We are starting a new series here at Beneath the Crust!
This & That is a Saturday round-up of the things we found interesting on the web.
Already, Maria, Sophie and I send each other videos, links and articles of what we're reading/watching or little tid bits we've stumbled upon throughout the week. Sometimes (if the content merits) it will spark a long discussion or debate. This & That is just another way in which we can bring you all in on our daily conversations!
Check back every Saturday for a list of things that will entertain, amuse, inform, intrigue, or set you pondering.
Valentine's Day is coming! This is one of Sarah's favorite tutorials for decorating Valentine's Day-themed cookies.
A really cool DIY makeover idea to turn a dresser into a nightstand.
If you are feeling less ambitious than Sophie when it comes to your reading list for 2018, then this 25 must-read classics for women might be a good place to start. We can't vouch for all of the books on the list, but there are some great recommendations. (Maria found this link, but Sarah wants to add that Dorothy Sawyer's Gaudy Night is a fantastic read!)
There's a pavilion at the Winter Olympics in South Korea made up of a new material that absorbs 99% of the light that hits it. It's the "darkest building on Earth."
On a similar note: What could be better than a figure skating rivalry??
If you're sitting on the couch drinking a cup of coffee and looking for something to click through, these photos of amazing coincidences are just so cool.
And now that you've wasted time clicking through photos on the internet, how about an article on the unsettling effects of technology?
From Maria: "I have every intention of getting indoor plants but I know so little. This is helpful!" A Guide to Succulents
We are Polish (ok, only 25%, but our Polish Grandmother has instilled in us such an appreciation for our heritage, particularly a love for the food!) so we couldn't resist this little piece about 4 Lenten traditions from your Polish grandma.
And here's a sweet little video about motherhood. To all the mamas out there: keep doing what you're doing!
