Q & A Miniview with Amor Milagre: A Scrumptious Trio

Amor Milagre Q & A Miniviews A Scrumptious Trio Ginger Root Organic Vegan Recipes Ethical Handmade Gift Shop Art Apparel Baby & Child food amormilagre.com

Thank you for all your lovely questions, comments, shares, and stories this past year.  In this Miniview (Mini Q & A Interview Series), I’ll answer one question at a time.

Q:  What are your favorite food combinations for cooking family dinners?

A:  I have many, but for Winter, I really love organic ginger root, garlic, and shallots together…in everything!  It works gently in sauces, soups, appetizers, on vegetables, in dips, and with fruit to create a softness.  The scent fills the house with a warm, cozy cloud of sweet ginger.  Our bodies love it because it really helps boost the immune system and keep us healthy with all the germs about in town.  I like to sauté these three, minced, in olive oil, salt, and pepper, on low heat.  When tender, add in other things or add it on top of others.  We’ll be growing these in our new garden, here at Christmas Rose Cottage, this Spring -Summer -Autumn.  This healthy superfood grouping is soothing for the senses and for stomachs, little and big.  Ginger was very helpful for maternity illness.  I find natural foods so beautiful.  The garlic’s airy winged shells, the ginger’s aromatic colour, and my tearful shallotful eyes try to admire their lilac and russet hues fading into one another. 

I have included this trio in my new Cookbooks, releasing in 2020.  A new Film Series that involves some organic vegan recipe ‘How To’s’ is also on the menu.  More Q & A’s are coming up!  Please message your questions here.  Happy Holiday Cooking!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce Recipe: Delicious, Quick, Easy, Organic, Vegan, Sugarless

Amor Milagre Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce Recipe- Quick, Easy, Organic, Vegan, Sugarless Ethical Handmade Gift Shop amormilagre.com

Our family is always thankful for the gifts we share.  A favourite gift is one we gave to ourselves, a menu for Thanksgiving (+ every day and for all holiday meals) that is simple, delicious, vegan, organic, sugarless, and just what we like!  We did keep the cranberry sauce on the table, but this is how we make it:

Cranberry Sauce

Organic Vegan Ingredients:

To a pot, we add a bag/bunch of whole cranberries, grown and harvested from a responsible, organic local farm.  Add some water, cinnamon, a tiny pinch of pink salt, a crack of black pepper, and a lid.  Simmer for ~ 5 minutes until soft.  Sir, serve, and enjoy!

 

This recipe is included in my upcoming Cozy Winter Cookbook, containing vegan organic sugarless recipes that are simple and pleasurable to make.  These fruits are already sweet, so no ‘sugar’ is needed, but if you need to, you could add a tiny bit of natural sweetness with agave or date syrup.

Cranberries are lovely to eat throughout all four seasons, hot or cold just like a jam or fruit spread.  Dried cranberries are so versatile and can be used in fresh salads, dry nut mixes, in your morning oatmeal, baked in breads, and dotted over cold food salads and baked dishes.  Cranberries are a superfood and a good source of Vitamin C and antioxidants, as well as providing several other beneficial minerals.  They taste great, and if you’re new to them, take a little bit and keep trying until you’re used to it.  You might just love these red bog jewels!  They pair well with:  starches like toast and potatoes, green leafy vegetables, beets, and they compliment other rich flavours such as a velvety mushroom sauce on pasta.  Cranberries are amazing in pies, turnovers, tarts, crumbles, or served warm as a dessert with vegan icecream, with melted cacao, or on their own.

Unlike some other berries, this type was first named for the plant appearance itself, and not for the colour of the berry or plant name.  Cranberries originally got their name, Crane Berry, when settlers saw the plants’ flowers, and they thought the petals resembled the shape of a crane’s bill and head.  We’re going to try to grow some crane berries next year.  They like wet conditions and are grown from cuttings.  They are wild, native plants so hopefully it works well.  Stay tuned for our new gardens in 2020!

I made this brilliantly red sweet-tart side dish last night, and to the little diners’ delight, it only took a moment to cook.  Who says Thanksgiving dinner needs to be time consuming or stressful to prepare?  Or happen all on one day?  We like to celebrate the whole week with small simple pleasures.  Who planned the traditional odd menu of heavy foods that don’t really go well together or feel good to eat together?  It’s a juggling act of timing for the cook, who often does the cleaning and decorating as well.  Emotions transfer into food.  We’re mindful to cook with Love and Patience for a soothing day.  Moderation is a nice option as well. 🙂  You can always enjoy leftovers the week through, and they often taste better the next day anyways.  We’ve redesigned our holidays so we can relax and enjoy our day together in our new, quiet home.  I prefer the European menus with smaller amounts, but a balance of flavours and nutrition.  We like the plant foods in the usual spread, but we choose one at a time and mix them with lighter dishes for better digestion and more enjoyment of dining.  Remember, you may do what you like.  There are no rules for designing a holiday menu.  Which dishes are your favourites from all time?  A gracious Thank You! for connecting with us here, and a very Happy Healthy Thanksgiving to you and your Dear Ones!  XOXO Amor Milagre

Pleasures for the Weekend: Autumn 2019

Amor Milagre Shop Pleasures for the Weekend Autumn Trees Sugared Fruit Fall Interior Decor 2019 Ethical Gift Shop amormilagre.com

A quiet walk under the swaying trees.  Laying on a blanket of uniquely beautiful leaves.  A harvest festival in town or garden.  Revealing treasures from a box marked “Autumn” and a sip of warm spiced cider kindle our hearts.  Bunny ears and witch hats patiently wait on the mudroom bench for their big day.  There are so many delights this season for us all to enjoy!  We’re washing sweaters and trying on last year’s coats, hats, and mittens.  Little ones grow with the trees.  Puzzles and ghost paintings sleep scattered on tarped floors.  Closets change over into plum knits and sienna layers.  Anise stars spin in pots on the stove, waking the Autumn elves each morning.  Crows soar and call all day, and pumpkins line the lane.  Spring flower bulbs are tucking into their new garden beds.  Paint swatches are being untaped from walls, and rollers kiss the dust away.  Windows are now clean and clear to view the rustling trees, and soon sweet delicate snowflakes.  Yesterday, Nature’s colours were bright, and overnight, they’ve turned crisp, golden, & earthen.  The leaves are falling fast, so let’s all get out and dance:  crunch, scuffle, shuffle!  Happy Golden Leaf Week & Happy Birthday Autumn Babies, Make a Wish!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Green to golden, crimson, plum.  My beloved Autumn has come.  Tangerine, apricot, chestnut.  Dusty hazy seeded sky…and what?  A walk under the trees.  Let’s speak in leaves.  A basket of deeply coloured wild berries, fresh bread, cucumber tomato balsamic salad, hot cacao, and a cozy plaid blanket unwinds your senses with a picnic in the country forest, a city park, your back garden, and anywhere you desire.  Pause and connect with Nature.  Feel the changes.  All throughout Autumn, picnics of small and grand scales are waiting.  Safely explore the beautiful light of arching rainbows and tree limbs above.  Hear the rustling of furred friends below, preparing for Winter’s cold snow.  What flavour combinations do you Love?  Olives and marmalade?  Anything goes!  Fresh from the garden, from shops, and handmade.  Let’s get outside where Fall memories won’t fade.  Happy Autumn picnics to you and your Dear Ones!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

A Tomato that Tastes like a Tomato

Amor Milagre Heirloom Tomatoes Organic Garden Farm Summer Harvest 2019 Ethical Organic Gift Shop Handmade Gift Shop Art Baby & Child amormilagre.comTo grow a tomato that tastes like a tomato, the old ways are beautiful, flavourful, and healthy.  Let the bugs roam, let the sun shine, let the rain fall, and let plants be natural in Nature. 

We love to plant organic, non-GMO, heirloom tomato seeds, in a sunny spot each year, on a fresh layer of homemade organic plant compost, in our organic no-dig edible plant garden.  Clear other plants from the bottom layer for optimal air flow and remove lower leaves after they’ve grown strong and healthy.  (No sprays or chemicals.  No tools needed).  Enjoy the colours and taste of all kinds of lovely tomatoes!  Plant organic basil nearby for a delicious salad picnic in the garden.  Guiding the plants, watching the flowers and bees, and being a helper of Nature feels amazing.  We love to take a closer look and thank Mamma Nature for her beautiful designs, colours, textures, scents, sounds, and tastes.  We’re fascinated by her natural packaging, recycling, and life cycles.  We also save the tomato seeds for planting new plants and label with the date.

Heirloom tomatoes taste wonderful and have old origins.  The seeds were passed down from generations of gardeners.  They are heirlooms like a beautiful antique gift from your ancestors, but these gifts produce gorgeous food over and over again to sustain a healthy family of growers.

Remember to:  Support your local organic plant farmers and gardeners at local markets, restaurants, and shops.  Get your hands dirty.  It feels good to connect to the Earth and grow healthy food for yourself, Dear Ones, and your community.  Children love to grow and eat their own garden.  One handful of seeds grows an abundance of healthy food to be eaten that day and preserved for the year.  Grow flavours, colours, quality, and good health in your garden all year round.  Plants are best when eaten when in season, ripe, fresh, and kissed by the sun.  Happy Late Summer Foods!  Enjoy Nature: The Best Show on Earth!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

There is No Excuse for Child Abuse or Abuse of Anyone

Amor Milagre No Excuse for Child Abuse A Gentle Life Book Collection all ages & genders Ethical Handmade Gift Shop Art Organic Baby & Child amormilagre.comWe are all babies…just of different ages.  There is no excuse for child abuse, and since we are all children, there is no excuse for abuse of anyone, no matter their age.  If you were abused, you cannot continue the damage on your children, Self, or others.  You must heal yourself, and know yourself, and not put yourself in situations where you could harm someone.  Seek help and help yourself.  Examine your thoughts.  It takes you to choose to unlearn the negatives and learn what you want to know:  Love.  Heal with Love.  Love is already and always within you.  Feel you are Love, for you are whole.

Abuse is a pollution that spreads quickly and roots deeply.  Abuse is not OK, and there is no excuse.  Beware of false apologies/promises.  Abuse takes many shapes, and the boundaries are easily crossed once one kind of abuse has been acted upon.  Violence makes more violence, and this solves nothing.  Problems can be resolved with calm, loving communication.  Love can change our world from ‘violent’ to ‘peaceful’.  We must change the chain reactions we spread to be positive ones, for everywhere we go we take our energy.  Let our energy be healthy and positive to inspire others to feel loved and loving inwards and outwards.  Dissolve fear and don’t project your fears on others, especially not in the form of abuse, and not on children.

Everyone deserves respect and safety.  Healing may take time, but if you change your attitude to being loving and patient with yourself, you’ll learn how to be loving and patient with others.  No one can heal abusive people for them, but abusive people can heal themselves (away from those they hurt).  It is their responsibility to heal themselves and replace harmfulness with helpfulness.  Protect people who are being harmed in any way.

If one person is harmed, it negatively affects the history of All in the Universe.  Even one negative thought ripples out and hurts everyone.  There is more to this world than people sense.  We all need to move in the direction of Love, all the time, and then everyone will be what they need.

If someone harms you, do not believe their negative words about you.  You are a beautiful soul and loved by the Universe.  We each have our own power to think about ourselves how we like.  Don’t harm yourself or others because others harm you.  Pain may be familiar, but it’s not healthy or comforting.  Knowing what pain is like is not your fault, but you can overcome it, and choose good health for yourself in everything you do and think.  Love is the way to heal from pain.  Find positive ways to replace harmful habits with healthy ones.  Your thoughts and body are sacred for you to care for.  We have a choice to believe we are loved and wonderful, no matter who is around us.  If others have a problem, it is their problem to resolve on their own (away from those they were hurting), and the people being hurt are not the source.  People have no right to lash out at others because they are hurting.  Parents need to take healthy, loving care of their children with endless patience.  Children need to know that their world is safe and their bodies and beings are respected.  Everything is new for them in this life.  Let’s allow their worlds to be beautiful, healthy, and loving.  Their world is theirs to explore, and they need healthy guides for learning positive ways to care for themselves.

People of all ages need to feel free to ask for help, without the fear of something equally harmful or worse happening to them in the process.  Let the world change from spending money on violence to designing a reliable world-wide system for abuse survivors to be truly helped whenever needed.  This system can educate all to prevent abuse, too.  It can be added into every annual school curriculum as a whole class, for all genders.  A class with no tests, other than Life.  A class to raise awareness about abuse and bullies, self care, how to prevent and protect, how to heal, how to seek help, how to help others, and how to not abuse others or the Self.  Abuse happens everywhere, every day.  Most people don’t ask for help.  Who can they ask?  Who can they trust?  Children are mostly home, so how can anyone know to help?  Do they know what ‘abuse’ is?  Just because ‘it’s the way it is” and the life they know doesn’t mean it’s healthy or the way life could be.  Where is a system that truly helps?  Awareness is key.  Help people when you see they need it.  How could we know where to ask for help?  Of all the things our world needs, this helpful system would be extremely beneficial to the whole-health of all.  Reporting abuse is very important because it is so common and destructive.  With the current systems, when a survivor bravely reports abuse, what really happens?  Do they get the help they need?  Reporting abuse is important to make an awareness of how common this issue is, to protect individuals and future survivors, and to help ourselves stand up to violence in peaceful ways.  What could be truly helpful for them?  Who is there to listen and teach them about how wonderful they are?  The world needs patience and Love to help.  The world needs to refocus funds and jobs to be in the direction of helping because there are so many people in need of help.

We can choose goodness for ourselves, starting with our thoughts.  Thoughts turn into actions, so be mindful to layer Love into all of your thoughts.  You deserve to feel that you are Love.  Your soul, mind, body, heart, and energy are pure Love.  Be Love!  Be purely you!  Live in the Light!

Children are everything good!  Each person is unique and has their own needs, so be patient and change your perspective to help them if you don’t see solutions to your questions.  They look to you for help.  Do not harm children in any way.  This universal message is important to remember always in everything we do and say.  No one has the right to harm.  Everyone can live peacefully and respectfully in Love for All.

Remember:  Is this helpful or harmful?  Am I helping or harming?  Be helpful for yourself, everyone, and everything.  Positivity is powerful and healing.

I send healing Love out to All.  xoxo ~Amor Milagre

Pleasures for the Weekend: Spring 2019

Amor Milagre Easter Photography Art Prints 2019 lamb Pleasures for the Weekend Spring Ethical Organic Gift Shop Handmade Gift Shop Art Vegan Baby & Child amormilagre.com
Photography Shop Opening Soon!

Planting seeds of goodness for a lovely Spring & Summer.  Tidying the gardens and potting up some fresh soil to plant organic basil seeds to enjoy in Summer’s dishes.  Reading Spring faerie poetry to help the seedlings grow strong and healthy.  Inventing a few simply wonderful organic ways to celebrate Spring and this Easter weekend.  What do you enjoy planning for your weekend?

We love to splash in puddles outside on fresh rainy days or at a local plant nursery.  Devising edible planting lists and layouts in sketchbooks while watching Gardner’s World is very fun with a cozy cup of tea and fresh cream clothes.  The windows open for fickle winds to breeze through our hair.  Drawing new book illustrations in candlelit evenings to low tender violin hums, when all the world is asleep, tickles the imagination and delights my dreams.  Writing about our week in letters accompanied by astounding drawings, with stamps placed proudly by little bunny paws.  Visiting the new fleecy lambs at a local farm is a special Easter tradition.  A gentle lifestyle reminder whirls in our hearts when we smile and quietly cheer them on as they learn to walk.  All of the sheep smile, too.  It’s the natural way for all of us, remember?  Enjoying the week and now enjoying the weekend. 

Getting personal items ready to sell & replace is on the list.  Did you know little bunnies grow quickly sometimes in great bunny spurts?  Must be what comes from eating so much lettuce.  A pleasure we have each season is carefully choosing new children’s clothing and also making seasonal collections.  I’ll soon release a collection of organic apparel that I make for us.  Now you can wear these lovely healthy items, too!  I’ll also release another new collection, this time ethical woodworking! These original designs include handmade dollhouses, home & garden gifts, and also unique pyrographs. So much of what we do is catching up, so when we carve time for new adventures and fresh air, we have energy to catch up with all those little weekly necessities.  This is a beautiful process that allows for more adventures big or as small as writing a letter or getting my new ethical stationery collection ready for you to shop.  Letter writing is a great passion of ours and a freeing form of expression.  Try even writing to yourself today, and see what comes of it!  Did you know that about yourself?  More on this is coming up in some new uniquely designed book collections!

This weekend, we’ll try a different local Spring Festival.  We’re building positive traditions for our family to enjoy each season, while keeping our sensitive needs met.  So many festivals are overwhelming, energy-draining, and unhealthy.  We find ways to do what feels good and fun.  A quiet picnic at a local park or beach is on the list.  Being out in vast Nature feels nourishing for a fresh season and a healthy holiday.  Happy Spring to you and your Dear Ones!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Designer Tip of the Day:  Colours in Time

(Featured in my Upcoming Design Book).

Why do you connect with your favourite colours?

Did the connection begin in your childhood or a past life?

Does the colour enhance your unique beauty?  

Does it feel familiar?  How does the colour feel? 

How does this feeling affect your day, attitude, posture, behaviour, and language?

When designing collections and when shopping, I choose ethically made, non-toxically dyed, organic fabrics that are good for the skin.  When shopping vintage, to reuse clothing, I stay mindful of the materials.  Even if the fabric content and make is unknown, how does it feel and how much wear can it stand?  My favourite clothes are loved and worn very often.  A well-curated small wardrobe serves well.  I choose very carefully.  Can the skin breathe?  Skin can be protected and honoured by choosing healthy beauty & skin products, apparel, and house materials.  Natural, organically dyed cloth is a wonderful luxury.  How much more one can appreciate a deep hue, after learning this specific process, especially if you love to dabble in your garden.  How many baths and plants does it take to make one very special dress?

For more about finding and evolving your very personal style, check back for more journal posts and new books!

We freshen the house each week during the year, but in the Autumn and Spring, it feels especially healthy to reorganize, sort, and reset plans for good, useful household routines.  Each item has a home and a purpose.  I always adore the last part of my favourite show, Gardener’s World, when they give “Jobs for the Weekend.”  You can apply this list idea not only for gardening, but for housekeeping, business, and outtings!  Instead of Jobs for the Weekend, we call it Pleasures or Ideas for the Weekend.  Set up pleasures for yourself.  Like Mary Poppins says, “In every task that must be done, there is an element of fun!”  Here are a few ideas that we’re doing this season.  Happy Spring!  Please visit my Shop for fresh inspiration for your home and a healthy lifestyle.  I’ll share a few ‘Pleasures for the Weekend’ each season, and you can read more in A Gentle Life Book Collection. What kind of pleasures will you plan for this weekend?  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

~Sort and review items.  Keep the useful for the every day, used lately, and useful for this season.  Organize one area a day/week so you take your time mindfully.  Sell, donate, gift, recycle, or reuse unwanted items in another way.  Gently and lovingly organize useful items with tidy, beautiful aesthetics.  Repair any items that need mending.  Crack the windows and clean your home with non-toxic cleaners.  (We use vinegar for most things.  It works wonderfully for organic beauty routines, too!  A post for this is coming up.)

~Wash windows, inside and out, for a clear view and mindful perspective.

~Go on outtings to seasonal local places that are now open for Spring.  We enjoy strolling plant nurseries for fresh inspiration.  (Remember to look for sustainable packaging when plant shopping.  Bring reusable shopping bags with you when doing any kind of shopping!  A post about this is coming up.)

~Cook with seasonal, farm-ready vegetables and fruits.  Revel in the beautiful shapes, flavours, and colours of Mamma Nature!

~Browse your library and request specific books.  Read stories and poems about the current time of year.  (A favourite book list post is coming up!)  Notice in your daily surroundings what is revealed in the book illustrations.  What wonders are around you that you may have overlooked?  How refreshing it is to be aware of life regrowing this month!

New Home Design Series & Books, Interior Design & Sustainable Building

Amor Milagre Atelier Design Studio Interiors The Shop at Dove Cottage Baby & Child Collection Art Design Books Healthy Organic Life Apparel Baby Organic Nursery amormilagre.com

Big changes are happening here.  In essence, we’re moving!  In the seasons ahead, we’ll have new views and designs to include here.  When humans have made too many machines, highways, and sound pollution around your home, it’s time to move out to quiet land, and to rest in Nature.  Where is there any left?  We’re looking into it, and we will build including Nature, to avoid upsetting her loving system as much as we can.  We were just finishing up the building of our handmade organic home, our lovely Dove Cottage, when we were bombarded with, even more, unrelenting sound that will only grow.  The past years have been so loud and disturbing for nervous systems and every system we live.  Before we can settle in and rest from years of being on-the-go while building, another home needs to be born.  Little garden seeds to sew into the rich, warm Earth.  Special plants to bring along.  Fresh blossoms to behold.  New laughs to hold Dear.  Our days speak of our new Dove Cottage.

I’ll be posting some design How-tos as we set forth again, as well as the releases of my Organic Design Books.  My desk is layered in blueprints, new exciting floor layouts, and watercolour room sketch-ups.  Lists, lists, lists.  When you think you’re almost done building your ‘forever’ home, it’s exhausting and worrisome to do it again, but in many ways it’s refreshing to think about the healthy days and beautiful sleep-filled nights, under the stars, without any neighbouring lights, and the loving memories and sweet conversations.  Quiet, peace, restore, live.  We’re worn out, but happy to design the life we need, to give ourselves everything we can for good health from food to sleep.  Sensitive people and all people need the option of quiet to rest, heal, and sort, leaving space for new wonderful thoughts of Love & Peace.  For more, explore my books!

Atelier Amor Milagre design services will continue to be available, as well as The Shop at Dove Cottage.  Please send a message with your design project details and custom gift ideas.

Breathe Fresh Air for Cell Health, Anti-Cancer Diet & Healing Illness Naturally


Amor Milagre Fresh Air for Cell Health, Anti-Cancer Diet / Healing Illness Naturally The Shop at Dove Cottage Baby & Child Collection Autumn Fall 2018 Art Design Books Healthy Organic Life Apparel Baby Organic Nursery Toys amormilagre.com

Breathe in and out.  Fresh air for your lungs, cells, and everywhere.  Even your hair and skin soften in real air.  Unpolluted winds refresh and boost the immune system and promote healthier sleep patterns.  Cancer is another illness, a word, a warning sign, that something is not right.  There is a lack of oxygen, fresh natural air, and a healthy balance that stems from all directions from the physical to mental to soul.  For all of the illnesses I have overcome, fresh air and quietness were prominent factors in healing and prevention.  Massive life changes heal.  Removing stressors is key.  Eat organic plants.  Live unplugged and in natural light.  Don’t fight illness.  Heal it.  Imagine not having to overcome illness in the first place.  Imagine systems and professionals who help and are compensated for real improvements.  Transitions into health and basic needs heal.  Connect with Mamma Nature, for she knows, just as the body knows, how to balance and restore.  I don’t believe any matter feels healthy boxed in, sealed up, or contained and separated from Nature.  Let animals and plants shine in the sun.  The universe needs to get back to Nature.  Healthy air, clouds, soil, and water make our food, our Life.  Let’s protect and respect Nature and ourselves.  Everything you do, be aware.  Small scale and large scale, and endless time scale.  Is this helping or hurting?

Moving forward, our home and health designs require clean, fresh, natural air without the consent or influence of others.  Our past and current designs did as well, but when depending on surrounding environments and people, intentions are frustrated into more illness.  If you can’t open a window to rejuvenate your home, it’s time to dance over to a fresh field and start anew.  When your voice is unheard or not understood, unstick, let go, move on, and remove yourself from negativity.  This idea works in many ways and planes for healthy living.  Begin again, tiring I know, but this time, with the knowledge that you can have what you need, when you make it so.  Make sure your surroundings match your needs.  Pause anything or anyone that doesn’t allow you to have your needs.  First take care of you.  This excerpt is from my self-health book collection.  For more, read my current and upcoming ethically made books from The Gentle Life Collection.

How are you?  Are you filling up with Love from within?  Do you know Love is always there for you?  Are you listening for the unbalance?  Are you surrounding yourself with basic needs for wonderful health and Love?  Are you breathing in good energy?  Know that you are Love.  Be yourself.  Be Love!

Stay tuned for more anti-cancer diet / preventing & healing from illness recipes, books, and nutrition benefit information.  It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Let’s find ways to not have to have a month for this or any illness.  What can we do to not accumulate cancer and illness?  Changes…big healthy wonderful natural changes!  Start small and crack a window, take a walk all bundled up, write letters and use your voice for change, and practice breathing deeply and gently.

A little matching film for this organic journal post is below.

Stay well!  Be Purely you!  Live in the Light! ~Amor Milagre

The Film for this post will come back again soon.

A related Universal Message:  Anyone who is trying to leave an unhealthy relationship, home, place, or country could be met kindly with compassion and nonviolence by new friends/the world/compassionate ‘leaders’.  Be aware to not go from one abuse to another.  Humans, let’s break the vicious cycle and start a new one of kindness, especially for people in need of a healthy change.  Unlearn abuse, fear, and judgement.  Learn Love.  Protect babies of all ages 0-1000.  Teach compassion and all can be well in harmony, respect, and consideration.  Strive for healthy communication and live in the peace of it.  There is room for everyone in this universe.  Humans made the lines.  Nature grows everywhere, embracing all life.  Man can take down their emotional borders and let Love go in and out.  We send Love, strength, and hope out into the Universe all the time so that this energy will travel to anyone who needs it.  Feel it in your heart.  Everyone can do something to help.  Let’s use our voices for helpful Peace.

“Wednesday, play with your food.” Organic Baby, Toddler, & Me Snacks

Amor Milagre Autumn Play with Your Food Baby & Toddler Snacks Art Design Organic Vegan natural children child club art class 2018 Collection amormilagre.com

Ever since I was very small, I’ve seen faces everywhere.  It was a way to entertain myself as I walked along the swirling lines of houses.  When I would prepare snacks for younger kids, I made a face with the food, so they’d have fun eating it.  And so, I’ve been doing this.  It’s funny to eat a raisin eye and crunch a nutty nose, when seen with an innocent, vegan soul who doesn’t take it literally, it’s a fun moment together.  Eating clouds and trees and octopus beret hats.  It’s nice to see a smiling face on your plate each day and a smiling family to match.  Children think the silliest things are hilarious, and it can help them eat well.  Little Angels here make their own faces at snack time.  This lightens the tiring task of eating before naps.  A green smoothie, (recipe coming up shortly), and a snack of nuts and fruit ensures a good rest for all.  Empty plates every time.  All is eaten, down to the last ‘jacket button’.  Perhaps, hospital meals, school lunches, and food everywhere would be better received when served with a smile?  Fun Halloween faces are coming up!  Happy Halloween and Happy Parenting!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Fresh Organic Garden Herb Tea Hair Rinse & Avocado Mask Snack


Amor Milagre Fresh Garden Herb Tea Hair Rinse Organic Vegan Non-Toxic natural beauty Recipe amormilagre.com

Today, we are strolling through our children’s garden to find plants for an herbal hair rinse.  Rosemary, lavender, anise hyssop, peppermint, thyme, and sage.  Garden fresh flavours and scents of the Earth.  Organic and pure, perfect in design, healthy and comforting, brew to cleanse hair, skin, mind, body, heart, and Soul.  Baby-and-Me bath with tea leaves.  A fortunate present moment together.  Nothing wasted.  Grown for good health, animals, and bees.  A Dear One’s adventure.  A garden of life!

Amor Milagre Fresh Garden Herb Tea Hair Rinse Organic Vegan Non-Toxic natural beauty Recipe amormilagre.com

Garden Herb Hair Rinse

Pick fresh organic herbs (no toxic sprays/chemicals/unnatural soil, use non-GMO plant seeds).  Steep in hot water until golden.  Breathe in the herbal steam.  Strain herbs to use later for more tea or use in the bath.  Drink some of this nourishing tea and/or add it into a bowl full of fresh, cool water.  Rinse hair in shower/bathtub for a natural clean routine.  Return plants back to the garden to compost when done.  The fresh herbal scents will awaken your senses, letting in light, resting in openness, while keeping your hair, scalp, skin, and all healthy.  Soften and condition hair and skin, if desired, with natural foods, like avocado below.  Inside and out.

Water is the best way to clean.  Start children off in life with habits that say:  “You are wonderful just the way you are!  Stay natural, be purely you!”  (More positive inspiration for all ages is featured in my books, artwork, organic recipe lifestyle journal, all in The Shop at Dove Cottage, and amormilagre.com.

Amor Milagre Fresh Avocado Face Mask Snacks Baby & Me Organic Vegan Non-Toxic natural beauty Recipe amormilagre.com

Avocado Hair & Skin Mask

A fresh mask for all ages.  This is especially fun for kids to try this tactile, healthy bonding beauty tip.  (Be aware of food allergies, as always).  Mash up avocado, set aside most of it for the snack, and smooth some on face and hair, a little will do for children.  Eat the avocado-wrap snack while the mask is on.  Add in seeds, dried fruit, nuts, olives, and/or beans.  Rest easy, and if with children, laugh and imagine funny green face/hair adventures.  Rinse off gently.  This beautifully coloured yellow-green routine is memorable and inspires more of the same, healthy, enjoyable habits for you and your Dear Ones.  More garden shares are coming soon!  xo ~Amor Milagre

Wild Rose Petal Bath

Amor Milagre Presents Wild Rose Petal Bath organic home, garden, healthy lifestyle amormilagre.com

Evening kitchen dancing in misty tones.  Dusty cinnamon cranberries bake, scenting the air warmly.  A walk where the wild roses roam, gently gathering fallen petals, so naturally pleasing and delicate.  The word ‘sweet’ was named for you.  A bath runs away into the night stars.  Twirling and swirling, the petals ride on faerie water tides.  Sweet is this bath, and noses giggle with petals that stick.  Look at those rosy cheeks, oh one fell into the water!  Laughs and unwound senses breathe.  Pajama families dance and sing into dreams:  light, loving, and airy.  In the morning, float out in vast Nature in the calming beauty that we all are.  Ocean, lake, pond, river, pool, or puddle.  Water is life!  Keep it healthy for all, clean it up, and stay natural.  Water, Earth, Air.  Feel it.  Be natural, be bare, be true, be purely you!  Live in the light!  ~Amor Milagre

Wild rose petals soothe the body and mind, unwind headaches, and heal the skin.  The sweet scent is entirely beneficial for the soul.

More ways of feeling connected with Nature are featured in my original children’s book collection and in my upcoming organic beauty and healthy lifestyle books, exclusively here at amormilagre.com.

**We gathered fallen wild rose petals, with no toxic sprays/chemicals/unnatural soil, use non-GMO plant seeds/plants.

Organic Stone Circle Garden

Amor Milagre Presents Stone Circle Garden organic home & garden sunflower amormilagre.com

A simple circle of Nature’s stones and organic compost makes magic in your garden and soul.  Let the glorious rain wash and nurture perennial wildflower seeds to surprise next season’s bees, while organic herbs sprout in the meantime, for little ones to taste on misty morning walks.  Temporary or permanent, to grow in beauty, this easy-to-design garden is a delight for the senses outside and seen from inside the home, too.  A little film to match below.  ~Amor Milagre PS Gardening ideas are also woven into my original children’s books!

Amor Milagre Presents Stone Circle Garden Film, Organic Home & Garden from Amor Milagre: Ethical Gift Shop on Vimeo.

How To:  Place a stick or garden stake at the center of where you want your garden.  Tie a string around it, and figure out how large of a circumference you’d like your garden to be.  Measure the radius amount and wrap that length of the string to another stick.  Trace the circle on the ground in the dirt or mark with stones.  This is a quick, natural, non-toxic way to mark out a garden.  You can insert more sticks/stakes to vertically visualize your circle garden, connecting with string, or start laying stones down in a circle.  Add organic compost and plant seeds and plants.  Et voila!  Let the rain help your plants grow very strong.  Water new plants in, and later water if really needed, but Nature knows best and grows best with natural rain rhythms.  Use saved rainwater in barrels and homemade organic compost for best results and ethical gardening practices.  Enjoy your blooms and edible organic foods every year.  This makes a beautiful winter garden structure as well.  You can build up the stones as high or thick as you like.  Ours is temporary so it is simply laid out.  Use garden stones, because they already live there and look more natural with plants.

Nature’s colours, shapes, and textures are varied and are all the more beautiful for it, humans included.  A great lesson for designing or appreciating anything/anyone:  natural, healthy, and unique.  More organic Home & Garden how to’s are featured in my upcoming ethical, healthy, organic lifestyle books.
