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

Colour Mood Gift Guide: Raspberry Plum + Ethical Fashion & Personal Style Tips 2019

Amor Milagre Spring Fashion Personal Style 2019 Raspberry Plum colour mood Ethical Handmade Gift Shop Art Apparel Organic Vegan Baby & Child red amormilagre.com

Raspberry, plum, berries, pinks, and crimsons have always connected with me.  When designing for apparel, home interiors, and especially when painting, these beauties lead the way to amazing adventures.  Wear them together or as an accent to a neutral outfit.  Soothing to the soul, rich deep pigments feel as delicious on the eyes as a bowl of sumptuous, ruby, jeweled raspberries.

This journal post launches a new series by Amor Milagre that provides Designer Tips for a Gentle Life:  Ethical Fashion Design & Personal Style.  Many more Colour Moods for women, men, Baby & Child are coming up!  Film will follow shortly here.  There are so many connections made by colour.  Memory-driven and emotional connections.  To explore this further, please check out my upcoming Design Books.

Amor Milagre Spring Fashion Personal Style 2019 Raspberry Plum colour mood Ethical Handmade Gift Shop Art Apparel Organic Vegan Baby & Child red closet amormilagre.com

Coming Up Soon:  Sylph:  A New Amor Milagre Apparel Collection, made with Ethically Sourced, Organic Cotton Fabric in Natural Cotton Colours as well as organic vegetable-dyed hues.  Pieces will be available to purchase soon for Summer 2019, here on the Organic Apparel & Toys Collection page, for women and toddlers.  Menswear and baby clothing is coming up, too!  A journal post to celebrate the release of these lovely, handmade garments will appear on this NEWS! page this Spring season.  Subscribe at the bottom of the page to stay tuned!

A rich tone pairs well with a neutral outfit, seen here, a floral berry scarf with a cream sweater.

The colours frame the face and draw attention to your naturally berry coloured lips and gemstone eyes.

Welcome to the Soul!  How many amazing connections can you reveal each day?

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!

Visit the Shop to bring these originals and art prints home with you!

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!

 

Coming Up:

The Organic Vegan Cookbook Collection

Photography Art Print Collections, featuring a Botanical Series that includes flowers from these posts.

More romantic, healthy lifestyle tips are coming up in my new book collections.  Inspiration is written into the books already in the shop.

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.

“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

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.

Lettuce Topiary

Amor Milagre Lettuce Topiary Easter Egg Organic Garden Spring 2018 Organic Vegan, Art & Design amormilagre.com

A topiary of lettuce seedlings makes a delicious fresh salad and a beautiful window garden to enjoy all year.  Growing plants from seeds is especially rewarding when you share your new friends with someone.  Seeds make lovely gifts, and they can be easily slipped into an envelope with a letter to a friend.  (Look for organic non-GMO seeds).  Children and babies love to nurture their toys and their baby plants.  Gently caring for plants shows you how to gently care for yourself.  Gardening is beneficial and healing for children of all ages from 0-1000.  Plants improve air quality, and freshen up your life.  Fresh food feels good in the soul and body.  The practice of topiary is old and loving.  Create, inspire, enjoy!

Amor Milagre Lettuce Topiary 1 Easter Egg Organic Garden Spring 2018 Organic Vegan, Art & Design amormilagre.com

Shape the lettuce topiary by following the shape of your desired dish.  Trim the leaves lightly, not too low/short, allowing to regrow.  Place the leaves into a bowl for a fresh green salad.  This dish is egg-shaped, just in time for Spring and Easter.  Enjoy eating your tender salad greens.  Set the planting dish back on a sunny windowsill.  Water as needed so the plants regrow to provide another salad.

More Spring and Easter inspiration for you and your dear ones is coming up!  (Try to either reuse a container or if buying a new one, look for ceramic or non-toxic, sturdy materials.  Avoid flimsy plastic  when possible.  Think longevity, renewable, natural materials.) . You can use/make 3-D wire topiary frames in the shape of bunnies or baby chicks for a very Springy, Easter feeling, too.  The possibilities are endless!  We also grew rainbow Swiss chard, seen above.  Our newest plantings include cherry tomato seeds, spinach, garlic, and some teddy bear sunflower seeds, that will live in the garden later.  More organic salad recipe inspiration coming soon!

Favourite Tools Part 1

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Tools are everywhere.  From your hands, feet, mind, heart, soul, expressions, and body to your hat, spoons, musical instruments, food, sun, moon, and pencils, everything is a tool to help us inspire positivity.  Every room in our home stores our favourite tools.  In the kitchen, a wooden spoon is always there, ready to use.  Screwdrivers and hammers dot the basement as we finish a room.  Paint brushes dry out by the sink, while lamps await our touch so they can shine their light for us.  Notebooks excitedly lay and turn pages for new stories and friends to be invented.  Hats shade our eyes, as we walk in the deer tracks in the snow, meditating in nature.  What are your favourite tools?

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

In the kitchen:  the wooden spoon, a sharp knife, fresh food, and a favourite pot.  When you have favourites, you don’t need anything else.  Everything in our home is our favourite.  Minimal belongings help us to be organized, uncluttered, and serene.  Old things are mended or sold, donated, or given as a gift to someone who sees it as their favourite.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Gravity is a great tool when paired with some great techniques.  A twist in the hand, and you have fresh, ripe fruit.  Wild ones eat fallen fruit, seeds, nuts, and plants.  The wind spreads seeds everywhere as a wonderful transportation system/ride.  Nature works together, and we try to have the things in our home work together with us, respecting nature.  We make as much as we can by hand.  This has been a goal of mine since birth.  I always wanted to learn how to make everything.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Babies learn to use natural tools such as their voice, energy, and body.  If we teach them gently, they will live, think, and love gently, too.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

So many tools to help us do what we like.  Umbrellas, for baby and me, take us on a tour of a world under water droplets and reflective light.  When paired with natural rubber rain boots, a grand adventure is upon us.  Saved and stored foods bide us time to cook with all year long.  With our tools come the processes, and then the results, adapting to our ever changing tastes.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Scissors snip hair to keep healthy habits fresh.  Sconces shine sweetly on a dimmer sweet on the eyes, not too often on cloudy days, as I paint starry skies and ocean waves.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Just like choosing fresh ingredients for baking and cooking, tools must fulfill their destined purpose, function, ergonomics, and feel good to use.  A tool that gives you splinters needs the help of another tool to smooth it out, making it safe for your hands.  This gentle mending can be applied to everything from relationships to learning new things.  If you’re stuck, try something else.  Light and shade, in balance, are healthy for the nervous system and for good rest, following Nature’s clock.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

From paint brushes and chisels to pencils, we use a large number of tools every day.  We take care of our tools so they work for us for a very long time.  Then they can be passed on to work for others, too.

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Colours colours everywhere!  I use art and design as a tool to work with moods and emotions.  I arrange artwork to create a feeling for each space.  Wallpaper and bedding.  Interiors & exteriors.  Garden plant design.  Children’s book nursery illustrations.  Custom house paint colours.  Mixing colours is a large part of what I do.  These primary coloured watercolour paints were found on a trip to Hungary at one of the last remaining pigment mills that uses water power.  Good craftsmanship for any tool lends ease of use.  I only have to use a tiny bit of these colours to mix extraordinary hues.  A knife that is sharp slices a tomato gently and nicely.  It’s not crushed and the user is not strained.  Take care of your tools so they take care of you.  Ergonomics are important, especially for constant use.  How is your body aligned when using your favourite tools?

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

To read more about our favourite tools and organization for a beautiful day, please check back for our upcoming lifestyle and design books.  Our book collection is coming very soon.  I source responsible paper and materials.  All books are made to order and handmade with love and care by me.  I sign each book and can write custom messages to your dear ones.  More on this soon!
