As many of you know, back in May we held a relaunch party for Florence and Millie here in Savannah. We thought we’d finally share about it with those who weren’t able to make it. The party was an amazing success! It was held to bring a personal connection to the blog. There was amazing artwork displayed by local artists, food made by our very own Kat Lucas, fun games, and a photo booth! There was also a raffle with different prizes offered to the attendees that included a tie from Hack and Hue, an independent tie shop out of Brooklyn, NY and illustrations from Heather Pullen.

We would just like to take a minute and thank all of you for being patient with us as we are on this (soon to end) hiatus. If we could write each of you a hand-written thank you card, it would be a Hammerpress thank you card, and it would look mighty fine.

We’re taking some time during our finals madness to do some baking therapy. Tomorrow’s recipe comes from this excellent cookbook, The Gluten-Free Bible. Don’t be fooled, the Cocoa Bottom Banana Pecan Bars we’re making don’t taste like gluten-free cardboard. We’ve made them before, and they’re big winners.
If you have celiac disease or are going on a gluten-free kick, this book is great to keep handy. It’s a comprehensive look at a gluten-free lifestyle and has a wide range of recipes. You’ll find healthy breakfasts, hearty entrees, and delicious desserts all in the same place, plus a lot in between.
Come back tomorrow for the Cocoa Bottom Banana Pecan Bars. They’re twice as good as they sound.

It’s the weekend! For many of you, that probably means some much deserved relaxation and down time. For us, it means a mad dash to get our finals done and finally (finally!!!) begin summer.
So please forgive us for not posting as regularly during this last week. You probably wouldn’t want to hear our delirious musings anyway.
While you’re waiting for our next post, enjoy some music we’ve been listening to. Enjoy your weekend, and have a little extra fun for all of us.

The geniuses at URBN INC have expanded their empire. If you’re a fan of Free People, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters or Terrain, I think you’ll be pretty happy with their newest addition, BHLDN.
BHLDN features heirloom and vintage wedding pieces. Among their collection are gowns, shoes, accessories, gifts and décor. For those of you planning a vintage dream wedding, this is the place to go. And even if you’re not planning a wedding, you could still spend a good bit of time just drooling over it all.
Today we’re featuring BHLDN’s décor collection. We’d argue that all of these beautiful pieces don’t have to be just for a wedding, though a wedding is probably the best excuse to drop the cash (unless you’ve just always wanted a $488 dollar cascade chandelier).
You can check out all the glory for yourself here.

Welcome to the fantastically eclectic kitchen of this thrift store-loving blogger, Love Made Me Do It. We absolutely love the one-of-a-kind furniture and vintage touch, which clearly took a lot of digging at thrift stores and flea markets. Amazing how a collection of kitchenware and furniture can come from so many different places and yet look so perfect together, huh?
We really could go on and on about how lovely this space is. The natural light, the cozy feel, the colors. Reds, blues and yellows always have a way of winning us over.
We would gladly spend some time here, if that much wasn’t clear already.

Happy Monday, y’all. I know I promised this recipe last Thursday, but I was sick (not from the frozen yogurt, I promise), so now you get to kick off your week with this treat instead. I promise it’ll help you get over the Monday blues.
If you read last Tuesday’s post, you’ll remember that this recipe comes straight from Sam Talbot’s cookbook, The Sweet Life. It’s the first recipe I’ve tried of his, and it totally delivers. It sure doesn’t taste like it came from a diabetic-friendly cookbook. And by diabetic-friendly I really just mean healthy.
For all the diabetics out there, this is the kind of stuff you and your blood sugar will love. It’s protein rich, low-carb and filling. And it tastes really, really good.
And for all the non-diabetics with happy pancreases, this recipe is still for you. Feel free to substitute the stevia with agave nectar or sugar.
3 cups 2% plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons coconut milk (I used vanilla)
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated Stevia In The Raw OR 1/2 cup sugar OR 2 tablespoons agave nectar
½ cup shredded coconut
Mix all ingredients except the shredded coconut in a large bowl and refrigerate for an hour or overnight. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker, following the manufacturer’s instructions for frozen yogurt. Add shredded coconut in last five minutes of cycle.

Get excited for Thursday’s recipe. It comes from this magnificent cookbook we just got our hands on, The Sweet Life by Sam Tablot. It’s so magnificent, in fact, that we just had to share it with you first.
Sam Tablot, a Top Chef contender, has type 1 diabetes (just like yours truly) and created a cookbook full of diabetic friendly recipes and tidbits about how to maintain healthy blood sugars. But this cookbook is a great buy for non-diabetics as well. Talbot has tons of delicious, health-conscious recipes that refute the idea that a diabetic diet should be restricted.
After all, everyone should have a Sweet Life, right?

We found these guys through Friends of Type, an awesome website full of font and type eye candy. Enormouschampion has a beautiful spread of note cards, prints, tea towels, and a collection of small wooden animals entitled Kingdom Animalia (trust us, it’s as great as it sounds).
Their tea towels are a must have. Enormouschampion has a thing with animals (who wouldn’t want a narwhal on their tea towels?) and we’re all about it. Plus we’re a big fan of their color schemes.
Check it out for yourself here.
