I was recently interviewed by author/blogger Corine Ganz about the nature of feng shui on her blog Hidden in France. During the interview Corine coaxed me to reveal my 5 Top Feng Shui Tips for Romance so do be sure to go read the entire post here. And see if you can find one “feng shui no-no” in Corine’s bedroom above–be sure to post your comments. Thanks, Corine for making my day brighter!

If you like Cool Whip, you’ll love this new church design in Germany. I think they’ve gotten a fabulous mix of yin and yang so I give it a feng shui thumb’s up. And kudos to any religious organization that would actually dare to support contemporary architecture / artists.

There are two young entrepreneurial women on our island who began a coffee business last fall and are doing gangbusters with it. Melissa and Meghan have a lot of creativity and wonderful personalities. This photo shows one of their coffee bags repurposed as a vase (put a glass jar inside to hold the water for your flowers). Recycling and reusing is excellent feng shui. Check out their 44 North Coffee blog:
12 Million people–many of them children–are at risk of death from starvation in Somalia. Mike Larder has captured their plight in his photo essay (be aware that these pictures are quite graphic). It’s good feng shui to help. Join the United Nations by texting ‘ AID to 27722 ‘ to automatically donate $10 to the UN’s relief efforts in Somalia.
Is eating good food good for your feng shui? I think it is!
Didn’t have any BBQ sauce on hand last night and was grilling babyback ribs. I looked in the pantry and put something together from the following ingredients—it worked and it was yummy!
* a couple of spoonsfuls of William Sonoma spicy fish rub
* half a spoon of salt
*half a spoon of pepper
*half a cup of dark balsamic vinegar
*half a cup of Pomi tomato sauce
* a generous spoonful of mustard
Whisk it all together and it makes about a cup of thick BBQ sauce. Put the sauce in a big Ziploc bag with the ribs and shake til all coated well. Leave to marinate a few hours then grill ’em!
Staycations at your own home can be a lot of fun if you’ve got yourself a little “home spa”. Check out this one in Maine.The outdoor tub has both hot and cold water options if the sun doesn’t heat the water warm enough for you. I love the feng shui of having cutout windows in fencing to spotlight both the view and creativity.
