Accessed via a long and peaceful driveway that bisects a small copse, there's something decidedly Harry Potter about Berwick Lodge as you first glimpse the imposing Victorian Arts Crafts manor house through the trees.With its red-brick Gothic facade and stunning gardens, it would make a decent stand-in for the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, although rather than the likes of Horace Slughorn and Pomona Sprout walking through the wood-panelled corridors, the hotel is run by the...

"I also encourage the association to organise programmes to unearth talents of members, such as in arts and crafts, which can indirectly help increase their income," he added. Ramli said Perkep played a huge role in helping police officers carry out their duties. "I admit there is heavy responsibility at home, as members of the police force, we need to be focused and dedicated 24 hours-a-day. At times, we have to sacrifice our time off with wife and children in order to meet the demands of the job," he said. — Bernama

If you believe that the way to a city's heart is through its food, you're in for quite a love affair! While Michelin Star restaurants may be opening all over India's capital city, some of the country's best dishes date back to the Mughal Empire, circa 17th century. The true beauty — and taste — of New Delhi's food lies in its rich history and diversity — there's something for everyone, and it's all delicious. Here are five authentic dishes to try on your next trip to the City of Djinns. 1. Biryani Richer and spicier than it's cousin, the pulao or pilaf, biryani varieties extend to vegetarian and even betel leaf flavored for the more discerning palate. Some of New Delhi's best are called Moradabai (named for a town in Northern India), Calcutta (this one has potatoes and is less spicy) and Pakistani biryani. My personal favorite is the k athal or jackfruit biryani, which can be found in Café Lota at the National Crafts Museum.

But kids, as usual, have it all figured out it's nothing but a day filled with fun candy and crafts. If you're longing to get back to those heart-filled glory days? It turns out there's a lot you can learn about how to properly celebrate from the time-honored children's ritual of exchanging valentines in class. It's about including everyone Rule number one of elementary school valentines is that everyone in the class gets one. It's not about being someone's one and only or picking favorites like a too-cool mean girl. It's about spreading the love to everyone in the room, whether you love them or not. Read more...

I think it is incredibly timely. There hasn't been an exhibition like this possibly really ever in this country. But women artists have always associated with materials which may be more readily associated with crafts, but then doing something possibly very new and radical with these materials, as well. While there are some pretty sophisticated items of artwork on display here, the atmosphere, to me, is pretty much very friendly and fun.

Ghadiri said in an interview with Persianesque Magazine that the exhibit is meant to reach one person at a time on the realities of life in Iran, hoping to break the misconceptions people have. “This exhibition is a celebration: I would like to take you on a journey through my motherland; a land full of colors and beauty, full of wonderful people, traditions, food, history, landscapes, arts, and crafts,” she said. “I am taking you to a space beyond media and politics, to a warm and joyful place, so that you can see the real story for yourself.” Ghadiri gave a Tedx talk at Purdue titledIran from a Different Lens,” which Elahi and other members of PAND saw online and that can be found on YouTube. The talk spurred them into booking the exhibit for Notre Dame and the community at large. The exhibit focuses on the diversity of ethnicity, architecture and nature in Iran, Elahi says. “The main point of this exhibit is to show a different side of Iran,” she says.

If you grew up as a craft-loving kid, then finger knitting probably reminds you of middle school and summer camp crafts. The process is every bit as easy as you remember (no worries if you need a refresher course, the sources ahead offer plenty), but the projects have gotten a tad more sophisticated. Put down the needles, pick up some fabric yarn, and you'll have a finished project in under two hours. READ MORE »

There are several contenders for Germany's most famous market, but Nuremberg usually takes the lead. Instead of mass-produced goods, you'll find locally sourced food and crafts, including the famous prune men (small dolls created out of dried fruits). Be sure to sample the Nuremberg sausage, which is unlike any of the others. Passau and Regensburg are smaller cities, so their markets are a fraction of the size of Nuremberg's; however, they still have plenty to offer. Passau is known for glasswork, so hand-blown ornaments are abundant. Regensburg hosts a Christmas Market within the palace walls of Thurn and Taxis. Its name translates into "Romantic Christmas Market" and romantic it is indeed. Picture fire pits, caroling, lightshows and a palace that looks like it should be in a Disney movie. To round out the list, Vienna offers several markets, but the two that stand out are the Christmas market at Schönbrunn Palace and the Wiener Rathausplatz market in front of City Hall.

Everybody is really positive and it’s very intimate. You can walk the whole course within 30 minutes. You can even walk into the driver area to see the cars up close and speak with the drivers. And if you want to see other things you can visit our vintage boat harbor, where you can see many old ships and boats like Riva, Bösch, or Chris Crafts. It really is a great time.
