Wild Life: Dispatches from a Childhood of Baboons and Button-Downs

Wild Life: Dispatches from a Childhood of Baboons

Keena Roberts split her adolescence between the wilds of an island camp in Botswana and the even more treacherous halls of an elite Philadelphia private school. In Africa, she slept in a tent, cooked over a campfire, and lived each day alongside the baboon colony her parents were studying. She could wield a spear as easily as a pencil, and it wasn't unusual to be chased by lions or elephants on any given day. But for the months of the year when her family lived in the United States, this brave kid from the bush was cowed by the far more treacherous landscape of the preppy, private school social hierarchy.Most girls Keena's age didn't spend their days changing truck tires, baking their own bread, or running from elephants as they tried to do their schoolwork. They also didn't carve bird whistles from palm nuts or nearly knock themselves unconscious trying to make homemade palm wine. But Keena's parents were famous primatologists who shuttled her and her sister between Philadelphia and Botswana every six months. Dreamer, reader, and adventurer, she was always far more comfortable avoiding lions and hippopotamuses than she was dealing with spoiled middle-school field hockey players. In Keena's funny, tender memoir, Wild Life, Africa bleeds into America and vice versa, each culture a...

Bear Paw Print Necklace Repurposed Button Wildlife Pendant Animal Stainless Steel Ball Chain

Bear Paw Print Necklace Repurposed Button Wildlife Pendant

I crafted this wolf necklace charm from a pewter-plated button. The image is an imprinted, darkened bear paw print or footprint and is quite eye catching. The pewter-plated button has a very nice silver-color and matte finish. Notice how a hint of the copper base shows through adding to the rustic nature of the piece. After removing the shank from the back of the button and smoothing out any rough edges, I drilled a hole, and inserted a sturdy metal ring. The pendant was suspended from a stainless steel ball chain. The button hangs 1 1/8 inches (29mm) from a 30 inch (76.2cm) stainless steel ball chain. The chain can be shortened upon request.

Verena Street, 2 Pound Flavored Ground Coffee, Mississippi Grogg, Medium Roast, Rainforest Alliance Certified Arabica Coffee

Verena Street, 2 Pound Flavored Ground Coffee, Mississippi

Using the same high-grade specialty coffee beans as in our regular blends, this medium roast flavored coffee is a warm and inviting blend of butterscotch, caramel and hazelnut flavoring. Most flavored coffees utilize cheap and unremarkable coffee beans masked by potent flavoring additives, assuming that flavored coffee drinkers do not want to taste any actual coffee in their coffee! We take a different approach by utilizing the highest grade premium Arabica coffee beans you will find in a flavored coffee. This creates a rich and robust coffee flavor that complements our unique and proprietary flavorings perfectly. This is why many have touted our flavored coffees as being one-of-a-kind and having a strong and charismatic flavor without being too sweet or overpowering. Our coffee beans are freshly roasted in small batches with the utmost care and attention to a unique roast profile for each type of coffee origin. This means that you will receive high quality coffee fresher than anything you can get your hands on! We also purchase our beans from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Whether you choose our whole bean coffee or ground coffee, you will experience an incredibly fresh roast profile with an aromatic coffee smell and a rich but smooth flavor that is not bitter. This create...
