Hats off to these six Syrian artists who have made it into the Guinness Book of World Records – and given a Damascus primary school something to be proud of. They’ve fashioned the world’s largest mural made from scrap. Why? “Damascus is wounded and sad… and creating something beautiful from rubbish means that we can rebuild despite the destruction.” Read the article, via BuzzFeed: http://uni.cf/1kD8AgZ
LOOK AT HIM HE IS THE TEA
Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.
Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.

ابن الفارض — سقتني حميَّا الحبِّ راحة َ مقلتي
خلعتُ عذاري واعتذاري لابسَ الـ

وخلعُ عذاري فيكِ فرضى وإنْ أبى اقـ
