Peculiar Treasures: Quick Bits

By Kellie Purcill

Welcome to another week of Peculiar Treasures, where we have a heart fix being knit, comedic award finalist animal pics, LDS women bloggers sharing their “Why I’m voting this way” gist, a democracy-vs-dictatorship church-vs-voting blitz, and a smashed avocado breakfast snit.

First up, Bolivian traditional weaving is used to repair holes in thousands of children’s hearts – and it’s a lifetime fix.

There seems to be no way to avoid the US Presidential Election – here are 7 LDS women bloggers discussing the whys behind their voting choice this election, and a consideration of the similarities (and vast differences) between the election, politics and how the Church is constituted and governed.

Meanwhile in Australia, having mashed avocado on toast for breakfast has become a political argument, and we are just a week from finding out which finalist will win the Comedy Wildlife Photography Award for 2016.
