Lots of trial and error, figuring things out as we went along, and, in the case of getting the baskets to hang straight, plenty of "colorful metaphors."

This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

It’s very easy to make, use of turning a light bulb into an oil burner, terrarium and many another interesting things. Used light bulbs, typically destined for the trash bin, could be the setting for an adorable miniature terrarium, practically any clear glass container can contain a tiny greenhouse, providing humidity and warmth to plants.
