When I was seven I relished any chance I could get to wear my black patent leather Mary Jane's. No event was too insignificant! Now I like to shuffle around my apartment in these knit slippers reminiscent of the classic style. Some historical perspective: Mary Jane was sister to Buster Brown, star of the early 20th century comic, Buster Brown.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust: A Haven for Elephants and Rhinos The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust: A Haven for Elephants and Rhinos Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. Founded in 1977 by Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honour of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation. The DSWT has remained true to its principles and ideals, remaining a sustainable and flexible organisation. Guided by experienced and dedicated Trustees and assisted by an Advisory Committee of proactive naturalists with a lifetime of wildlife and environmental experience, the Trust takes effective action and achieves long-lasting results.

Make a basket out of plastic bags!

Make a basket out of plastic bags!

sewing needles (sharps OR heavy duty will work best) white thread (I chose polyester for added strength) a thimble (I really recommend coin thimbles) plastic bags of all types - grocery bags are easiest, but you can mix and match. The thicker, more opaque bags will produce a thicker braid, while thin, more transparent bags will produce thinner ones. Try to get as many colors as you can - my basket is made almost entirely of white bags with very small amounts of color, and I think it would look even nicer with some full color bags mixed in.
DIY: Bean Bags DIY: Bean Bags Now before you go dismissing this DIY project because it’s a bean bag, let us quell your fears: having things for people to sit on the floor, even in a modern house, is totally a good idea. Whether you have kids or not is irrelevant. Sometimes you have a party and don’t have enough chairs for folks, or sometimes you host a board game night or movie night at your house. Throw pillows work. Floor cushions are better.
