Tufted Headboard (DIY) I’ve made a couple of diamond-tufted headboards now (Joanna’s was only my second though) and I feel like I have a pretty good sense of the easiest DIY approach now.

Gone are the days when I spend hours mapping out and drilling holes in plywood! I’ve been using pegboard and it is PERFECT for these headboard projects. Cheap, lightweight and sturdy enough.

Although umbrella might seem like a common, everyday item that has been there for ages, the very first working and folding umbrella was made only in 1969 by Bradford E. Phillips.

Lifestyle We will never tire of the positive effects of nature. Its calming, soothing and inspiring influence will never go out of style. The more we rush, the more time we spend indoors staring at our screens and devices, the more urban our lifestyles become, the more we crave and need time away from it all. FieldCandy Tents Designed To Stand Out FieldCandy tents do not give you camouflage protection in the natural setting, nor do they help you blend in with the rest of the crowd at the campsite. FieldCandy tents are designed to stand out. When we saw the first images of these limited-edition designer tents with their cool flysheets, we had to really stop and think. Is it true that no-one else has manufactured these types of tents for sale before?

A Wilting Dreamscape That You Can Walk Inside Most sensible people know that there are big changes going on in our world--changes in the climate, in the economy, in society at large and how it’s structured--but it can be hard to really internalize those changes when you’re just reading about them in a newspaper. Sometimes, things need to be experienced--to be felt--to be understood. Which means that sometimes, you just have to let people walk into a big melty room and let them figure out what it means for themselves. That’s one way to understand Le Cercle Fermé, an installation by artists Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil that served as Luxembourg’s entry in last year’s Venice Biennale. The artists took a sort of blandly familiar space--wood floors, white walls with some nice molding--and turned it into a drooping, dripping dreamscape, equal parts Dali and Escher.
