With string lights readily available everywhere from 6-week only holiday emporiums to the corner gas station, grab a few to create this deceptively simple but elegant wine bottle light. The trick lies in the technology - a 1/2" drill bit made for drilling into glass, and, of course, the proper safety gear, just in case.
How fascinating..."A group of Israeli environmentalists has launched an Internet campaign encouraging Jews around the world to light at least one fewer candle this Hannukah.
The effort, aimed at curbing climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions, has been criticized by some Jewish leaders, who say the candles play a sacred role in the Hanukkah observance.
The founders of the Green Hanukkia campaign say each candle burning all the way down...
Rikkianne from Chakra Pennywhistle has a fine idea, indeed: wrap your handmade gifts in a paper a bit more suitable to their contents - thrifted sewing patterns.
Don't worry - these aren't the vintage patterns featuring classic designs from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s... if your thrift store features those, you, my friend, are in luck and should buy them all up quickly.

Artist Ran Hwang uses 'materials related to the fashion industry' to create her expansive wall installations. As you can imagine, their assembly takes vast amounts of patience, but Ran uses the process as a meditative practice that brings her 'inner peace'.
Vick's has been making it's mentholated topical ointment - VapoRub - since 1905, and it's covered the chests and ticklied the nostrils of North America ever since.
Traditional gift wrapping technique places this gift in tissue paper, then a box, then paper around the box, then tape to secure it, a ribbon for some extra fun, then a bow, a gift tag to determine the recipient, and sometimes, even an extra bauble or ornament dangling from the finished product.
This year - try something else, like these folded mini-gift parcels. Yoke Bakery has created a fully prepped option from a...
When people hear the words 'French Country' they oftentimes think of a room overwrought with floral fabrics and wood with curvy arms and legs, leftovers from Louis XIV. (Two things that make me regurgitate a little bit, actually.) That mental image is far and gone from these pictures, however. This home located in the French countryside has a rough, minimal interior which lets it character speak for itself. It's the kind of French Country I...
