Do remember our post about the vintage watering can that was turned into a shower fixture? (It’s here, if you want to check it out.) The blog — The Cozy Old Farmhouse — that shared that repurposing idea also features these lights made from trash can lids and Mason jars. Something like this could be a DIY project for many of us.  What do you think of this creative reuse? by lynda

The first Detroit Zoo was established in 1883 on Michigan Avenue across the street from the current site of Tiger Stadium when a circus went broke. Luther Beecher, a leading Detroit citizen and capitalist, financed the purchase of the circus animals and built this building to display the collection. It was called the Detroit Zoological Garden. The zoo closed the following year after financial problems and the building was turned into a horse by nanette

Waterfall that turns red : Cameron Falls, Alberta, Canada A lucky photographer captured the image of a lifetime - shooting the incredibly rare moment a waterfall turned tomato soup red. The phenomenom was caused by the high levels of rain washing a red coloured sediment called argolite from the rocks and into the water. by wilma

Metatron's Cube. We read in the Bible that Enoch was the sixth patriarch after Adam and that he lived 365 years (the number of days in a solar year on earth) before he was transported to heaven. Kabbalistic legend tells us that he was transmuted into Archangel Metatron, as in Metatron's Cube. That is, Enoch is the 7th Patriarch (as in 7 spheres) and is associated with the sun; and Metatron's Cube is Enoch's Cube. by dominique

This is a backyard that is simple, but nicely landscaped with a patio, lawn area, and planting beds. Everything here is in scale and not overcrowded, not too much. Overdoing it in a garden is something that is easy to forget - until we are slogging around in the backyard with a bobcat and wondering where that big hole came from - not that anything like that has ever happened around here! ~EBM by louellaa

A butterfly-friendly fountain. Multitiered raised beds and house walls protect this courtyard from breezes. The fountain in the center provides butterflies with a necessary supply of water. (After spilling down the column, it moistens the rocks below before disappearing underground; siphoning water from a puddle beneath wet rocks is a butterfly's preferred way to drink.)

According to Roman legend, Bacchus, the god of wine, had been insulted by a mortal, and vowed that he would unleash his sacred tigers on the next mortal he passed.  That mortal was a maiden named Amethysta. In order to protect her from Bacchus’ tigers, the  goddess Diana turned her into a quartz statue.  Upon seeing this, Bacchus was so remorseful that he wept tears of wine over the maiden. The grapes from the wine turned the statue of Amethysta by Divonsir Borges

Lilith, said to be Adam's first wife. Some writings say that she was sexually dominant and wanted to be on top during sex. She was banished and punished for this and turned into a demon. She was feared and accused of killing new born babies, this is where the mobile above a babies crib comes from, it was to protect them from Lilith. by NichelleW
