Jen and Shawn's Quilt.  Long time to complete this.  They were married over 5 years ago. Rings were done for the wedding but I decided to add the hand-appliquéd border.  I love piecing but hand stitching - not so much.  So I only stitched when I was in the mood in order to be sure each stitch held love. I used patterns by Judy Niemeyer, Kathy Delaney, Margaret Docherty and Four Corners. The pansy bouquets each hold 18 pansies. A big thank you to Dianne Gale for doing the long arm quilting! by ora

I just made these  Doll boots (for 18 inch doll or AG) and it only took me about 3 minutes.  I purchased the tiny stocking from Hobby Lobby - tag say's 87 cents but with 66% off I only paid 58 cents each.  I used foam with adhesive backing (left over from when I made the sandals. I used the template I used for the soles of the sandals.  No sewing needed. by natasha

The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.

The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.

They have hundreds of poisonous tentacles that it used to catch passing by fish. it then slowly drags in it’s prey and eats it. by YTG

this is the earring/headband holder I made a few years ago. All I did was find a picture frame that I liked {I found a vintage inspired one at marshalls}, took out the glass and then staple gunned chicken wire to the back of the frame. {you have to cut the chicken wire to the specific measurments for your frame first} After I did that I gave a quick coat of vintage cream color to the frame and took some sandpaper and just kinda scratched up the frame a little to make it look worn, after that I took 2 strands of silk cream ribbon, about 12 inches long each -- double stranded them and made a pretty way for it to be hung, rather than just hanging on the wall; then I started hanging all of my dangly earrings in the wire, along with my headbands! There is quite a few more earrings in there now, compared to when this picture was taken though.. I love it! by queen

There is nothing more true than this statement! I know that if I never took the chance I did over a year ago, I would not be where I am today. I am so proud of that major step I took to better myself. Sure I doubted the whole challenge, but I felt like I had no other choice. My health was on a steady decline and I didn't even have enough energy to be there with my family. I was always tired and made excuse after excuse of why I had no time to take care of my health. by bleu.

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor"  But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low  The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:  Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ...... . Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married.  Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!"  Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof... Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs."  There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.  The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold.  In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat.  Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.  Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.  Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.  England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer.  And that's the truth....Now, whoever said History was boring by NoelleGarcia

"(Annie Sloan paints DIY info) I painted Paris Gray over gold frames and let them dry really good. I sanded them with a wet rag and then I used a coat of clear wax and then a coat of dark wax. The trick that I learned from Stacey about taking off the dark wax with clear wax made for a beautiful finish. After I coated the dark wax really good, I took an old t shirt and dabbed some clear wax on it, rubbed over the dark wax, taking off all the excess. The result was amazing. by VanillaChic-c

Wearable magic! Write your wish on a piece of paper, put it in the scroll and wear until your wish comes true.  The scrolls are made of leather, and often they are finished with (silver) beads. Each wish scroll comes on an adjustable cord, so you can determine yourself how high or low you wear it. It will become darker and shiny from the oils of your skin.    Every wish scroll is handmade and truly unique. The design is 100% mine. I got inspired by the description of “Ethiopian wish scrolls” some 8-10 years ago when studying for my BA bookbinding degree. Five years ago I made the first scroll (see below), as I imagined it should look like. Since then there have come many more, in different shapes and colours, and the new owners give happy reports of wishes coming true. Here at home we also have two content wish scroll wearers, yours truly and her partner. by christine
