Alberobello, Puglia, Italy [I traveled here just a few years ago, beautiful country and fascinating tradition of topping the structures with shaped stones to denote the number and age of their female children.]
43,000 Galaxies on a Map / the most complete map of our local universe to date. It took more that ten years to create, has 43,000 galaxies and extends out 380 million light years from the earth. The 3D coordinates of each galaxy was recorded so the raw data could potentially be used to build a realistic 3D model of the universe.
Starched fabric wall cover--this is is a trick used by Army Wives across the world to decorate their Quarters without painting, I used it in ours years ago in Germany!
Pack-Horse Bridge, a twin arched bridge which may have originated almost 800 years ago. One of the most photographed bridges in Lancashire, England, it crosses Wycoller Beck, and was the route the pack-horses took on their way from Yorkshire to Lancashire and back.

Yes I like the dreaded fruitcake – not that yucky stuff with the candied fruit in it – I hate that stuff. I came across a recipe years ago that used Pillsbury Date bread mix with candied fruit and…

The oldest bird of prey nest ever recorded, a 2500 year old falcon nest, has been discovered in Greenland. Three other nests, each over 1,000 years old, have also been found, one of which contains feathers from a bird that lived more than 600 years ago. Kurt Burnham of the University of Oxford: "To date, this is the longest continually used (and currently used) raptor nest ever documented."
I made these with my sons kindergarten class last year and let them using a sharpie write their name on it then I put the year on. Then they took them home for their parents to remember years from now how their penmanship looked in 2012 to the current time

-Thor talks to Tony about Angry Birds- The pigs took over their homes, stole their children, killed their women and used their men as slaves. You have to knock down their podiums, Thor, and save them from their tyranny.
14 years ago, Aaron Paul (Jesse from Breaking Bad) was a contestant on The Price Is Right. He made it to the Showcase Showdown and overbid.
We made it! Rope & wood shelves, Saw this and brought back memories of the one we made 33 years ago for our nursery. We placed baby quilts, blankets and stuffed animals on the shelves. The wood was painted yellow and only 4 shelves. We placed a knot in the rope under each wooden shelve to give it more character and it didnt hang this low to the floor..it was EASY...
Strawberry-Lemon Crepe Cake Recipe -Each year for my husband's birthday I make him a different lemon cake (a tradition started by his mother). A couple years ago I made a Lemon Crepe Cake and it was really good. This spring I added fresh strawberries and the cake was fabulous! I like to make the crepe batter and lemon curd the night before and assemble the next morning. —Lora Roth, Seneca, South Carolina
Szarlotka, otherwise known as Polish Apple Cake, is a dessert my paternal grandmother (babcia) used to make. Not only did my babcia make a delicious szarlotka, she was an amazing lady who was a big part of the Polish resistance against the Germans in WWII. Unfortunately she passed away many years ago and I never had a chance to get her recipe. Over time I’ve made several szarlotkas, experimenting to make one similar to what she made. I think babcia would be very proud of this one!
I took this pic @ the concert in Calgary couple years ago, kinda cool to find it on Pinterest!
Hike the 33-mile-long Chilkoot Trail which usually takes three to five days. It was one of two roads to Klondike and has become a "ghost trail" used a hundred years ago in the gold rush.
They took those cheap $1 table cloths, and attached them to a piece of round cardboard (just a box they cut with a box knife into a donut shape!)with clear packing tape, and used it to cover their canopy- the result was an awesome big top look that amazing! Cassi Selby
Every English teacher has experienced the frustration of introducing a writing skill, like how to write a thesis statement, over and over again without it "sticking." Three years ago, I began "flip...
We took a shallow translucent box and sprinkled some colored sand (of the type used to fill sand art bottles)on the bottom. We placed that box on one of our homemade light boxes. It was beautiful. Then we used our fingers to draw in the sand. The children loved it. They played over half an hour making designs on their own. We tried two different colors.
Some of our best and favorite engagement photos from our future wedding photographers. We took our pictures on the University of Guelph campus where we met 7 years ago. They captured our love so perfectly with their unique poses and ideas; I can’t wait for our wedding in October. It was a perfect fall day for our pictures.

One year anniversary gift I made for my boyfriend. I took a canvas board and stretched burlap fabric over it. Sprayed the burlap with iced tea to give it an aged look and then glued pictures of us to it using Modge Podge!

Shame to see these clowns destroy the old Mooneyes Dragster - some guys in Japan bought the name and store years ago and I'm sure Dean Moon is rolling over in his grave
Been dying to do this! It's just the same circle traced over and over and painted in. They used to sell this at world market a year ago.
I was probably one of the first ones to purchase the Trim Healthy Mama book when it came out and I can’t believe that was over 2 years ago! Over those two years I have been amazed at the progress I have made but have to admit there have been times of falling off plan […]
