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.

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.
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...
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!
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

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.
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!
For My Someday Home
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.
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.
Three Chimneys, Skye. Award winning restaurant. This used to belong to my grandfather and it was a greengrocers many years ago
The "Kongetinn" tableware was designed 1,000 years ago. It is a myth that the Viking period was nothing but violence. Viking kings surrounded themselves with artisans and took pride in their own artistic skills. King Olav the Holy and his men gave their lives for Christianity at the battle of Stiklestad in 1030. He was declared a saint, the only Viking king so honored, thus the inspiration for the "Kongetinn" pattern.
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

IRON BRAID Get Back Whip Black White 36 Inches Sold Each - 1009-36-BLACK-WHITEYou need to create every advantage you can nowadays to avoid being run over,years ago motorcycles were the only vehicles with the headlight on all the time and people noticed us,now almost every vehicle made comes with daytime running lights. When you have a long whip from IronBraid hanging from your lever blowing in the breeze you attract attention and catch the eye of other drivers. The Get Back Whips will fan out while riding and will not slap the rider or passenger. All Get Back Whips are HandBraided over a rope core and attached directly to a Quick Release aka,Panic Snap it can be attached to either the brake or clutch lever. With a quick downward pull,the whip can be released quickly in case of an emergency. The panic snap is commonly used in the horse field to release an out of control horse. All whips are made from the same full grain upholstery leather used in all IronBraid products. Today the whips are used for aesthetic reasons only but like most things they have a history of their own. Back in the day,these leather whips were usually made with the 1 bike club colors,besides showing off their club colors the whips could be quickly released and used in case of emergency to swing at anything that was causing a threat to the biker,hence the name Get Back Whip.Note: Will not fit around some levers that have leather covers installed If purchasing our braided levers and you want a whip to hang off the end,let us know and we can braid the levers short of the ball end so the quick release will fit around the leather and the lever. If you do not need the quick release part of the snap we have other snaps that we can use to make a whip for you,they come off but not with the quick pull.
