Love this for Earth Day - Such cool ideas on how to set up a natural play space for your kids in the backyard (part of a 4-part series) - bye, bye plastic slide, hello forts and logs!

An actual hobbit hole! Tiny houses, tree houses and forts are awesome… but when they are expertly and custom-made, they’re even better. I couldn’t do something like this in a million years!

Little shrine for garden.

    cool idea

Um, if we ever get a trampoline, we're definitely getting one of these!!!

I wish we had a willow tree! British artist Tim Knowles creates works independent of his own hand, using elaborate apparatus or time consuming practices. He tries to makes visible the invisible whether it is the wind as it moves branches with pens attached to them or the path drawn by the moons reflection on undulating water. All rely on the logic of cause and effect, as a map of time and a record of actions governed entirely by chance.

Take a gallon jug of water and wrap a head lamp around it and you get a soft, ambient light that is easy on the eyes. Perfect for camping :)
