DIY Furniture - This delightful Drops pouf is a chair made of an inner tube covered with recycled upholstery material. It was inspired by the process behind making tassels (bunching together lots of strips of leftover fabric) and introduces elements of color and fun into the user’s everyday life. I love inner tubes,they should be for fun,on the water,or using as couches,in fun,not popped.
CHAIRS = inner tubes wrapped in fabric. so fun for a kid's room or playroom, classroom, for extra movie night seats, or for extra outdoor seats.

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.

“Tree Drawings. A series of drawings produced using drawing implements attached to the tips of tree branches, the wind’s effects on the tree, recorded on paper. Like signatures each drawing reveals the different qualities and characteristics of each tree.” - Tim Knowles
'In his “Tree Art” project at Rokeby Gallery, Tim Knowles only makes use of the wind as his guide. He creates a large scale tree drawing where multiple pens are tied to the tips of tree branches. As the tree sways in the wind the pens draw onto a panel of paper below.' - Awwwesome..

DIY Reading lamp that is easy on the eyes ~ It is a gallon milk jug filled with water with a headlamp pointing into the water... ambient light for camping or as night light. Good idea x
Great idea for camping or power outages. Original pinner wrote: I have used candles, headlamps, and at least one portable camping light to provide lighting for reading and writing at night in camp. A drawback of all those tools is the glare of the lamp. By contrast, this simple system is easy on the eyes. It is a gallon milk jug filled with water with a headlamp pointing into the water.
Camping Tip: 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.
