Re-purposing large dumpsters as pools: Dumpster Diving. I kinda want one: either from a dumpster or shipping container. Seems like a great way to reuse/reduce/recycle… refresh!

Normally the idea of making your own clock is far too “crafty” for my liking. But this mid-century-inspired clock {from the Indianapolis Star} is fairly impressive and almost makes me want to get out the glue gun:

Glass version of Solo Cup, Part II

7:55 pm | writes:

Awhile back, I wrote about a great glass version of the beloved plastic Solo cup. That version is beautiful and costs $34. Now, CB2 offers a collection of 2 sizes that are both beautiful and priced between $2-4 each. I absolutely love these. And, while you’re shopping at CB2, pick up some of their super-thin walled 22 oz. stack barware –a seeming take on the famous Guinness pint glass {stacks without leaving watermarks that would disturb the pour of that fine stout} On sale at just $2 a piece.
