A good idea for you to motivate you children to build a tent made of sheets in their living room. It definitely reminds me of my childhood when I see the article. Using sheets from my parent and use my experimental mind to create a private shelter that protect my little world from the outside world. Of course there is nothing wrong to let your child having tents in their bedroom as long as the materials used are made of something easy to make and don’t make too much mess inside the room. Moreover, this sheet tent can be a very good bedroom decoration.

A lil bit of info about Timothy Karpinski

In the picture, you can see the image of tent created by Timothy J. Karpinski from Portland, USA. He made this tent to participate in milepost 5 show, a show that exhibit interesting and creative creations by young artists. Mr. Kapinski is known for creating artistic paintings and books related to childhood images and memories. Visit his gallery and witness his works. A new talented artist that has his own artistic “master piece” for us to enjoy….

Gardyn, that’s the name of the song that really captured my attention when I accidentally found the clip in Youtube. The song is a little mother’s day present from a son to her mother. The music elements were taken from “real world” sounds that he collected from their garden. He collected real world vocal samples, in the same time he filmed different scenes in the garden (including interview scene with her mother) to make the video.

He mixed all of this and formed it into a very blissful and natural clip. Very inspiring video for all gardening lovers…To watch the video clic here

As I already posted in my previous article Flower lover named Bumblebee the existence of bees in wildlife is in serious danger. In the UK, the Sunday Telegraph has launched a serious campaign called “Bring Back Bees”. The goal is to preserve the bee’s natural habitat that has been seriously damaged due to climate change, the threat from parasites and the increase of urbanization that reduce bee’s natural habitat.

Yesterday, 5 burglars entered my neighbor’s house through the front door while they went to the nearest supermarket to buy some stuff. At that time I was not at home as well, but I was shocked to hear the news and fell really sorry for them. They lost almost all of their most precious belongings like TV, PC, Radio, Camera canon etc. Fortunately all of his stuff are insured, can you imagine if they were not? The crazy thing is, this burglars only needed 5 minutes for the whole operation.

We always have stretch marks/wounds in our knee each time we do our gardening stuff. For planting flowers or plants, sometime we need to bend our knees to the soil and it could force our knee to be dirty and have black marks after several occasions.

Maybe some of you have used this tool but for those who haven’t, try to use this simple and not expensive “garden kneeler seat”. It has a neoprene rubber pad that allows user’s knees to be protected and it also can be used as a comfortable seat as it can be turned upside down.

Other advantage, extremely light and easy to move around, but still provide firm grip for posing your knee or for sitting. It is also water proof and washable and with only 17-20 £ you can use it for many years.

Available in Amazon

The first of its kind, a hanging barbecue for garden party ! Sounds crazy but I just made this discovery just couple of minutes ago (again thanks to Internet).

The Sigmafocus can be attached to any kind of wall, equipped with a flip and folds thick steel fire bowl to make it easier to use. You don’t need to drag your old charcoal barbecue that you normally hide in your garage or your garden storage. Just prepare the food, enough charcoal and that’s it.. Moreover, this “well thought off-equipment” has an ash pan that can be used several times.

The idea came from Focus, a France- based fireplace Maker Company. Well known for making “state of the art” futuristic-shape fireplaces. Focus is very popular in Australia. 

The summer is here, if you want to organize a barbecue party with your friends or family..give this gadget a try people!!
