Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot ( – I ran across an article from the Audubon Society which reminded me that I keep meaning to share something with you all. It’s spring which means the Sandhill Cranes have hatched and are out and about. I hope you enjoy learning about these majestic birds as much as we enjoy watching them!

JayDee ( – I have often thought about creating a greenhouse using salvaged windows and doors. I think it would be a perfect place to start my annuals, pot new plants, and even just go there to hang out and relax. This week I spotted an article about someone who created a similar structure, but she used salvaged stained glassed windows! Here’s her “Stained Glass Cabin in the Woods“. It’s absolutely beautiful!

Laurie ( – The PBS show The Victory Garden introduced me to the rose rustlers from the Antique Rose Emporium, who forage for sturdy roses that can flourish without the pampering roses often need. That’s my kind of rose. You can read their story and see their mail-order inventory of roses old and new here.

Linda ( –  A window to the future of communication. The Portals Project allows two people or group of people in different parts of the world to have a face to face conversation. The key – a gold shipping container and video conferencing software developed by Shared Studios, a SF based art, design and technology based collective. Can teleporting be far away?

Mary Ellen ( – Having just been in my best attempt at steampunk attire, I was blown away by Sue Beatrice’s sculptures using watch parts.

Tina ( – Found this fun list called “Best Damn Thing In Every State”.  I live in Illinois and apparently they think Lake Shore Drive is the best thing.  Hmmm.  See what they found for your state!

Pam ( – I worked on estate sales all week so had no time to surf. Never fear, I’ll be back.

  1. Tina, I have to agree with your pick this week. Pacific Coast Highway is by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. And In-n-Out Burger, absolutely delicious! Great find!
