Fantastic Finds Fridays.

This week I discovered that a brooch might be something I want to add to my wardrobe, I need to learn how to knit (or make a wind powered machine that’ll do it for me, and oil spills are something we need to work harder to prevent.

TUTORIALS

CraftZine.com has a great tutorial on how to make a Garden Tool Caddy. It can also be used as a knee protector when you are getting down and dirty in the garden!

Holidash.com shows us how to make a flower brooch for our wonderful mom’s just in time for Mother’s Day.  I think this is a perfect example of a tutorial that can easily be transformed into a creative reuse project.  Just use old scraps of fabric as petals and you’ll make a wonderfully colorful brooch.

FOOD

You would fill up an apartment quickly, but planetgreen.com says there are 66 things you can grow in containers! A great deal of them are goodies to eat.  Yum.

NEWS

Deepwater Horizon oil spill clean up continues. Clean up could be a matter of weeks.  Robots have been sent to try and plug the leak that is causing 42,000 gallons of oil to seep into the ocean daily.  And, this week it stretched all the way to the Mississippi River.

What do you think is the most polluted city in the U.S.? See if you are right HERE.

AND THE COOLEST THING!!!

A wind powered knitting machine. Who thinks of this stuff?  I love them (:
