    April showers bring May flowers, but only if your garden is properly set up first. It’s finally warm enough to get the garden going again, which also means trips back and forth to the home goods and stores for plants, trellises and bulbs and blooms. For those who want to see if their thumbs are green but don’t have much green space outdoors, check out our options for indoor gardening with grow lamps or fully-equipped herb gardens that can thrive right on your kitchen counter. For the traditional gardeners itching to pull on their gloves and get to digging, we...

  • Artist Adds ‘Star Wars’ To Discarded Paintings He Finds in Thrift Stores

    While many people may overlook old thrift store paintings, Dave (of Arrowhead Vintage & Goods) actually seeks them out to transform the outdated landscapes into surreal sci-fi scenes. He alters old, forgotten artworks by adding pop culture characters that seem to blend seamlessly within the painterly scenes. From the Iron Giant treading through a forest to Godzilla at the beach, Dave adds characters from a whole host of fantasy films. But there’s one particular movie franchise that seems to inspire the upcycling artist the most—Star Wars. Many of Dave’s altered paintings capture a strange, dystopian world where the Star Wars...

    The pods, which are made from wood and steel, were put in parks and other places, a spokesman for the city said. To shield the homeless from the wind and cold, the beds have been equipped with thermal insulation. They are also big enough for use by two individuals. There are no cameras, and when they are in use, sensors are triggered. Those behind the project, amid some delays, announced that they had eventually been rolled out just as the weather began to take a turn for the worse.
