BLOW ME OVER WITH A FEATHER
My mouth hung open in amazement as I looked at the found feather art made by artist Chris Maynard.
He finds feathers and then cuts out intricate shapes to create a scene. No words, people. I have no words for how awesome this is. See more of his work in this This is Colossal article. You can also visit Maynard’s Instagram account here.

The humble office cubicle has never looked better!
CLEVER MURPHY BED SOLUTION
Instead of the Murphy bed door folding down in this home, it opens to the side. This creates a “wall” to give guests at least an illusion of privacy in an otherwise open space. Clever, right?
ALGAE FOR LIFE
Scientists have managed to keep tadpoles alive without oxygen by injecting algae into the tadpole’s heart. They then shone a light on the tadpole and by means of photosynthesis, oxygen was created which brought nerve cells back to life.
This story gave us a ton to muse about at the dinner table!

ISN’T THAT THE TRUTH
“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” – Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
