moss carpet

They say walking on fresh grass increases your blood circulation. The Moss Carpet looks at getting the grass to your feet, and that too in your loo! Made from imputrescible foam called plastazote, the mat includes ball moss, island moss and forest moss. The humidity of the bathroom ensures that the mosses thrive. And that’s why you need to place it there and not anywhere else.

cuckoo


What we have here is a cute little watch. It is flexible rubber, digital, and is basically an arm-cuckoo clock. Hannes Grebin has this to say about his watch: Nooka Cuckoo is a watch concept which puts an end to the many failed attempts to translate analog chronographic displays into the digital age - it is German “Gemutlichkeit” for the wrist, literally brought to you from a plastic, candy-coloured Black Forest.

grass

Grass squares are designed to give a natural touch to the office or home by placing them freely or according to feng-shui. Unlike ordinary flowers, Grass is completely natural, a piece of earth, that grows indoors with minimal care.
Inspired by Frank loyed Wright’s Fallingwater and the attempt to combine architecture and nature, the entire project is made from recycled materials and tries to merge the home with the outdoors.
The packages have an air opening to gain longer shelf live for the product.
Project was made at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Israel, 2009.

pamela love

Cadavers have always fascinated Pamela Love. The daughter of an orthopedic surgeon and the granddaughter of a dentist, the jewelry designer's bizarre childhood fixations—"I've always loved bones and teeth"—seem inevitable. Today, Love has parlayed her forensic interests (which, beyond the skeletal, include the zodiac and taro) into an eponymous jewelry line that fuses the whimsical with the raw. Love admits to also drawing heavily from the great outdoors. "I'm obsessed with nature and science," she says. As a result, the line is filled with wildlife references: a raven skull necklace, a fanciful talon cuff, and a bejeweled crab claw ring are among Love's favorite designs. "I like pieces that are both rock-and-roll but still earthy," she says.

how to care for an orchid

Apartment Therapy has published a post about orchid treating, I love orchid, so I'll report the post:
Of course all species of orchids are different, but here's some general advice for the easier to grow indoor types, such as Lady's Slippers, Cattleya, and Moth (Phalaenopsis and Doritis) Orchids.
Light:
In general, orchids thrive on bright, indirect light. At home, the best position for the plants would be near an East, West, or shaded South-facing window. If the foliage becomes dark green and limp (leaves should stand semi-erect), this is a good indication the plant isn't receiving enough light.
Temperature:
Mature orchids like a fluctuation of about 15 degrees between night and day, with nights around 60-65º F and days in the 75-85º F range.
Water: Plants should seldom dry out between watering. Check often to see if the soil is damp, and water about twice a week.
Fertilize:
A growing orchid requires a mix of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, provided by regular fertilizing. Go for a balanced version (a fertilizer with "10-10-10" or some other similar ratio on the front) and use a weak dose with water about once a week.
Potting:
In general, orchids do best when their roots are confined in a tight container. Repot once every year or two when soil has almost completely broken down, using a well-drained but water-retaining mix. Do so in the Spring, after the main flowering season has ended.
