How To Create A Fairy Garden

Pictured above:  Fairy Garden created by Ashcombes VAV!/August 25, 2014 It's time to create a magical, mystical, miniature fairy garden. Make it a place where Fairies can enjoy all the delightful moments in life, along with room to frolic in the meadow. First things first...fairies are nimble, pert, and small, so begin by thinking small. Next, you'll want to gather together a small container such as a box or basket, terrarium; an assortment of small plants that will please any fairy sensibility; and small ornaments and treasures to complete the fairies' playland. Arrange your amassed collection of plants and ornaments to form a natural landscape especially suited for fairies in mind. Remember that any fairy worthy of being called a fairy  always possesses a unique and extraordinary style!  So, let your imagination run rampant as you create walkways and secret nooks where fairies may nestle.

Doing It Right: Guardians of the Galaxy

   Pictured above:  Guardians of the Galaxy VAV!/August 23, 2014/Contributed by Stars in Her Eye Bringing superheroes to life is more than just getting the rights to vintage comic material and slapping it on ten big screens. Studios have had to walk the tight rope between tacky and tasteful when bringing superheroes to life. Movie and TV adaptions run the gambit from campy (the Adam West Batman) to thrilling (X-Men) to just plain sucky (the poor Hulk movies). Studios find success often with typical characters that have become mainstream (Batman, Superman), while also bringing lesser known characters into the everyday media fold (Iron Man). The latest trend? Ensemble movies.

 

Kotex - The First Successful Feminine Hygiene Product

Pictured above: Ad from Ladies' Home Journal 1940 via Duke Library/http://library.duke.edu/ VAV!/August 27, 2013 Hallelujah and HELLO!The first Kotex feminine hygiene products were made of celucotton, a material originally developed by Kimberly-Clark Corporation and used for surgical bandages during the First World War. Army nurses repurposed the ultra-absorbent bandages as menstrual pads and a  product was born!  Kimberly Clark then created the Cellucotton Products Company and launched Kotex  (K)Otton-like (TEX)ture! The initial  Kotex ads ran in 1921 in the Ladies' Home Journal and the Good Housekeeping magazine.  Readers of the Ladie's Home Journal were encouraged to call upon a Kimberly-Clark staff nurse, Ellen J. Buckland (also a brand ambassador), for advice and comments on the product.

 

Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Pictured above:  Pebble Beach Concours dElegance/Contributed by Screen GrabĀ© VAV!/August 19, 2014 The  Pebble Beach Concours dElegance, recognized as the world's premier celebration of the automobile, was founded on November 5, 1950 in Pebble Beach, California in conjunction with the first Pebble Beach Road Race sponsored by the Sports Car Club of America.. The race was won by Phil Hill while driving a Jaguar XK120.  Best of Show at the Concours went to a 1950 Edwards R-26 Special Sport Roadster owned by its creator, Sterling Edwards. Only the most exquisite and rare automobiles are invited to appear on the legendary eighteenth fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links each year, and connoisseurs of art and technology congregate to see them.  Today, from a dynamic combination of early cars and the latest debuts, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance (translated from French as the gathering of prestigious cars)  is among the most magnificent road-going and mind blowing art in the world with something to offer every auto enthusiast.
