Assorted and Sundry

Cat5 Macrame Plant Hanger (via Make Blog) — It’s made from recycled ethernet cable!

Dewey Donation 2008 Book Drive – Anyone who loves books can relate to the sense of wonder and hope they can create in children’s lives…. and adult lives too of course. Every year the Dewey Donation System chooses a library in need and provides lists and purchase options for books and other supplies desperately needed. You can even choose specific books that you loved growing up. The drive is supporting two libraries this year!

Shutter Sisters Get Dirty Contest – The new female-centric photography blog is having a photo contest with the topic “getting dirty.” Given how much experience gardeners have with the subject of dirt and being in or around it I’d bet that any one of you could walk away with the “outdoor activities” category without breaking a sweat!

Love Carrots (via Garden Monkey) – Because I am not too mature or above having a good laugh over phallic vegetables… or cacti.
