Every year, the planet loses nearly a third of its food—a staggering 1.4 billion tons. That’s according to a 2011 United Nations study that assessed food networks in 152 countries. The researchers’ results reveal where in the food-supply chain farmers, engineers, and consumers might more effectively get comestibles into mouths.
Born in the small city of Lviv in western Ukraine, photographer Oleg Oprisсo worked as an operator at a photo lab from the age of 16. At age 18, he moved to Kiev, where he began his professional photography career. At age 23, he changed from digital capture to film.
Oprisсo is known for his beautiful and very inspired stagging: “Each of my photos is inspired by a scene from real life. That is the perfect source of inspiration for me as there is so much beauty to it. Perhaps today on your way to work, when you were observing the world around you, that was the scene to inspire my next photograph. Of course there are my own changes that I add to the reality, such as characters, props, location, and light… I am constantly involved in a search for inspiration and ideas.” (src. Seamless)

So where are we with mason jars? Are we over it yet?
I thought I was (over it) but this is a clever and easy way to put the things to use that isn’t a chandelier (eyeroll). As a fun little wall organizer in the bathroom, this upgrade is a great way to keep small things from cluttering the bath vanity counter. Meanwhile, mounting in the kitchen lifts your herb garden off the window sill. See the full how-to here via The DIY Playbook. -ts
I think about storage a lot. A LOT. Unfortunately, a closet isn’t a prerequisite for making a room a bedroom, so finding room for all your stuff requires some creativity. (Full disclosure: I have a closet and an at-capacity clothing rack in my apartment.) This DIY Ladder Wardrobe idea is smart and definitely has an old-apartment vibe. Plus, the tutorial makes for one sturdy piece!
