Sansa Stark’s actress adopted her real-life direwolf
In Game of Thrones, Sansa Stark’s dire wolf Lady met an untimely end as a sacrifice to mollify the queen’s anger after Arya’s dire wolf Nymeria bit Prince Joffrey (and then ran away). In real life, however, Lady’s doing much better — especially after actress Sophie Turner adopted the Mahlek Northern Inuit Dog who played her.
In between her hectic filming schedule, Sophie likes nothing more than to relax at home with her family and pet dog Zunni, who the family adopted from the series. She adds: “Growing up I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one. We kind of fell in love with my character’s dire wolf, Lady, on set.
“We knew Lady died and they wanted to re-home her. My mum persuaded them to let us adopt her.” via i09
THIS MAKES ME SO FUCKING HAPPY!!!
Growing a Kitchen Garden in a Light Fixture
A landscape designer and a product designer combined creative forces to bring the garden into the kitchen. A collaboration that resulted in Klorofyll, a suspended light fixture that doubles as a hanging kitchen garden for growing aromatic herbs.
Both functional and decorative, Klorofyll is part of the trend for growing one’s own, even if it’s just a few herbs, and also reflects consumer interest in personalization–users can decide how to use the product in a way that fits their tastes.
Klorofyll’s 360° rotating cylinder contains six openings for removable planters, and two LED light rings which provide illumination, its electric wiring contained within the suspension cable and other technical parts inside one end of the module.
As a pendant light, it provides functional lighting for the kitchen work space and at the same time enables cooks to snip culinary herbs from directly overhead. A gentle spin rotates the cylinder on its axis to reveal a different herb pot. If ambient light is inadequate for healthy plant growth, Klorofyll replicates photosynthesis with the LED lights within its built-in light elements. Pretty cool…now I want one.
