Emily Thibodeaux Meyer and Andy Meyer’s double shotgun in New Orleans’ Mid-City neighborhood embraces the city’s porch life. “Porch sitting is one of our favorite New Orleans past times. We’ve met most of our neighbors by either passing them on their porch while we walk Clementine or seeing them walk by our house! After seeing someone over and over it just makes sense to strike up a conversation,” begins Emily, who is a creative director, stylist, and maker documenting all of her projects on her website and on her Instagram feed.

Cheap Project Cars Under $5,000

Your next hot rod awaits. Which one would you choose?. As the years unfold before our very eyes, it's easy to forget how long ago those automotive memories of youth really are. Remember when just a few hundys would buy a running muscle car that only needed a few tweaks to get back into solid fighting shape? Those days are long gone, and the project cars we craved are getting older, pricier, rarer, and more disheveled. Before long, many project cars will be unrealistic and unobtainable to all but a few folks with stacks of spare cash. How long are you willing to wait to claw back a scrap of your youth?

Dog Abandoned At Gas Station Finds Sweetest Way To Ask Someone For Help

Earlier this week, Shannon Ackerman pulled into a Texaco gas station in Missouri City, Texas, to fill up her tank. She’d just rescued a husky and her two puppies, who had been trapped in a drain pipe next to a highway, and she was on her way home with them. But when Ackerman stepped out of her car, she got the biggest surprise.

6 Things I Learned by Decorating My Living Room with Only Free and Secondhand Finds

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission. When I moved into a new apartment this year, I knew I wanted to furnish it with as many free or secondhand items as I could. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, I live in Brooklyn, and the streets of New York City and the surrounding boroughs were gold mines during the pandemic as residents fled the city and emptied their apartments (and beautiful vintage furniture) onto the streets, all free for the taking. (Just take a look at Stooping NYC’s Instagram feed for a little glimpse of the goodness.) Secondly, I wanted to save money. I’ve moved several times and I know how disposable furniture can feel and I just don’t have the money to buy new items just to get rid of them when moving again because they don’t fit the new place or the design style that I’m currently into at that moment. Lastly, I work as a professional organizer and I have a small… I don’t want to say hatred, but something close to that word, for “stuff” — so I’m constantly purging and then consequently on the search for items that bring me true joy.

At $7,000, Is this 1998 Toyota 4Runner Dinged Up But Not Down For The Count?

The seller of today’s Nice Price or No Dice 4Runner claims in the ad to be in no rush to sell. We’ll have to decide if that sense of non-urgency is reflected in the price. Being miscast in Hollywood can oftentimes be a career killer. The seller of yesterday’s Simpson-bodied 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata won’t suffer so dramatic an end, but having placed the car in “auto parts” rather than “autos,” will limit the roadster’s exposure and hence the opportunity to find a new home. At $10,500, many of you felt the Miata’s price was miscast as well, a fact reflected in the overwhelming 67 percent No Dice loss that was cast as the Miata’s fate.

Soft Paws: Discussing exotics

You may well have seen a critter in a pet store or elsewhere (like Craigslist), specially caged, just waiting to be the hit of every cocktail party or football game you invite friends over for. It may have two, four, six, eight or more legs — or none at all. It may eat other live animals, making it extra intriguing. It may come in splendid colors, or be black as night. It may have fangs or venom, pinchers or stingers, claws or stink glands.
