Balloons are usually pretty straightforward. You buy them, blow them up, tie on a string and enjoy for a few hours until they deflate (or the helium is wrongfully sucked out of them). It's a shame!

Adding flair to your surroundings doesn't have to break the bank -- and you don't have to be a prodigy to pull it off, either. Try these wallet-friendly ways to beautify your home, whether you're a domestic goddess or a casual craft enthusiast.
Clever Box Spring Cover
Find dust ruffles a bit fussy -- and costly? Dress up your bed by slipping a fitted sheet over the box spring for a streamlined look. Use a sheet that matches those on the bed, or set off a coverlet or duvet by choosing one in a matching pattern or contrasting hue.
Stylish Media Cabinet
Making a smarter media unit is about as easy as playing Tetris: Combine inexpensive, unfinished cubes to create a larger structure, and then treat it to a dose of style.
Basic storage cubes
Decorative knobs and feet (optional) with hardware
1. Remove all existing knobs and paint the cubes, inside and out. Experiment with colors to add visual interest. Let dry.Read More »from Budget Home DIYs (That You Can Actually Do Yourself)

Are you bemoaning that summer and all the backyard-centric activities associated with it -- barbecuing, swimming, unwinding in a hot tub, romping around on the grass, throwing a rowdy al fresco dance parties under a starlit sky -- is soon coming to an end? Well, start saving -- and stockpiling dry goods -- as a Las Vegas property where you can partake in all of your favorite backyard leisure activities year-round, rain or shine, has reappeared on the market with a just-reduced price tag of $1.6 million.
Oh, and also, the two-bedroom ranch-style property, complete with detached one-bedroom guest quarters and a heated in-ground pool, is located 26 feet underground within a 15,200-square-foot basement that was built in the late 1970s as a Cold War-era bunker.

Solar adobes in New Mexico
Architects in the 1970s re-embraced the adobe, the ancient building material long used to help temper the sun's heat in the southwest and Mexico. When we featured it in 1978, we noted the thick walls kept the interiors at a comfortable 70 degrees, regardless of the temperature outdoors.Finding room for technology
