'This stone house is tucked into the Fafe Mountains in Portugal.. Constructed between two giant stones and linked with a concrete mix, the house is rumored to be inspired by the popular American Flintstones cartoon. Although quite unusual, the prehistoric-looking residence does feature some traditional components such as windows, a front door, and even a shingled roof. As you might expect, the house’s design attracts thousands of tourists each year.'

I went to a furniture fair at the Javits center last month and I saw the
coolest litter box ever! A slick design that you can put this anywhere without shame..It has the "rooftop" access meaning a cat would jump to the top and go into the hole to do the business then climb out after.. pretty expensive for a litter box, goes for $180, but it's worth it I think..

The children lean on their elbows
I was walking by an upscale tableware store 'Bernardaud',I noticed these charming little sculptures in their display window.. They were done beautifully in porcelain.. Workmanship amazed me because I know how difficult it is to create such details in porcelain.. The artist, Lin Hairong is a Chinese oil painter, born in 1975 in Beijing.. 'She attempts to convey the calm she feels when immersing herself in traditional arts, taking refuge in them while the frenzied
place of life in modern day china to speed by. Her porcelain figures possess the same trait that make her paintings so irresistibly charming, namely the subtle humor, tinged with irony''

This is the cutest! The letter-pressed town kit that you assemble and
arrange your own!! All the illustration and sketches are done by
hand and turned into letterpress plates then
printed on a paper press.. This is so charming..
They should do a town with Christmas decorations!

I've been obsessed with white interior ever since
I came back from L.A.. I realize now how much I was
deprived of sun light living in my apt!
It's cozy and comfortable but depressingly dark..
So the search of a new apt begins..

I took these photos on our way to Stanford University for
a friend's wedding.. We drove endless valleys of white clouds,
blue sky and green pastures for a long time..
It was a perfect day..
Pictures Came out pretty nice considering I was in fast
moving car with a tiny digital camera.

This bookmark by atypyk makes me smile..
One of my new year resolutions is to read more books..
It seems I always start daydreaming as soon as I sit down:
thou it's not a bad thing since I get many design ideas this way..
But this year, I just have to make conscious decision to
stop thinking and start reading.. : )
