best woodpile ever?

Another one via Ouno Design, this is a work by Alastair Heseltine, a sculptor from British Columbia ... suddenly we're not that impressed with our firewood pile ...

Probably wouldn't be able to bring ourselves to burn any of it though.  Wonder if he's planning an upright version?

public seating

a couple of park benches in Mexico City we saw on Ouno Design's blog ... fun!

modern love

No big news, just a gorgeous house we saw in Bendigo ... can't understand why people are demolishing mid-century beauties to build hollow rehashes of the same design principles.  This place has it all (at least what we could see from the street) - crazy-paved walls and verandahs, floor-to-ceiling glass panels, cantilevered skillion roof-line ... too cool.

It's a pretty simple formula, but we'd take this over some new-build metricon shack any day!  C'mon people, buy 'em, save 'em, love 'em!
