Yes, I know; I'm a very naughty blogger.  The Koala will have my toenails yet, I fear.

I don't want to turn this into an edited blog of collect and repost, but I have some things I want to share.  I really love the idea of recycled materials used for building and furnishing, especially when the character has been left intact.  So here's a collection of stuff that pushes my happy buttons.

Choi Jeong Ghwa's amazing door facade

 Cano's Castle, mostly recycled windows and beer cans

And then there's these:
glass bottle chapel glass bottle wall glass bottle temple

taken from, which is one of the most amazing virtual places I've ever been.  I can't tell you how excited it makes me when people go to the trouble to create something beautiful, especially out of things that have been thrown away.

So here's the thing; I have a enormous collection of blue Prosecco bottles.  How would this


do for a writing shed, do you think?  Think I'd get it past the building inspector here in Switzerland?
