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?

Makes me feel better about dropping a china teacup on the kitchen floor this morning...

I'll have the bottle shed if you can't get it through customs.

I'm so glad, Whirl. What have you created from the shards? I'm dying to see :]

Prickles, you may have to come and collect it. I am looking for some kind of blue bottle project, though. I have a largish collection of them that is too pretty to be in cupboards. Plus, I think this little village just needs a shake up.

Isn't it time for a new post yet?

It's so far past time- but I don't really have anything to say. Nothing is really new except that I've decided the time has come to seek gainful employment. I'm currently engaged in trying to write my CV without using any of my hard-won fiction writing skills, but really, I'm pretty much free of marketable skills. Perhaps I should blog about that; How to get a job in a bad economy when you have no marketable skills and live in a country where the few qualifications you have are invalid. What do you think? Too depressing for June?

Not sure if you're still reading blogs or that you knew Chris Eldin - Church Lady. Please join us if you did.

It's been ages since I've seen you around and I just wondering how you're doing?
