Surfboard to Hang in Room

Ebay auction of a Surfboard for Room.
I bought a surfboard from this seller years ago and have it hanging in one of my boys bedrooms above his headboard. It adds a very nice touch to his Hawaiian style bedroom. This is what the seller says:
"I am Proud to offer a hand shaped and painted surfboard that will look excellent in any Beach, Hawaiian, Tiki or Ocean Themed room. Once you win this auction I will contact the buyer. I will send photos of all of my designs. The winner then picks a shape, a design and the colors. The choice is yours, I will create it to your specifications. The boards measure approx. 48 x 12 x 1 inches. Made from solid pine, this board is hand painted. The wood is solid pine, a very nice solid plank. You will not be disappointed with the boards. It has a real nice shape to it, Not just straight rails and edges. All of this hard work has also been protected by 3-6 coats of polyurethane sealant to give it a high gloss appearance and I recoat the piece until I get that appearance. Really beautiful!! You will be satisfied!!"

House in Ticino

X marks the spot - Davide Macullo takes full advantage of this stunning foothill plot. Embedding and hiding the services and garage of the residence into the hillside, lets the main living areas sit above and soak up the views.

Located in one of sunniest place in southern Switzerland, the house is characterised by small monolithic volumes following the natural slope of the land and is surrounded by nature. The landscape seems to "flow" through these volumes and become protected courtyards of green. The construction is enhanced by an entrance "cave" surrounded by the green and following slope of the plot. The house continues up the slope in an organic and fluent sequence of spaces, related to each other and stretched out to embrace the surrounding nature. This typology aims at offering an alternative to the "box-shaped" construction on the hills that seem to proliferate the area, building without respect for the environment.

Apart from the concrete foundations required on the sloping site (and perhaps the excavation, which one could argue against, for its ability to hide some of the build), the whole construction has been realised according to sustainable principles and with bio-ecological materials in mind.

Wood and copper are unusual materials when one thinks of high end glamorous construction. In this build, these undervalued materials come to life due to their sustainable features. The wonderful texture of the copper mesh, brings the façade to life.

A double envelope contains and protects the interior spaces. The internal envelope is built with the STEKO® wood-bricks, a constructive technology which adds further structural rigidity and modular uniformity to the renowned sustainable nature of wood. The Steko® system, utilised even in the internal partitions, is fully recyclable and reduces the time spent on site, with a corresponding reduction in noise, dust, site traffic and other environmental nuisances.

The external skin is made of a recyclable copper screen, that protects the wooden internal envelope, further regulating internal temperatures.

With the garage hidden below grade, out under the front lawn, the rest of the house is spread over two levels. The kitchen and services area on one and the main living and sleeping areas at ground level.

Honeymoon Beach Towel

Today I came across a fun idea for a wedding present. It is a beach scene bride & groom beach towel featuring intricate embroidery of a beach scene that features a bride and a groom kissing behind a palm tree on the beach. The phrase "Let the Fun Begin!" is also embroidered on the beach towel. Comes beautifully rolled up with two baby blue ribbons. This would be fun to display at a wedding reception or send it with the bride and groom on their tropical honeymoon. On sale for $19.99
