I didn’t have stairs in my home growing up, but I remember tobogganing down my friends stairs on foam mattresses. On your bottom, on your back, on your stomach… stairs were a multitude of fun… until someone got a carpet burn or landed too hard on a particularly pointy stair. Trisha Cleveland on Quirky has come up with an alternative to bumpy, potentially unsafe rides down the stairs. SlideRider turns an indoor staircase into an indoor slide.
Don’t you wish you could live in a house that was outside the ordinary?
Well here’s one we prepared earlier… in 2007.
The Nautilus is an incredible house designed by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain.
The local classifieds are always an amazing place for unique finds, and as I’m on the prowl for things for my new house I’m seeing more and more gothic items on Gumtree, the Australian version of Craig’s List/Classifieds.
But since I only have so much space in my house, I thought I’d share some of these finds with you in case you might want to take some of the pretties home.
My Gentleman and I bought a house!
It’s our very own! Words cannot convey my excitement and happiness that it’s finally happened.
We can do whatever we want to it. No more rental inspections or removable stick-on picture hooks for us. No more bland walls or neutral coloured carpets.
But I’m so excited by all the possibilities that it’s literally paralysed me from doing anything to customise it.
Purely because I can do EVERYTHING, I’ve done nothing.
