This neat little home featured in the New York Times is Swiss inspired architecture located in the midst of a very traditional Polish town. The interior features simple concrete floors and particleboard walls.
The exterior features prominent vertical planks of spruce, instead of the plaster exterior used in most of Poland’s “castle” homes. While the planks are more expensive upfront than plaster, the planks will age better than plaster over time and save money in the long run.
Check out the photos below. I know it’s not for everyone, but it is cool nonetheless.
I am a recent leggings convert. It has taken me a little while to jump on the bandwagon, mainly because every pair I ever buy always ends up making me look like I have saggy baggy elephant legs. And girls, you know what I mean. Wearing pants made with Lycra and spandex leave little to the imagination as it is. It takes a bit of confidence to strut fully in leggings, but worn under a skirt or dress or tunic… yeah, I’ll give it a go! But not if it means I am constantly pulling and tugging. Waistbands that dig in or roll down and saggy baggy knees are not my thing.
Is the packaging meant to deter me? Or should I laugh at the message as I devour every morsel of chocolately goodness? You decide…

P.S. Play the Falling Piggies Game on their website. It’s hilarious.
