Somehow grain silos continue to capture my imagination. This one is just the top part, turned upside down, with a roof and door added. I don’t know if it still exists (Michael W. contributed this link of it on Google Maps Street View) but I read that this unique little tea kettle abode is in Galveston, Texas with no full time resident.
Small measures marks the success of our house project these days. This weekend we installed a food pantry in our tiny 17 inch wide kitchen closet. Michael and I wanted something easy and adjustable so we installed Elfa wire ventilated shelving from the Container Store. (I love/hate that place.)
That pantry door could sport a nice DIY spice rack, don’t you think?
Thank you to all of my curious readers who have been politely nagging me about the blog and wondering what the heck I’ve been doing lately. I can sum it up like this: vacation, wishing I was still on vacation, getting ready for the next vacation. Not to worry, more posts soonish.
This is the fictitious city and movie set where the “Lord of the Rings” movies were filmed. Thirty-seven hobbit holes were created with untreated timber, plywood and polystyrene. It’s actually a sheep farm.
Sad that I couldn’t find the original source of the above image, but that doesn’t stop me from sharing it here. This is complete inspiration for me in getting ready for outdoor travel… imagine coming home to this at night! From my tumblelog.
Update: Thanks to my readers’ investigative efforts, I can now say that it appears to be the work of artist Tim Prentice.

A few images from the 1979 Rolling Homes, Handmade Houses on Wheels by Jane Lidz, a rare and valuable book nowadays. I think most of these trucks were from the Eugene, Oregon area.
