Happy weekend! Hope it's a good one. Depending on the weather, we're thinking of checking out the ice sculptures at Winterlude and then warming up afterwards with an afternoon in the kitchen making lasagne. How about you?

In an old cottage in Skåne, Sweden, the Sondergaard Kjeldsen family live happily surrounded with an extraordinarily eclectic collection — everything from ballet shoes, old school posters, vintage clothing and Chinese tomb pottery exist harmoniously with mid century modern furniture, while a background of cheerful colour ties it all together. I would love to visit their house for tea — it would be wonderful to spend an hour or so just wandering around looking at it all. More here on Residence.

Wow. Inspired by Pixar's animated hit film Up, last spring National Geographic Channel created a real-life version with a team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots, successfully launching a 16' X 16' house 18' tall with 300 8' colored weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles. More photos here, too.
