Chutes & Ladders.

This house, located in northern Japan, looks a little like a giant ice cube from the outside. On the inside, it's a real-life version of Chutes and Ladders, with winding steel staircases and wooden ladders leading to various elevated (and un-fenced) floors. And while that play area is almost certainly a terrible accident waiting to happen, it also looks like a very nice place to read, or write, or hang a string of lights and eat dinner on the floor.

Three more links, just because:
-Death Valley in sunset colors.
-A mashed potato chocolate cake.
-Lastly, David Bowie on the uncertainty of the future: "I don't know where I'm going from here but I promise it won't be boring." Yes.

New POV post coming tomorrow. Until then!


  1. Such a cool space! They're just missing a slide :)

  2. I would fall off something immediately. I'm sure of it. Looking forward to your new POV post.

  3. Oh how fun! I'd never get anything done in there, it looks like too much fun.

  4. I'm gonna have to agree with Melissa! Also, love the color scheme.

  5. That is such a great Bowie quote. And potatoes in cake?! I'm intrigued - will definitely have to make that mashed potato chocolate cake, now.

  6. I'd be the first one falling - such a clumsy person! Also love that quote - might have to make that my new mantra :)

  7. Kathy, let me know how it goes, please!
