I came across some of the cutest greeting cards the other day from an American shop called Square Paisley Designs. JoAnne Maass is amazingly creative, her shop stocks jewellery, totes, baby beanies, onesies and greeting cards with all the illustrations done by Jo herself.

40 Swiss cable cars were given a new lease on life by 40 Swiss artists, designers and architects. The project is a Swiss cultural project by the Make a Wish Foundation of Switzerland and Rock by Adrien Rovero, is the first to be revealed.

Swiss architect firm, Peter Kunz, designed these ingenious parking garages that look like they were swallowed by a hungry hillside. Five concrete structures, fronted with glass stick out of the side of a hillside, overlooking the plain in Herden, Switzerland.
The perfect way to display that Porsche you just rolled off the showroom floor, I think.
This lovely bath tub from Swiss company Bagno Sasso is just another example of the lengths they will go to for a unique bath tub. It is crafted by hand from glass and mahogany in a range of colours.
