Boy Decor - 06/04/14

 Who needs an interior designer when you have a little boy?  Mine has an innate knack  when it comes to Feng Shui.  I've attached plenty of pics so you can get a feel for his rather avant-garde style. 

   Take that yellow golf ball in the flower arrangement for example. That incorporates all the principles of good design~ there's texture, form and a big splash of color.

   Then there's the addition of his 'sticky slap lizards & slap hands' stuck on our library ceiling  Hmmm...  You could characterize this as multi-layered.  Yet, another great design component.

   His legos are strewn from one room to the other, providing form and finish on most countertops and couches.  

   Finally, there's my favorite.  The use of fabric, specifically cotton, more specifically dirty socks.  He stuffed them in that bike in the pic to your right when I asked him to put them away.  Alas, a 'green' & sustainable design element.  No washing machine needed.

    I found this quote from some designer, "Designers are meant to be loved, not to be understood."  I love my little designer.

POLICE-GOAT

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Some Detroit-area cops are dealing with some real animals. Officers in Shelby Township had to take control of a black goat when it was found wandering a city park this week. Last month, the department rounded up an aggressive stray pig that charged a woman doing yard work. The pig was briefly detained and a photo of its ride in the back of a police cruiser went viral. The department is now trying to get the goat off its hands. Officers have posted a picture on Facebook, asking, "Does anyone know who owns this goat?!"

STONER CAMP

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- Plans for a pot-friendly ranch resort in Colorado have been snuffed out. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities like hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting the resort says it won't open after all. The deal was kicked after the announcement made international headlines and became the butt of jokes on late-night TV.

FIREWORKS TRUCK EXPLODES

IVANPAH, Calif. (AP) -- Fourth of July has come early along a Southern California freeway. A van packed with fireworks exploded yesterday in what one witness calls a "psychedelic" display. But the sparkling sight was a headache for everyone caught in the backup that ensued. The burned out van briefly closed the main road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at the start of the holiday weekend. The driver of the van fled and hasn't been found.

MAILING METH

HONOLULU (AP) -- Most people see a toaster oven and think breakfast. Some criminals, think crystal meth. Two men are pleading not guilty to helping mail six pounds of methamphetamine from California to Hawaii in a four slice toaster. And it's not the first time drug smugglers have gotten savvy with shipments to the island state. Meth has previously been shipped to Hawaii in mannequin heads and stuffed animals.
