A Little Crazy, A Little Fun

Hello to you all!

I just came across these images and ended up  raising my eye brows and giggling. I love unexpected and creative design ideas! The first set of images was sent to me by my fun & stylish friend Pernilla. Look closely!

Now the car is visible.

Now the car is not. (And it closes entirely). I am not so sure I would like to get stuck underground, so I assume you jump out of the car before the elevator takes it down. Pretty slick!

If I had a cranky bunch of work colleagues, I would make sure each and everyone came equipped with one of these mugs. Hard to not enjoy their company then!

These witty moustache mugs are by Peter Ibruegger.

Happy new week. Let it be a good one!

Have you entered my giveway? Tomorrow Tuesday is the last day! Enter here.

    Oh Monika!! The car box, this is great!!! Indeed, I certainly would jump out of the car before he is taken down!!!
    Have a very nice and inspiring week my friend!

  • Mia says:

    Hi Mon,
    Fun and creative! I love the mugs, nice to add a little humor, not always make decorating too serious :) Congrats to the awards, you truly deserve it! Have a great week.

  • Dear Monika
    If I could only afford the car I could perhaps afford the super slick car elevator!! haha

    Quite clever….. maybe I’ll just be satisfied with a mug!!

    have a lovely week xxx Julie

  • That car elevator is amazing!! wow. got a good laugh at the mustache mugs. Happy Monday!

  • Leigha says:

    Love the mustache cups! I must get one…although unless I started drinking my hot liquids in front of the mirror it wouldn’t bring me much enjoyment. Maybe I should say my husband must get one.
    And I cannot stop staring at the landscaping (the cross sections of wood amongst the ‘hairy’ walls!) in the top photos. You know the landscaping is good when it can steal the spot light from that auto-elevator-thing.

    Hi Dear mon,

    I love the idea of the garage. I bet it’s as smart as equally expensive to add something like that to your home. I wish we could implement that in my neighborhood and get rid of all the neighbors’ cars parked outside their houses. There’s nothing that uglyfies a neighborhood more than that, don’t you think?



  • What a cool way to store your car! But I totally agree with you Monika. I’m a little claustrophobic.

    Hope you had a fantastic weekend!


  • sanne says:

    haha…that would be something for my car!!!! And i LOVE the mugs. They are too funny!!! Perfect for work. LIKE!!!

  • heather says:

    I just love those stache mugs! I would probably always find a way to drink out of the wrong side though.

  • The Zhush says:

    You are the best! This is exactly what my tired eyes needed to see! Thanks!

  • So funny …. a man and his porshe … Nothing can come come between them!
    Those mugs are amazing! really cool!


  • Style Attic says:

    Maybe the 007 agent that lives in that house, NEEDS those coffee cups to stay undercover! Great items, big smile :) xx, Kelly

  • Tina says:

    The first pics looks like something out of a James Bond- movie. Very cool!
    Love the coffe mugs as well! What a fun idea!
    Ps. Tack så hjärtans för att du nämnde mig och min lilla blogg i ditt förra inlägg. Vad överraskad jag blev och rörd. Din beskrivning av mig och min blogg var så träffande! Visst handlar det(för mig)onekligen om att hitta ‘stilen’. Det är verkligen något jag är högst förvirrad över:)! Du har dock fått mig att förstå att det går bra att mixa olika stilar och epoker och det är jag så tacksam för! Men, att få det att fungera i verkligheten är för mig ett mysterium.
    Massor med tack och kramar till dig!

  • Delishhh says:

  • Piper says:

  • Trish says:

    Hi Monika. Wished we had a little carport like that…what a space saver. Thanks for the laugh…hope your fall is going well! XO Trish

  • pve says:

    ha ha, too wild. I must show my teenage sons what could happen to them if they text while driving! Drinking out of those cups would make morning cup much happier!

  • Hannis says:

    Jisses! Det finns ideér för allt!
    Bara älskar muggarna.
    Skulle göra succé på min mansdominerade arbetsplats.

    Hoppas du får en bra dag.
    Kram Hannis

  • Hi Monika!
