Pod chairs and egg houses

Yesterday, Casey (creator of the award-winning, and extraordinary blog, reminded me of the incredible pod chair she created (woven by hand, cushions all hand-made) (I am constantly amazed at her talent, I have learned so much from her blog). Here it is, with Tessie making sure we notice the Beatles pillows:

Coincidently, last night, I saw this wicker egg house on

To learn more about this "egg" residence, go to (Although, I appreciate low-cost, portable housing, I think the egg house would work better indoors or in a backyard, and I still like Casey's pod chair better.)


Casey also suggested that a terrarium could be used to recreate one of the bubble houses I talked about in my last blog. Yep, they do work! Here's what I found at

Can you imagine little people, with little furniture, along with the greenery, in these glass bubbles?


Speaking of pod chairs and egg houses, I am reminded of the Pod (or Mushroom) House that was built in Rochester, NY, for Robert and Marguerite Antell in the 1960s. Rochester is my hometown, and I was fortunate to spend a little time with this lovely couple when I was 17. Here is the Pod House:

Wishing you only good things, Neen


  1. Neen, thanks for the nod in my direction. I am going to nod right back at you....Your first few posts are outstanding. Love the pods!

  2. I could so live in a pod house. When i was little i used to dream of having a bedroom that was egg shaped, the psychotherapist in me now says "womb" but regardless, I still want that room, and maybe mini is the way to go! x

  3. Many urban planner/ psychologists think we will be happier in smaller, rounder, cozier homes. I know I am fascinated (obsessed) with small, portable houses (I may have been a snail in a prior life-they carry their house on their back). By the way, I love your blog!

  4. Wouldn't it be cool to make a really, really tiny room in one of those hanging pods?
