San Francisco Treehouse. A treehouse build 7.6 meters up in an 125-year-old coast live oak. Recycled, reclaimed and vintage materials have been used in the making. The whole construction has been put up in the tree without using any bolts or nails; therefore, not damaging the tree. The treehouse is truly magical because of its rustic interior and small details reminding of childhood. Located in Burlingame, San Francisco Bay, CA.

I’d be reluctant to say that humans can improve upon the natural world’s beauty, but this may just be one of those instances. These sculptural maple leaf bowls, by artist Kay Sekimachi, were created using maple leaves, Kozo paper, watercolor, and Krylon coating to highlight the leave’s veins and give the bowls an otherworldly feel.

So, upcycled? Recycled? Reused? What do you think?

I sat next to her listening intently
She was spilling herself
Telling a story and sharing her thoughts
As I gazed upon her expressions
I drank in her beauty
Unable to resist,
The smell of her hair and skin
Small scars and imperfections
It was so clear - this wonderful being
She smiled at the end and grasped my hand
Gratitude uttered from those lips, amazing
I realized at this moment
I am more than a friend
I am a man admiring a woman
Intimately and patiently letting it unfold
She looks at me and beams
It’s real…not some fantasy
I saw her as she was made to be seen
Getting to know her, all these layers
Made me humble
Even if I never kissed her, loved her
She is a goddess
A vision of truth…nothing less
