Ventana Vista Bookshelf

People have used wood for buildings and furniture long before they invented the nails. So they used certain innovative and intelligent ways of combining and linking wood so as not to use any nails or screws, but the furniture parts will still be in place. Some of these techniques are still used in China and in other parts of the world and they are illustrated in the design of such furniture items like this Ventana Vista Bookshelf.

The bookshelf has two rectangular also wooden short legs that allow you to move the shelves from one room to another easily without having to unbolt them from the walls. The shape and size show you that this piece of furniture can be used for storing different other objects and decorations, not only books. It is made only if you order one such item for $1,529.

Interesting Scatter Shelf

Although I love all kinds of animals and insects I am also afraid of them. Dogs, bugs or spiders are not really my favorite animals or insects. I am afraid of a dog that barks, I do not like to see bugs in the bathroom and I do not like to touch any spider at all.

These are some fears that I cannot control them and sometimes they create me real problems. For example dogs which have high senses feel my fear and start barking immediately or come near me. You cannot imagine how badly I react, trying to escape such an inconvenient situation.

Great Boat Shelves Collection

Sailing is a wonderful activity which fills you up with many satisfactions. It offers you the chance to practice a sport, to see the world or just admire the surroundings floating on the surface of a beautiful lake. For me ships, boats or planes occupy a special place in my heart. They remind me of some wonderful moments that I have spend far away from home or country and gave me opportunity to open my horizons and see the world from a different perspective.

Rowing was for me love at first sight. The moment I have learnt to row a boat I could not resist staying away from the lake where I could practice this activity. Rowing a boat is a great way of relaxation, of keeping you in a good shape and enjoying wonderful moments that the natural environment can offer you.
