Comments on A pink room in Russia on January 1 and a hot pot of stewing bison meat in this week’s reader photos

  1. I think the multi-eaved house in Japan is a way to ward off ghosts. I think I read that in an article somewhere a long time ago and a galaxy far, far away.

  2. From my daugher-of-a-contractor viewpoint, the Japanese eaves look like a massive DIY effort — notice that they’re all more-or-less over windows or doors? If they were having massive rainwater rushing off the roof or issues with their overhang not being long enough, this could be their fix. The nesting effect could be because each piece wasn’t quite long enough to cover what they needed (the peaks look pre-fab). It also looks like there’s some foam insulation tacked on beneath them.

    …can you imagine how AMAZING it looks with water rushing over it?

  3. Love that pink desk and the room is just so dreamy! It looks so summery to. Just what I need while its so grey outside.

    My first thought on the eaves is that it could be to encourage birds like swallows to nest? But what Amy said sounds more likely.
    Really want to try bison. It looks very tasty. 🙂

  4. Poo-Pourri is fantastic! My sensitive nose can’t handle the sprays and whatnot that people typically use to get rid of bathroom smells, but Poo-Pourri uses essential oils so it’s totally okay! I’m only familiar with the original, citrusy-scented one.
