After crying my eyeballs out, I would either try to fix it myself, or run to my mum to have her fix Lion as soon as possible. Akira Suzuki and Togo Kida had a similar memory.

Tiny Reclaimed Wood Cabins That Appear Plucked From the Pages of Dr. Seuss Dan Pauly builds guest cottages, playhouses, garden sheds, and saunas all appearing to be perfectly suited for an enchanted forest. The small, asymmetrical buildings have a long slanted roof, crooked chimney, and charming front window with built-in flower box. Each cabin designed by Pauly and his company The Rustic Way is built with reclaimed wood, each piece restored to reflect its natural weathered condition. Pauly’s woodworking history goes back four generations, back to the 1800s when his family emigrated to the US and built several barns in Minnesota (some of which are still standing).
