Not all grandmas are only into knitting and feeding stray cats: a Russian pensioner Olga Kostina, for instance, took up a very creative project of a house make-over by covering every wall of the facade in colored bottle caps. Located in a secluded Karmarchaga village in Russia, in the Siberian Taiga, the sight of her house will definitely take you by surprise. The woman had been collecting the caps over the years till she reached 30 000 and then nailed her whole collection to the walls, organizing them in various ethnic ornaments and animal portraits.

About a week ago Design You Trust wrote about an amazing 13 meters tall Christmas tree “made of 40 thousands ‘SPRITE’ plastic bottles” in Kaunas, Lithuania. However, according to the original sources like Delfi and Lrytas, there are “only” 32,000 recycled plastic bottles, but the tree will have 40,000 Christmas lights. That’s why you should never trust anyone, even if they have a word “trust” in their name. Nevertheless, the Christmas tree looks really great, and it’s especially beautiful at night when it’s lit from the inside and the green bottles start to sparkle.
