Green scooter design

Not quite a pint but always half full.

Cost Plus World Market came out with the wallet-friendly fenderlight Christmas ornaments but they also carry a lot of other scooter merchandise like these glasses. You can buy a set online or visit their stores to buy just one to hold your toothbrushes. The set of four is $15.96. Other designs feature the London skyline and a red telephone box as well as Paris and a little Fiat. Made in Italy.

This Week’s Rare Bit O’Swag:
The Fabulous Wood Vespa

Many of you have probably already seen one or two photos of this incredible work of art, but finding more photos of its construction spurred me to post about it. Portuguese craftsman Carlos Alberto fashioned his Vespa from laminated wood. Taking a Vespa which had fallen into complete disrepair, he used woodcraft techniques to create a completely new body for it. The main frame of the scooter is fashioned from steam bent and laminated veneers on which the gorgeously carved body work hangs. Even the package tray and seat are made from wood!
