Splendid Monolithic dome home in Colorado up for grabs
Dome’s your home. Perfections aren’t always straight, they could be curved as a dome. If thought baffles you, the picture above should clarify. The six-bedroom, two-bath, 5,600 sq. ft. monolithic dome home is situated on a bluff at 6,700 feet above sea level, in the heart of the Apishipa River Valley near Aguilar, Colorado. The beautiful Huajatolla Peaks greets the monolithic dome home in the back. The home consists of eight interconnected domes, with the main dome 40 feet in diameter with 1,756 square feet of living space, including living room, dining area, kitchen and loft. There are two bedrooms on the upper level and all the six are 22 feet in diameter. Peacock feather dining tables
adorn the Living room and dining area.
Other facilities include a theater dome, a 1,300-square-foot guest home, a geodesic growing dome and a solar powered well. In winters, the home looks like igloos positioned side by side. The peaceful, fabulous property has been appraised at $1,000,000 and is listed at $975,000.

Christmas Tree with diamonds for $1.8 million in Japan.
This Christmas do something different. Like spending a cool $1.8 million (¥200.7 million) just on a Christmas tree! If you are in Japan then you can actually buy this EXPENSIVE small tower of preserved roses with a teddy bear. Selling at Japan’s Takashimaya department store chain, the tree, which stands 40 centimeters high, features about 100 carats of diamonds from southern Africa and Australia. Based on a design by Parisian flower boutique Claude Quinquaud, the smaller diamond pieces sparkle charmingly like morning dew on petals, while two-carat and three-carat pieces mesmerize admirers with their noble glow.
