James G Howes 'Rio'

As I said in an earlier post, I was thinking of all the talented and gracious members here from Brazil, Amo todos vocês e pode o Rio medrar sempre! The scenery used in this design is a copyrighted photo of Rio de Janeiro seen from Corcovado Mountain by James G. Howes. Even though the photo is copyrighted, Mr. Howes graciously gives public permission for it's use, but attribution is required! Click his name above for the source and information and to also view the full beauty of this amazing photo! Anyone here who takes this in a remix and continues to use the scenery, I would greatly appreciate it if you would give attribution to Mr. Howes in your story line.

    Russ, thank you for your explanation but you wrote in Portuguese the word "fresco". In this case the best word for your "cool" would be legal for Portuguese translation. But the important here is that you have been a preciously nice person.

    Carmen, I just meant the Polyvore design was very cool and sexy, and that the moodboard I put it on was cool also. Cool means very good and interesting here.

    Russ, please, write in English what you want to tell me here "Vi o seu desenho em Polyvore. É muito fresco! Sexy! E isto é fresco também!" It's funny when you say "É muito fresco!" and "E isto é fresco também!" hehehehehe

    Thanks Bright Side, but don't worry, it's on a mountain and there's ground under it. I guess it's really a terrace, I got carried away!

    Gorgeous, Russ!!!  The great building & exterior design fit so perfectly into the lovely setting.  With how I feel about heights, I'm not sure how close I could get to those planters, but from here on my sofa the view is perfect     : )

    Oh Sanare obrigado so much! I grew up listening to Girl From Ipanema! In the U.S. the English version sung by Astrud Gilberto with Stan Getz on sax was very popular for some twenty years! I loved it and thank you so much for this post! I'd like to post here that version that I think so many my age will remember:
