Optical Illusion

October 24th, 2014 · 3 Comments

This is a real untouched photo used to promote the sale of a house, just like 99% of the photos shown on this blog.  But what is it?  It took me a while to figure it out.  At first, I thought it was a sink drain with a cigarette butt in it.  Then I thought it was a door handle with the end cap missing.  But it’s something else.  Can you guess what it is?  And why did they take a photo of it?  [Answer in the comments section]

Good grief.

So many visual distractions.

It’s hard to appreciate the home’s features.

It’s just as bad outside.

It will take a long time to pack it all up.

Buyers can’t see the pool clearly, but they can see three BBQ grills.

Little Shop of Horrors

October 23rd, 2014 · 2 Comments

It’s almost Halloween.  You go on ahead and check out the creepy storage room with the sharp rusty saw just waiting to drop on your head.  And then the maniac will hack you with the scythe for good measure.

Ladybug Invasion In Show Low, Arizona

October 22nd, 2014 · 2 Comments

It’s the 11th Plague!  Swarms of giant ladybugs have invaded Show Low, Arizona.  Oh, no!

The original Ladybug (aka Ladybird) rhyme is not so cute:
Ladybug ladybug fly away home,
Your house in on fire and your children are gone,
All except one and that’s little Ann,
For she crept under the frying pan.

Supposedly, the rhyme was written to signify the return of ladybugs to England at harvest time.  The people would try to shoo away the ladybugs to save them before burning the crops.

Hanging By a Thread

October 21st, 2014 · 4 Comments

Rods, finials, and hooks are now passé when it comes to hanging window treatments in 2014.  The hot new trend this season is using wire or rope to hang your drapes and curtains.

Here’s another view.  Tres chic.

New Must-Have Home Décor Item: A Shovel

Hot item for Fall 2014:  a decorative shovel.  Very trendy.

It elevates this kitchen.

A few days later, we spotted another shovel used as decoration at another Phoenix home.  Right in the middle of the living room.  Now that’s a true statement piece.  Halloween and Thanksgiving are coming up.  I’m rushing over to Home Depot right now to pick up some shovels and then to Hobby Lobby for acrylic paints, brushes, and raffia!
