Romantic heart-shaped bathtub for two! Bring on the bubbles and the bubbly!

These were sent from our reader Landon. This is from his 1983 Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada home. The bathtub is surrounded by 8″ tile and smoked glass mirrors (typical of the 1980s). The house had seafoam green/blue carpet, mahogany wood trim, parquet wood flooring, and Zest-soap-colored countertops.

Not sure what purpose this photo serves to buyers. A photographer’s shadow and bags of trash.

Shirtless Joe’s Place

January 18th, 2017 · 8 Comments

Shirtless Joe welcomes you to his Tonopah, Arizona home. Please come inside.

There he is! Shirtless Joe!

Joe likes to cook.

The odor really affects your appetite.

P.E.A.C.E. = Please Extract All Clutter Elements

Joe likes to save everything.

Joe keeps a close eye on all of his possessions.

Is this what you call vehicular manslaughter?

You never know when you might need something. Better to have it available.

Here’s another angle of the pallets.

Let’s ask Joe if that room addition has a building permit.

It looks well-built.

That yard is looking a little tired.

Good luck.

Face the Wall

It’s fun to stare at a blank wall.

The chair has wooden slats underneath. To keep it from tipping backward?

Our reader Karen sent us these photos of an Aberdeen, Maryland home. Here’s evidence of a stolen Holiday Inn towel! Shame on them.

The other bathroom has a busy look. Let’s remove all the stuff on each side of the shower.

Which looks twice as bad when it’s reflected in a mirror.

170115aberdeenmd3

Yes, it’s a game room, but the rifle could go, as well as the Pepsi clock and life preserver.

170115aberdeenmd4

When you enter the house, you see visual clutter. Clear out the foyer.

170115aberdeenmd5

Nice home. Just needs tidying up here and there. Moral of the story: present your home in the best manner and don’t steal hotel towels.
