Lawn Ornament Madness

It’s not for sale, but we thought you’d get a kick out of this.  Talk about brightening up the neighborhood.  At least it looks very clean.  The windmill’s a cute touch.

    I bet every dog in the neighborhood just loves this.

    If this is what the outside looks like, I don’t want to see the inside of that house!

    Maybe it’s a clever security system, I mean really would you rob this house?

    Waldo’s just below the left window

    I don’t think that is Waldo, I think it is Woody Woodpecker.

    Better than trash and rusty cars. As the comment says, at least it looks clean and cared for. I suppose it makes someone happy. The blue and white colour scheme saves it from looking too terrible.

    There was a home in San Carlos California that looked somewhat like this. The owners dedicated the lawn to their son or grandson who was a fireman. You can imagine what the lawn looked like; dog, truck, get the drift. It’s no longer like that so not sure if they sold or the grandson/son asked them to remove it all. Well, that’s love for you!

    I would like to use the photo of the house with all of the ornaments out front in a presentation I am doing. Do you own the photo? Can I have permission to use it?

    Ann, It’s from the public domain.
