Window drapes in a bathroom shower will get soaking wet.  Smart idea?

Overly dramatic.

And again in another room.

Utterly useless here.  The curtain rods are only 2 feet wide.

It takes more time and energy to throw the drapes over the rod than it would be to pull them to one side.

Too much fabric and too heavy.

Creative Saltillo Tile Mosaics

April 3rd, 2014 · 3 Comments

You can buy linoleum flooring that has a cobblestone pattern.  This floor doesn’t seem to have a repeating pattern.  I think it might be pieces of saltillo clay tile that were painstakingly placed there.  That’s a lot of time & energy and grout.

The house has saltillo tile throughout.  Along with a few friends.  Here’s Mr. Turtle.

This appears to be a woman with very tiny hands.  Perhaps it was inspired by Kristen Wiig’s character named Dooneese on Saturday Night Live?

This is a frog jumping to a lily pad.  But it looks like a de-feathered chicken.

This home has a lot of minor fixes.  Easy stuff, right?

Just needs new peel-n-stick flooring.

A little Comet will clean that sink up quick.
