She also collects family photos.  And she has a gun/rifle.  When Grandma says, “I’m gonna shoot,” do you duck or say ”cheese”?!

A rifle, a scythe, two saws, and a golf club.  Grandma’s ready for the zombie apocalypse!

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.

Nostalgic for a time gone by, we present two homes from Orangeburg, South Carolina that are frozen in time.  Enjoy.

This Orangeburg home was built in 1954.  The living room features wallpaper, green carpet, and green drapes.
