Cluttered Walls

May 9th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Why would anyone put a hammer and a hoe on a kitchen wall or any wall inside a house?

What are those sticks in the upper right?  And notice more stuff on the walls in the next room.

Frenzied Family Room

April 4th, 2014 · 1 Comment

This chaotic family room would make a great game of seek and find.  Can you find the umbrella, the broom, the lint roller, the organ, the shoes, the treadmill, the lady in the purple sweatshirt, the blender, the flashlight, the bucket, etc.?

Noah’s Ark

March 28th, 2014 · 3 Comments

I saw the bunny in the blanket at a Sun City, Arizona home and thought, “This is perfect for an Easter post.”  Then I realized there were pairs of animals.  Aha!  I was flooded with an idea:  Today is the premiere of the Noah movie.

At least the window drapes aren’t knotted.  Pushed to the side creates a jaunty look.
