The protective cover is missing from the fan. But it still works just fine.

January 15th, 2017 · 1 Comment

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.

170115aberdeenmd2

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.

Boxing Day

December 26th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Today is Boxing Day in Canada. Last year, we posted a photo of a punching bag to celebrating boxing. But some Canadian readers said we got it wrong. This year, we’re posting photos of boxes. We hope we get it right this time. Happy Boxing Day!

This Phoenix home has lots and lots of boxes. They really know how to celebrate Boxing Day!

161226a

More boxes in the bedroom closet!

161226b

Toy collection pinned to the wall. Plus pin-up calendars. And a messy home office. No boxes?

161226c

Since they’re selling the house and since it’s Boxing Day today, they should box up all the books and movies.

161226d

Cluttered bathroom.

Christmas Eve

These sellers still had their Christmas tree up when the house sold in late April.

161224c

These sellers started decorating early. Their Christmas tree was up when they listed the house on November 23rd.
