We Are Knot Pleased

February 10th, 2014 · 5 Comments

We’ve asked nicely many times to please make it stop.  No more knotted curtains!  But they keep showing up.

Perhaps these El Mirage, Arizona sellers thought the knotted curtains would give their kitchen a certain je ne sais quoi?

These sellers showed restraint.  They only knotted one curtain, not all three.  For that, we somewhat thank them.  TV’s on!

Maybe they thought if they didn’t tuck the knot behind the sofa that buyers wouldn’t notice the pile of clothes?

Two giant knots, four pillows, and six suitcases.

Knot a good idea.

The dog thinks the curtains look like a bat.  He’s ready to attack the curtains.  Looks like he attacked the counters.

Crazy Baby Letters

November 18th, 2013 · 5 Comments

First people hung baby name letters from ribbons.  Now they’re putting the letters all over the place.  This one in Dubuque, Iowa wins the prize for craziest letter placement.

This one in Glendale, Arizona ditched the ribbon in favor of a distressed finish design while maintaining the up and down wall placement.

This Mesa, Arizona mom glued painted wood flowers (purchased at Hobby Lobby) on her kid’s letters.  Sniffing glue fumes made her disoriented, so the letters were hung crooked.
