The dining room.   Kinda ironic that this messy house has lots of plastic bags to throw things in and an Oreck vacuum to suck up the dirt.

July 28th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Those dreaded knotted curtains are back.  And they’re badder, er, worse than ever.

Here they are from a different angle.

Knotted curtains are like a virus.  They spread to other windows in a house.  Notice the sloppy paint line at the ceiling.

We don’t luv knotted curtains.

People are now knotting bed sheets used as curtains.

Either knot them both or none.  We vote for none.

None, please.

For Your Consideration

July 8th, 2014 · 2 Comments

It’s a short sale.  And the seller is sitting right there, watching TV.  Is there anything he could remove from this room to make it look more enticing to buyers?

What could he work on in the kitchen during commercial breaks?  Clearing off the counter, sink, and refrigerator?

And clear off the dining table and remove the multiple wall calendars?

There’s room for improvement in the bedroom.

Must Be Mulled Wine

April 28th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Wine is usually served cold, cool, or at room temperature.  However, mulled wine can be served warm.  So if you place your boxed wine on top of a refrigerator, the wine will stay warm and toasty 24 hours a day.  Brilliant idea.
