Dog Stars

October 28th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Most dogs are not included in the sale of the house.  So why take and include a photo of them?

This dog gets its own bedroom!

“If I sit still like the elephant, no one will notice me.”

“Stop drilling me to get up!”

“Remind me to return the power drill to the neighbor.”

If the dog won’t leave, then have the photographer move the camera to the right.

This property in Eloy, Arizona has TWO dead trees (above and below photos).

The dead tree adds so much to the curb appeal.

The orange tree is dead.

Two half-dead trees or should we be more optimistic and say two half-alive trees?

This tree doesn’t look healthy.  Why did the seller take a photo of it?

Optical Illusion

October 24th, 2014 · 3 Comments

This is a real untouched photo used to promote the sale of a house, just like 99% of the photos shown on this blog.  But what is it?  It took me a while to figure it out.  At first, I thought it was a sink drain with a cigarette butt in it.  Then I thought it was a door handle with the end cap missing.  But it’s something else.  Can you guess what it is?  And why did they take a photo of it?  [Answer in the comments section]

It’s almost Halloween.  You go on ahead and check out the creepy storage room with the sharp rusty saw just waiting to drop on your head.  And then the maniac will hack you with the scythe for good measure.

Hanging By a Thread

October 21st, 2014 · 4 Comments

Rods, finials, and hooks are now passé when it comes to hanging window treatments in 2014.  The hot new trend this season is using wire or rope to hang your drapes and curtains.

Here’s another view.  Tres chic.

It elevates this kitchen.

A few days later, we spotted another shovel used as decoration at another Phoenix home.  Right in the middle of the living room.  Now that’s a true statement piece.  Halloween and Thanksgiving are coming up.  I’m rushing over to Home Depot right now to pick up some shovels and then to Hobby Lobby for acrylic paints, brushes, and raffia!
