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.

Hot item for Fall 2014:  a decorative shovel.  Very trendy.

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!

Flooring Choices, Not Choice Flooring

You only live once.  Go ahead and install laminate flooring at different directions in one room.

Or spend a weekend installing your own mosaic tile floor.  Bonus points for originality.

Throw in some random colored tiles to add excitement to the floor.

Octagon shaped objects usually mean stop, which is what should have happened before installing this tile.
