Not Short On Belongings

August 14th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Short sale in Mesa, Arizona, but long on the list of personal belongings on display.

Are you distracted enough by all the stuff to ignore the two missing tiles?

The closets are full.

The sellers ignored the ceiling.

Another view of the room.

And another view. Shoe‘dn’t the footwear be stored in a closet?

Stuffed full.

More ceiling damage.

He could not.

Kitchen islands are great for adding extra storage space.

Fine dining.

Too many cobwebs on the chandelier.

Missed opportunity to highlight the big picture window and vaulted ceiling.

One light bulb does not match the others.

What happened to the tiles by the drain?

Happy Fourth of July!!

July 4th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Today is the 4th of July.

170704a

Everyone is proudly displaying the American flag.

170704b

The flag is a symbol of freedom. Freedom to use it as a window curtain. Freedom to acquire and keep things (except when selling).

170704c

The flag encourages you to work harder.

170704d

The freedom to convert a covered patio into a living space and covering the fireplace with the American flag.

170704e

We are grateful the bed was made.

170704f

Happy 4th of July!

Flag Day

June 14th, 2017 · No Comments

Today is Flag Day when we honor the American flag. Except for these three home sellers who display their flags incorrectly. The blue field should always be in the top left.

170614a

Dog-gone-it! Another flag fail.

170614b

Ugh.

Hat Collections

June 5th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Hat collections are back. Hadn’t seen them for awhile.

170605a

All the hats were hung on the wall with care…

170605b

…in hopes a home stager would soon be there.

170605c

Enclosed patio with no permanent heating or cooling. Too hot to wear a hat in the summer there.

170605d

Amateur collector. Only five?
