Today is International Day of Peace.  This home is celebrating.

Do you know how the peace sign came to be?  I just learned this yesterday.  Ships would communicate to each other using semaphore flags.  Arm positions signified letters of the alphabet.  The semaphore letters N & D placed together created the peace sign.  ND = nuclear disarmament.  Pretty clever.  You can thank British artist Gerald Holtom for that.

So much stuff.

And if we step back some more, we see a suit of armor in the dining room.

What is that thing on the dining table?  It can’t be a real cat.  Stuffed cat?  Ceramic cat?

Time To Prepare 2013 Tax Returns

January 21st, 2014 · 1 Comment

It’s tax preparation season.  Many of us will be frustrated by all the receipts and paperwork necessary to complete tax forms.  Some of us will spread all of the papers out while selling their homes.

Please organize your home office before selling.  Messy offices can be taxing on buyers’ eyes.

New Season of Hoarding: Buried Alive Started Last Week

November 6th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Hoarding: Buried Alive TV show on TLC started its new season last Wednesday.  A new episode is shown tonight (it features a very dirty kitchen and a home with a rat infestation).

This Phoenix home isn’t quite at that level, but sure to scare most buyers.

They have plenty of toilet paper in the bathroom.

Cluttered bedroom.

The home office looks well organized.

Oh, look!  Another home office!

This bedroom looks inviting.  Inviting people to touch the exposed electric wiring.

Lots going on in the kitchen.

By the way, they are selling it as a short sale.  I hope the bank recognizes the effort they put into getting the house ready to sell.
