The gorgeous green carpet. The luxurious green couch. The comfortable green chair. The coziness of the room. Contain yourself, buyers! [Hot Springs, Arkansas]

From a house built in 1970. Yes, there was a time when mirrors and cork tiles in a checkerboard pattern were trendy. These guys dared to be different.

Thanks to one of our readers, we can share this Dade City, Florida home with you. It was built in 1979.
The master bathroom features a sunken Roman tub, a mirror, dramatic drapes, and red plush carpeting.
This is the master bathroom.
The red carpet continues into the rest of the master suite.
Cheerful wallpaper will lift any buyer’s mood in the kitchen.
Step-saver bathroom. The toilet’s very close to the vanity in the 2nd bathroom.
The living room.
The dining room.

This delightful home in Penfield, New York was discovered by one of our readers. We are eternally grateful.
Take it all in. There’s lots to see. [Click on the photos to expand]
Let’s start with the Raggedy Ann theme room. Hundreds of dolls. Plus a mannequin.
Grinch Who Stole Christmas mannequin! Classic. Plus Cabbage Patch dolls, Christmas dolls, and many more dolls.
Doll clothes. Halloween theme dolls. More dolls. Take notice of the mannequin in the foreground. We’ll explain in the next photo.
The mannequin is supposed to be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. See her ruby slippers?! There’s also a collection of jugs on each stair riser. We’ll see more jugs on another staircase later.
A bedroom filled with stuffed animals, jewelry, quilts, and more. Now imagine this house totally empty. The rafters in the ceiling. The hardwood floors. The vaulted ceilings. This house is really nice.
There’s a lovely lady mannequin holding undergarments. Notice the E.T. doll in the basket of toilet paper. That’s because he visited Uranus? There’s another E.T. doll on the shelf to the right.
Another view of the bathroom. We have proof that someone actually used the bathtub (photo on wall). There’s a bedpan on the wall too. And the world’s smallest plunger that’s guaranteed to get your hands wet.
The kitchen has a sign that reads, “Two Choices: 1. Take it 2. Leave it” There’s a ghost hanging on the lamp (left side). A black cat (right side).
Another view of the kitchen. So much to see. The house was built in 1847. This kitchen would be so cool once empty.
The dining room is managed by two mannequins.
We’re halfway through the photos. Much more to see. Another mannequin! And wearing the latest fashion. Halloween decor. More jugs. More clutter.
Looking to the side, we see another mannequin!
This is the Ladies Room, filled with pink flourishes. Pink Christmas tree ornaments. Tea is served at 4.
Looks like another tea set in another room. And lots of dolls. And another mannequin, this time holding a parasol. Hats and clothes.
The other side of this room. A mannequin sitting in a chair. More dolls. Christmas trees. Now imagine this room empty. The beautiful wood floors. The fireplace. The tin plate ceiling and crown molding.
Another room filled with stuff.
The kitchen. No shortage of cups here.
Halloween decorations out front.
Scary Halloween decorations.
And no home is complete without a gnome.

Photos sent to us from Jennifer. Thanks, Jennifer!
Go big or go home, they say. Or go all out in your own home, as seen in this heavily decorated house in The Woodlands, Texas. Looks like a shabby chic gift shop/antique store.
The owner can’t figure out why maids keep quitting after one week.
Even the carpet is busy. The seller is sitting down in the bottom right area of the photo (faced blocked to protect the innocent).
Could make for a cool bed & breakfast. But when selling, might need to tone it down a bit.

What is that?
Funereal floral failure. Depressing.
Wallpaper wainscoting and ceiling border too. Ugh.
“New drywall” is usually a desirable feature. Unless it’s unfinished drywall. Thanks for nothing, Mr. Seller.
Got leaks? Thanks for not fixing it, Mr. Seller.

There’s nothing like the spirit of the Southwest to lift your mood.
Authentic Southwest landscape painting.
Back to a time when rivers flowed year ’round in the desert.
Cracked pottery! Always smashing. Shard not to like it.
Southwest décor lamps!!

One of my friends has a high-powered job in Phoenix and is well respected. He recently had dinner with a rich friend who asked him, “Why are you living in Phoenix? There’s no life there. And no culture there.” He criticized Phoenix as a nothing city. Nothing interesting. Boring. Why would anyone live there? He told my friend to move out of Phoenix as soon as possible. He told others at the dinner table that anyone who lives in Phoenix is not a mover or a shaker. No companies are headquartered in Phoenix. He said people just lead boring lives in Phoenix. And he ended his tirade with a question, “How can you be mentally stimulated in Phoenix? There is no culture. How do you find intelligent people?”
I guess I’ve got it all wrong for living in Phoenix. I’ve been missing out for over 40 years. Wasted my life here. This pretentious snob, by the way, lives in Houston, Texas.
So let’s see what Houston has to offer. Like this Houston home that’s currently for sale. Looks like it’s oozing with culture and life.
Just like the fans gracing the walls, I’ve become a fan of Houston. I wanna be a mover and shaker in Houston too!!
