Looking to the left, we see…more junk.  Over 50 used tires!  They might need them someday, you know.  Bad roof too.

Pink Parfait

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Slip covers on the couches!  Pink and tan are an interesting color combination.

The table to the right of the sofa is crooked.  Please straighten it.  Thank you.

That pink carpet sure looks like it’s holding up well.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.
