September 4th, 2015 · No Comments

After.  From a different home, you get the idea of all the nail holes that must be patched.  Buyers know the amount of work and paint needed to repair a wall and don’t like it.  Why make buyers fix the holes?  Better to remove the photos, patch the holes, and repaint the wall before selling.

Incorrect Display of the American Flag

June 14th, 2015 · No Comments

Today is Flag Day.  Let’s show some respect to our flag.  The blue field should be displayed in the upper left corner.  This cluttered house has it backward.

Wrong.

48 stars, 10 stripes, and displayed incorrectly.  Triple fail.

Displayed correctly inside, but citizens will see it backward when outside.  Even James Bond knows that.

Wall o’ Mirrors

There was a time when mirror tiles covered entire walls.  [Houston, Texas]

It’s a reflection of the times.

They added faux brick (bric-a-brac) to jazz up the mirrors.
