Goldilocks & the Three Beds

March 18th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Once upon a time, a little girl named Goldilocks got lost in the Phoenix metro area.  She was very sleepy.  All she wanted was a quick nap.

She stopped by this Phoenix home, but, alas, the bed was too high.

She stopped by this Tempe, Arizona home, but, alas, the bed was too low.

But when she stopped at this Glendale, Arizona home, the bed was just right.  Sweet dreams, Goldilocks.  The End.

Shelf Paper Used To Be Popular

September 14th, 2013 · 5 Comments

Some of us remember when you put shelf paper on kitchen cabinet shelves.  All those hours spent cutting and peeling and re-peeling when it stuck wrong.  And if you had an air bubble…
And then some people went even further and put shelf paper on the backs of cabinets.
And then you did the drawers too.  [Tempe, Arizona]

Creative Family Room Staging

This Tempe, Arizona family room is pure magic.  Harry Potter movie poster.   Nightmare Before Christmas movie poster.  David Bowie poster.  Lots of stuffed animals.  They made a couch out of old mattresses and then used pillows for the arm rests.

Inspirational Sayings

July 12th, 2013 · No Comments

Here’s our inspirational sayings for Friday.  Two of them.  Both from Tempe, Arizona homes.

“…with both hands…If ___ changes your life…promised it would be easy.  He promised it…”
Hmm.  Maybe it’s “remember to declutter the bathroom with both hands.  It (home staging) changes your life (more money in your pocket).  He (the real estate agent) never promised it (home selling) would be easy”?

Happy Independence Day

July 4th, 2013 · No Comments

Today is the Fourth of July.  Americans are celebrating their independence.  And sellers are displaying their patriotism in various manners.

American citizens have the right to clutter their homes.  Although not recommended when selling.

What’s more patriotic than the American flag, the Harley Davidson eagle, a gnome statue, and a chihuahua dog?

You have the right to wipe your hands on the American flag.
