Exfoliating Body Scrub

January 24th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Hot new trend in skin care in 2014:  severe exfoliation with shards of glass.  Just break a window, leave the broken glass in the bathtub, add some bubble bath, and then roll around as dead skin cells are violently removed from your body.  The ultimate spa experience can be yours!

Appeal & Stick

January 5th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Looks like these Syracuse, New York sellers applied peel & stick vinyl floor tiles to the walls.  They also taped plastic to the window to keep the cold out.

It Is a House

Believe it or not, this is a house.  It did sell for $20,000.  The value is probably in the land.

Nice first impression this Glendale, Arizona home makes.  A spade with a skull face plus machine gun and two hand grenades.

The rest of the bedroom doesn’t look better.

Bears & Guns & More

July 22nd, 2013 · 4 Comments

There are so many treats for you to see with this Mesa, Arizona home.  Click on each photo to expand.

Home purchased for $300,000 in 2007.  Sold recently as a short sale for $145,000.  In this condition.

That’s quite a collection of stuffed bears.  And a gun collection too!  And a safe.  And a 1990s valance with pastel colors.  Sure looks like a 1980s vintage Apple computer (see the reflection in the mirror).  A 1970s waterbed frame & headboard.

More stuffed animals in the next bedroom.  Plus jugs of water (the bears get thirsty!).  And a stethoscope (because?).  And dream catchers.  And fuzzy dice!!  So many fun things to see.

In the master bedroom, the bed is on concrete blocks!!!  Check out the dust on the ceiling fan blades!!  Arm pad is missing from the chair.  Ugly window.

And in this bedroom, Spider Man is wearing a cowboy hat!  Arizona Cardinals football bedspread and other items.  And then there’s a Denver Broncos football blanket as a window curtain.

In the family room, at least 9 persons can sit comfortably.  The towels helps absorb moisture; it gets hot in Mesa.  Prescription bottles on the left and right sides of the photo.

How many bedrooms does this house have??!  An unmade bed.  That weight bench seat looks like it’s cardboard.

And a room converted to a bedroom.  No wonder they have so many chairs and sofas.  Please note the bottle of rum on the dresser.  And then the bottle of whiskey next to the Sugar Pops cereal box and the skull!!

There’s seating for six persons out back.
