November 26th, 2017 · No Comments

#1 – You are sure to enjoy this refuge from the hustle and bustle of the big city. This is Camden living.

It’s a great place to hang out with friends and family. Parking is close by too!

#2 – An oasis in the middle of Camden. Close your eyes and imagine hearing the gentle breeze through the palm trees, while you rest in the shade and enjoy eating dates and grapes.

#3 – Ah, the sound of a babbling fountain. From the search lights flooding the yard with light to the corrugated metal siding to the brick pavers, this yard has it all.

Carpet Baggers

November 21st, 2017 · 2 Comments

Time to bag this carpet and get new.

Note to sellers: when the carpet is torn, that is your last call to replace the carpet.

If you are going to keep the ugly carpet, at least stretch it and cut the ends.

At least these sellers were considerate enough to keep their infant away from the filthy carpet.

First thing you see when entering this Houston, Texas home is stained, dirty carpet. [Note: this photo has been kept on file since March 2017; it is not post-hurricane]

The Nightmare Before Halloween

November 12th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Twas the night before Halloween and all through this house, creatures were stirring, including a mouse?

Now let’s take a look inside this Great Bend, Pennsylvania house. [Thank you to KG for sending us these photos]
Here we see a pack of cigarettes and an ashtray, plus sugary breakfast cereals.

Ashtray in the bathroom.

There is a child’s toilet in the living room! Dad is paralyzed with indecision: should he remove the toilet first or the Halloween balloon or unblock the front door?

And there’s the child! A little big for that training toilet. He seems sad. Perhaps because he’s not allow access to the balloons?

Party like it’s 1999. Or 1979.

Sorry, but that planking fad ended three years ago.

Band practice.

Like father like son. A drum set in the boy’s bedroom.

Cluttered kitchen.

Enclosed patio with dog and clutter.

These Hallstead, Pennsylvania sellers want buyers to keep out of the bedroom. [Thank you, KG, for sending these photos]

Pride of ownership.

No sign needed here. Buyers may be inclined to keep out of this bedroom too.

This bedroom has a lovely view out the window. You’ll have to trust us.

Creepy knives.

Happy birthday to all of us.

The living room. The chair has little booties.

The living room as seen from the front door. The sellers felt it was important to cover up the nice flooring with a rug.

The holiday canned food drive is off to a roaring success.

Twelve Back Splash Options

October 30th, 2017 · 7 Comments

It is popular nowadays to install a back splash in a kitchen. Personally, I think it looks too busy and visually distracting and unnecessary. Let’s look at twelve different types of back splashes, starting with circles.

Thin horizontal multi-color glass pieces.

Micro-thin pieces.

Thin vertical multi-color glass pieces.

Metal.

Random pattern six-inch ceramic tile.

Multi-size ceramic tile, almost a Versailles pattern.

Quilt pattern.

Brick steps.

Diagonal.

Floor tile on the wall.

Pastel mosaic with tile shards. [Thank you to our reader KG for sending us this photo from Hallstead, Pennsylvania]
