August 26th, 2015 · No Comments

It’s pretty obvious, folks.  You take the photo, look at it, if you see yourself in it, take another photo.

Is that a print film camera?  Why are there buckets in the bathtub?

We see you.  Can’t you see you?

Nice try, but we still see your arms and camera.  Try again.  What is on the wall below the sink?

Oh, lady, come on.  Hire a professional photographer if you can’t figure it out.

Not only is a blurry photo not acceptable, you’re in the photo.  Take another photo.  Digital pictures are free.  It won’t cost a penny to take another one.

Macramé & Latch Hook Rugs Were Popular In the 1970s

August 8th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Macramé was a popular craft activity in the 1970s.  Many different knots to learn.  Colored beads to add.  I helped my mom make macramé hangings when I was a kid.

Latch hook rugs were another popular pastime in the 1970s.  I helped my mom make this same Kachina doll rug in the 1970s.

Bedrooms In Disarray

July 15th, 2015 · 2 Comments

It’s difficult for some sellers to tidy up their bedrooms when selling.

Messy sellers are clueless to the fact that buyers judge a house by its photos.

Buyers don’t want to see chaos.

Or clutter.

Cornered Flags

June 14th, 2015 · No Comments

A famous quote from the movie Dirty Dancing:  “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.”  Well, these three home sellers put their American flag in the corner.

Did you put your flag out today for Flag Day?

There are a minimum of eleven American holidays, so putting the flag so far back in the corner would make it difficult to retrieve it easily.

Not cool when you hit your head while doing dishes.
