Knot Again!!

January 7th, 2013 · 5 Comments

Ugh.  This trend of tying curtains in knots still shows up in real estate listings.  Make it stop.

Believe it or not, the knotted curtains look better than the ugly sponge paint and plastic flowers.

Dumb.

Ugly from both angles.

Why?  [Thank you, Mahler, for noticing the baby on the couch.  She covered her face in embarrassment.]

“Why knot?,” they reply.  Same room; different angle.

It’s spread to Gilbert, Arizona.

    Wouldn’t the larger issue with the first picture be “What is that on the couch?” Because it sure looks like a Rottweiler spent some quality time up there.

    As long as we’re looking at sofas…..is that a baby, covered with a blanket, on the sofa in #4?

    Odd and disturbing, whatever it is!

    I had drapes that were given to me, they were too long, so instead of cutting them, I knotted them up to where they should be and it looks nice now. At least I think so ! To each his or her own. Mine look nice like that.

    My drapes use to hang past the window sill all the way to the floor, now since I tied them up, they just touch the sill and I think it looks a lot better. I’m sure glad that I didn’t cut them.
