Santa’s Vacation Home In Arizona

December 21st, 2017 · 3 Comments

Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus enjoy the warm winter weather in Glendale, Arizona. They love having a Christmas tree.

Mrs. Claus made a Christmas wreath for the bathroom. She is mad at Santa for not putting out a new roll of toilet paper or replacing the light bulbs.

Sticker shock in the other bathroom.

Here is Santa’s man cave.

Their master bedroom.

Their guest bedroom. They haven’t had many guests lately. Notice the cobwebs.

Spare bedroom. Mrs. Claus has been meaning to finish those drapes.

The wallpaper gives their kitchen a homey feel.

Santa is offering a hand (and an arm) with the laundry.

Roy G Biv Returns

December 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment

It’s harder and harder to find a complete ROYGBIV rainbow set of carpets. Most home sellers are opting for earth tones in carpet colors or opting for tile or wood flooring. We’re stretching the color tints just a bit in order to showcase the full ROYGBIV range.

R for Red

O for Orange

Y for Yellow (orangy-yellow)

G for Green

B for Blue

I for Indigo (it’s as close as we found to dark blue)

V for Violet (well, lilac in this photo; please forgive us)

So they’ve secured their items in a storage shed on their patio. But isn’t the point of a shed to keep the items hidden from view? Now they have a cluttered patio with a giant cage.

Five Dirty Bathrooms

November 16th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Look at the dirt and hair on the vanity counter. Then look at the shower floor. Yuk.

Let’s start with the mirror and the shower door, thank you.

Don’t let the tile pattern distract you from the soap scum and rust.

A good cleaning is needed here.

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]

New Spider-Man Movie Starts Today

July 7th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Time for another Spider-Man movie. Along with yet another new actor portraying Spider-Man.

170707a

Will movie reviews on the Web be positive?

170707b

I stopped watching Spider-Man movies at the 2nd one when a cocky Tobey Maguire danced down the street. I felt it jumped the shark at that point.

If only home sellers had Spidey sense when staging and selling.
