Great Door Knocker

Nice solid brass door knocker.

They don't make these like they used to. 

More character than a bell any day of the week. 

Knock, knock!  ;-)

Trader Joe's Pineapple Plant

Cool plants at Trader Joe's.

Each one with a pineapple at the top. 

Wonder how large these grow?  

Fun plants for the home. ;-)

Short of Closet Space

So what do you do if you are short of closet space or if your wife throws you out of the house?

Of course, you hang your clothing on a tree!

Calvin Klein shirts too. 

I wonder what happens when the squirrels come out.  ;-)

Buddha Planter

Thought this was a great planter.

Beautiful purple flowers coming right from Buddha's head.

Serene in so many ways! ;-)

Cool Horse Heads

Nice entranceway with the cool bronze horse heads on either side. 

Let me guess, someone likes to ride.

My preference would be lionsthey're the king of the jungle! 

The red pillars are also pretty dramatic. 

Overall nice and novel effect.  ;-)

Inside The Golden Egg

Inside the golden egg...

Is a carousel or merry-go-round. 

Horses going up and down as the happy music plays. 

Take a whirl of a ride and watch the world go by. 

Wave to the all people. 

There is mom and dad smiling and proud. 

Who knew that's what was in the egg?  ;-)

The Beauty of Women

Great artistic depiction of the beauty of women. 

Simple yet elegant. 

Mysterious yet familiar. 

Intense yet tender and caring. 

Thoughtful yet expressive. 

Dark yet full of light. 

Natural yet sensual. 

Fantasy yet reality. 

A best friend, a partner, a lover.

Together a home.  ;-)

Artful Window


This is a special window.

Blue and white flowers around it. 

Surprised no one thought of that before. 

A window isn't just to look out of from inside, but also decor to marvel at from the outside. 

Windows work two-ways!  ;-)

Silly Pink Rabbit

You've got to really love rabbits to purchase this from the gallery and display it in your home.

Maybe it's good luck for procreating, since rabbits are known to be specialists at it.

Also people like to carry a rabbit's foot for good luck--where did that practice come from?

If the rabbit lost his foot and it's in your pocket then it doesn't seem like it was very good luck to the rabbit to begin with!

Who knows maybe it's the Easter Bunny?

Honestly, aside from Bugs Bunny 

What's up Doc?

And the cereal commercial about:

Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids!

I'm not sure who needs a six foot pink rabbit anyway. ;-)

Happy Living Room


I like this painting by Deb Yager.

I call it, Happy Living Room!

Love the blues and pinks and green and other images (starfish, shells, and seahorse) of the big, beautiful ocean.

Definitely, ready to take off my shoes, lay down on that couch, and close my eyes. ;-)

Missing My Dear Mom

I had the Yartzeit (memorial anniversary) for my mom this last week. 

Can't believe it's been 7 years already!

Came across this picture where I'm sneaking up behind her at the veggie restaurant. 

My mom was always so full of life!

And while she went regularly to work, she also made sure to took care of us and the home. 

Whatever time I found myself coming home from school or work, there was a wonderful home-cooked meal waiting for me, and the salad always came first!

After I met my wife, Dossy, my mom and dad welcomed her to the family with open arms and hearts, and then together with our own children (their grandchildren), we were one (extended) family. 

Mom, hope you and Dad are doing well and G-d bless you both in Heaven!  ;-)

Man Lamp

Gotta love this man lamp!

Probably great for your man cave. 

It stands on 2 legs.

Its spine is the electrical cord running down the middle. 

And the lamp shade is the hat. 

Sort of design ingenious. 

And during Coronavirus quarantine, it makes you feel perhaps like you have a little extra companionship. 

Even if it's just a lamp!  ;-)

My Blue Thumb

Oops! I goofed watering the plants this week. 

I got a new spray bottle from Home Depot and I put the Fantastic cleaner it in. 

Thinking about the new bottle, I accidentally picked it up to water the plants. 

I sprayed the cactus and immediately realized what I had done!

Oh sh*t! I just poisoned my cactus. So quickly, I poured water in to try to dilute it. 

I thought to myself how the plant would react and I imagined how a person would react if they drank Fantastic. 

Sure enough within a couple of days the cactus was reeling. 

But I think a person could probably recover if it wasn't too much, so I'm hoping the cactus will too. ;-)

Man's Best Friend

What a cute little dog. 

Little fur ball. 

Ready to play. 

Love for the family. 

A companion and friend.

We Are Family!

I like this definition of family:
Family means NOBODY gets left behind. 

We take care of each other.

No matter what.

My father used to say:
Blood is thicker than water. 

It's not just from the battlefield that we make sure to bring everyone home.

Home is where the heart is.  ;-)

Recliner Stuck

So yesterday, there was a huge pouring thunderstorm and lightening.

After a bolt or two that must have hit our power line, ALL the power went out.

That was not fun when sitting in an La-Z-Boy electric recliner chair.

Where the f*** is the safety release on this thing when there is no power?  ;-)

Copper Pots, Pans, and Bowls

Really liked this set of matching copper pots, pans, and bowls. 

Lighter than cast iron and conducts heat 5x better.

They look good and if coated with a non-stick substance are very functional. 

Not just as a wall hanging but on the stove. ;-)
