Mora Clocks: The Silent Sentry

Well, maybe they tick.

I have fallen in love with Mora Clocks.  I know that the term "Mora" is used loosely these days and it tends to gather up anything Swedish/French.  I don't care.  I love the height, curves, texture and whimsy it brings to a room. Even if there is just a hint of the design (as in the china cabinet a few pictures down) I love it. Maybe I can just hang a clock and draw the rest of it on the wall :-)  The price tag would be much cheaper, and by now we all know the hubs likes the price of "cheap".

Vanity Stool No. 1: Before and After

I bought 2 vanity stools at auction a couple of months ago (among other awesome finds... you can see the dresser makeover HERE) and I've finished the first one!  Finally.  The second one is right behind it, so I should have that one ready to go in a couple of days.

Dresser Makeover: Before and After

I bought this dresser (among others) at an online auction a couple of months ago.  Have you discovered online auctions?  It's total Crack.  I can't get enough!  I'm stalking a vintage drafting table as we speak...

House Stalking - 18

Welcome to the 18th Edition of House Stalking.
All of these photos were found on the MLS current listings.

When value engineering goes wrong.

Siegfried and Roy wannabes

 Typically, shiny large air return grilles are closer to the ground.  And not in the ceiling of the dining room.

 I'm so glad this homeowner got her nails done for the picture.

 When touring this home you can stay awhile... and get a pedicure.

 Come on it!  Have some wine.

 The Little Alamo

  Listing that your home has a boat dock is only a selling point when it is IN the water.

How do you take a picture of your home to put on the MLS? You drop your purse, keys and cell phone and back up enough to make sure it's in the photo.
