Furniture With Faces

Hahahahaha, I said I was going to write every day again, but then I couldn't think of anything to write about. Anything interesting, that is. I mean, I organized my dresser drawers and purged a bunch of unused items. I paid my oldest child a coin for every time he ran up and down our stairs (he slept well last night). I made shrimp boil and and cocktail sauce, a recipe that might be worth sharing, but I didn't take any pictures. I think it might take me a while to remember how this blogging thing works.

I delved into my "Decor" files on my computer to see if I could spark an idea for a post. Before the advent of Pinterest (you can see my boards here:, I used to save web images to inspiration files on my computer. I still use it to save pics of second-hand items I am considering buying on Classifieds (Utah's more-popular version of Craigslist). I have over 70 folders in this "Decor" file, some with sub-categories. Most of the folders are normal things like "Chairs", "Dining Room", and the like. Then you have a few oddball categories. "Houndstooth", for instance (I used to own a vintage houndstooth sofa that I quite regret selling). Or my favorite folder, "Furniture With Faces". There are only a few images in the file, but they are worth a gander. Do you see what I see?

The last thing I want is my dresser staring at me while I disrobe!

More staring! I'm seeing twins this time. Getting a Tweedledum and Tweedledee vibe.

There are some quite-lovely things about this bathroom, which was in a Parade of Homes entrant in Salt Lake City this year...but, "Aaaaaaaaah, the mirror-eyed vanity is eating all our towels!!!"

Am I reaching here? At least I know I'm not the only one who sees faces in hardware. Check out this post on Young House Love to see what they thought about their kitchen hardware. Ever see a face somewhere? Maybe in the texture of your childhood bedroom ceiling? Just me? Aw, I knew I was weird!


  1. I used to find faces in my bedroom ceiling and Jackson is carrying on the tradition now. I don't usually see faces in furniture but I see them in the pics you had, funny! And welcome back to blogging, can't wait to keep up with you again.
