BDRMS: 3 BATH: 2, ALTARS: 6

There's something out there for everyone! Buddhist (and slightly tipsy)?


Catholic?


You're covered!

(The bottom house was found by Emily, who saw it here.)

All I could think is that they must of done some bad stuff in this life or the last and they must be trying to ward off the bad karma that is due to them.

Hmmmm...

Yeeks! That bottom one (the Catholic one) is quite scary!! I especially like the crucifix beside the toilet though. That is a nice touch.

After all Jesus went through in his life, is it really fair to place him next to the toilet?

Kara said...

(I was trying to find something funny to say about the cross by the toilet, but I don't think it came across that way, so never mind.) :)

Call me a prude, but I don't know if I really want Dead Jesus® watching me use the bathroom.

That's just me though. Some may find comfort in such things.

We relocated to the Dallas area this past summer. We looked at quite a few homes and I kid you not nearly every one of them had at least one wall covered in crosses. Prior to looking in Dallas we also looked in Austin--same thing. So I wasn't too surprised to see that this house was in Texas.

It's obvious that they are trying to ward off all of the evil spirits - including those nasty wine Gods who live on bathroom sinks.

Note to self - move wine bottle to kitchen.

The only thing missing is the priest performing the exorcism. Or maybe he's come and gone and they're just covering all bases...

After moving to the deep bible belt south (Georgia) last year from the God?-Who? Northwest... this kind of thing has gone from scary, to eye rolling, to every day. Not in my house though. :)

The toilet seat faux-fur cover that perfectly matches the crucifix is an especially nice touch.

I'm ALL for religion, but RIGHT by the toilet?

Stuart said...

My first thought was simply "Holy crap!", but then I realized that I have way too much tact and decorum to post something that lame.

That house would bring back all my childhood fears about God watching me on the toilet.

Brandy said...

Blarg, I just want one that isn't near a fire...

At least after today, there won't be any brush to burn... which means the fire bugs might start targeting houses instead of hillsides...

We're packed and ready to bug out if flames appear or the parakeets die... And at least we have power.. Some cities within LA city limits have been REMOVED from the power grid to save power, as today's fire is threatening the main transmission lines!

Jeez, Muslims would just shake their heads at the religious paraphernalia in the water closet.

Linnee said...

I wonder if the crucifix by the toilet family has any little (or big) boys. The boys in my house have pretty bad aim. On second thought, with all those pictures, statues, and kitchy stuff...probably not.

MuseSwings said...

I love the way the crucifix is hanging there right next to the holy water.

alnhouston said...

haven't you ever heard of "praying to the porcelain God?"

Forget the crosses...What's up with that little mirror right there next to the toilet at face level? Is anyone really so vain that they have to see themselves while they sit on the throne?

Brings new meaning to the phrase "Holy crap"

ptooie said...

If that backsplash in the Catholic house really is wine corks, I have some catching up to do!
The pictures though, on the tables... each table, they all face a different way. Do you think they follow you when you walk by???

Aunt Bren said...

"I pray I don't get hemmorhoids."
Maybe the little mirror at face level is to make sure they're not straining too hard?

Chitown Meg said...

OMG!

Monster Librarian said...

Ha ha ha...Gross...I don't think Jesus even wants to be hanging that close to the toilet!

I'm just imagining all the hole filling and painting that will need to be done to make the walls look normal again.
