Yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas todaaaay


I'm not saying they have bananas hanging from the ceiling. I'm saying they don't have bananas, so that's okay.

I'm also not saying that I can even tell what room this is. I think that's a stove, but does that really narrow things down?

(Found by Daniela. She liked the bathroom, but I got stuck on the ... kitchen?)

My house looked something like this when I moved in, especially the interesting chandeliers and the strange arrangement of furniture and appliances. And yes, the furniture was still there when I moved in. The previous owners were under the impression that they could just come and move it out a week or so after the closing. I did manage to sell one of the chandeliers on Ebay. So, there's hope for anyone really interested in this house.

glad you didn't feature the bathroom. To me, nothing funny there!

Mom's dead. I think the cat pillow did it.

Andra said...

I don't even know where to begin. I love the giant Pope picture, the garage (?), and the ultra classy cat face pillow. If I bought this house I would HOPE they would leave some of those gems.

I want this house so freaking bad. the wood paneling and pink bathroom really sell the place.

Mallory said...

The house SERIOUSLY needs an update! Reminds me of my grandparent's house.

This is definitely your grandfather's house. Only 50+ years of "collecting" could land you with this much crap. Plus, grandpa's eyesight's been getting worse for a long time, because otherwise all those clashing patterns would have given him a seizure. And judging by all the tchatkas on the stove, grandma never did like to cook.

What stood out to me here is the flat panel television. I had flashbacks of Back to the Future Part II - this one modern piece just seems so out of place in this house....

Also I thought the profile picture was an office when I first looked at it - another glance told me it was the kitchen?!?

I really wish people would learn to appreciate those Art Deco bathrooms. To be honest, it's really in great condition. It doesn't look anymore dated now that the new owner's "updates" will in 20 years. When that house was built, that bathroom was really hip.

I love these old homes, with so much more character than the cookie cutter McMansions in suburbs today with their contractor grade fixtures and paper thin walls.

Oops...*backing away slowly* I think I accidentally just barged in on that chair taking a bath with his girlfriend, the footstool.

almost any of those pictures belong here! The cat pillow though scares the #$%^ out of me!!!

Oh dear! I think I could smell the place as I was looking at the photos. You know the smell... that musty, dusty smell.

I'm kind of curious as to what the step stool in the hallway is needed for.

OMDG the flooring.... the flooring!

Firefly said...

I must admit that my bathroom looks like that... 1962 original light pink tile throughout... never been redone, ha! Actually theirs look better. Once you take out the gold trim in the "kitchen" and the green curtains, and whatever that carpet color is, it will be just fine! Really, 500K, what's the big deal?

Daniela said...

LOL, I really did get stuck on the geriatric equipment in the bathroom...I didn't even notice this lovely, um, kitchen? Cook-in dining room? I'm not sure....

Mary T said...

The pillow totally looks like an evil, human-sized cat is angry we interrupted its nap!

Aside from the decoration ('cause we're technically not here to comment that), I figure they could at least have closed the wardrobe's (is that the word? If not, sorry - I'm French) door on the 7th picture.
Although it does takes quite a while to notice it considering the cat pillow.

I was terribly aghast until I realised that this is a listing from Long Island. THAT explains EVERYTHING.






...now I know why it reminded my of my Aunt's house.

Now be nice. An old Italian grandma from Long Island has breathed her last.
