House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Talk About "Signature Pieces"!

What does your house say about you? Does it reflect your personality? Are you brave with your signature pieces or do you play it safe? (This is coming from someone who decorates with white, white and white!) 
This is a sneak peek into a house- full tour is on the schedule, so stay tuned- that is all about the signature pieces and playing bold.
"Go big or go home!"
Take a lookiloo:



When I first walked in this home, the dogs (besides the four real doggies) were the second thing I noticed. The first thing I noticed was that this is a fun house...fun people live here.
"Go big or go home!" 
This is a place to kick up your heels, have a brewsky and say "What the &^%$ is up with the dawgs?"

  1. Before I noticed the dog I noticed that HUGE AMAZING HARP IN THE BACKGROUND.

    I guess we all have eyes on something - and I think that harp is playing with the big dogs big time.

    Smart post.

    Now about that brewsky................

  3. The dogs name is Nipper and he is listening to "His Masters Voice"....He was the turn of the century Mascot for RCA. He sat next to a record players large megaphone for advertisements. When I was a child a shop by our house had 4 of them. This is one of the small ones. The large one was about 3' tall.

    1. You are absolutely correct! There is tag on the larger dog that reads "Nipper" and they are, indeed, the RCA dogs! You are good.

  4. I love the dogs - I bet they are valuable. I recognized him as the RCA dog right away. How wonderful and great use, especially by the window.
