It's not you!

Name one or more things in your home that people are taken by surprise when they see because " it's not you ". So they think. In my case it has to be the framed Star Wars pictures in my office. I am a HUGE Star Wars fan, and people don't expect someone who loves feminine and floral things to have montages of Yoda, Darth Vader, and all the gang, up on their wall. My mother is completely baffled. She always backs away from my office, and speaks in hushed tones with my father about those "devils" in my little room.

A sewing room!!! LOL. I've never been the domesticated type - have been working since I was 20, in a corporate environment, so when people walk in, they're like "huh?"... um... dekota, what's that??? LOL.

Good question!

You are trying to get your DB arrested, perhaps? Or just stain his character thoroughly!

but I can look things up on the 'net! I too am a dragon (but I don't think that helps to explain why you and I get along - my ex was a dragon, too). My DP is a tiger! Yeehaw!

Is it open during the day? I am sure I would not recognize it!

not the stars, Artsy. I know you like me! I like you, too, despite that you are a Capricorn - you seem very cheerful for one living under a sign reputed to be gloomy!

What I wouldn't give for one of those smoked meat sandwiches & potatoe latkes...:( Don't remember the rooster though. Probably because we used to go at 3:00am hehe...

anyone who knows me! I am senitmental about some things (my teak indonesian screen that I received for my 16th birthday, the handmade rustic table my DP bought me on a romantic holiday in the mountains, the ceramic rooster that my sister brought me from Portugal that is IDENTICAL to one on a sign next to Schwartz's Deli in Montreal...) and I have many things which are entirely disparate one from the other.

My home is kind of like my personality, entirely inconsistent. My defence is that I am a Gemini and therefore inherently fickle.

yes! I have been thinking about getting new cushions for them, because like you said, the wood is pretty durable and good, perhaps sand them down and put a darker varnish on them. Was thinking of making them into temporary porch furniture for the summer.

Anyone seeing my 1 & only Barbie tends to raise an eyebrow...I always wanted one as a child but got Skipper instead- so Dh bought me one our first Christmas. She sits in her box- next to my desk:D

I've been hiding this one from all of you, taking it out of the room everytime I've taken a picture.
it's time for some healing I think, THIS is what I think is causing most people visiting us, to stop and think for a minute or five when they see it, wondering if I'm actually serious about the chair or not...And no, I'm not.
It was taken out of MIL's basement for us to have something other than our precious behinds to sit on while watching our "beautiful" retro 70's TV.
It's a horrible embarrassment, and I can't possibly imagine anyone else having furniture like this, if so, I apologize. :)
