If you took one, I wonder how long it would take for them to know it was missing.
Actually I think a blue mirror globe would be the ultimate addition. That way all the existing ornaments would be doubled in quantity.
There is a house in Aspen Hill which by far outdoes this one, and on only half the lot size.There's another one which pretty much rivals that one, but I am afriad to take its photo and mount it, as it might break the internet.
Thomas you NEED to share thse pics.This one has ALL the holidays covered at once -- good for them. Self-expression is a dying art. If this where some snarky, "ironic" installation at an art gallery you all would lap it up. Would I want to live next door? No. But I give them credit for trying to create their version of beauty.
WashingtonGardner: Ah, I think that if I took a photo and mounted it to the Web, and the internet didn't break, I'd only be encouraging these folks by giving them free publicity. ;)Seriously, though: at the one place I'm thinking of, if you imagine someone taking about a thousand of those little stick-on convex mirrors that some folks put on their car rear-view mirrors, and then gluing them all over a lot of fairly large rocks, and then placing said works of art-noveaux all around the yard, you're getting the bare bones of the idea. Now, also imagine that they hang ornamental bird-cages full of rubber-duckies all around the yard, too. Now cut a couple dozen truck tires in half, jam them randomly into the middle of the lawn, and paint them bright yellow. Then paint the house a pale violet with pine-forest green trim. Except for the door, which gets the same yellow paint as the random truck tires.You'll have to imagine this, for now, because I Phear for teh intarwebs.The other house is rather more organized but not much less garish. Imagine a cross between a Mardi Gras parade, a Mexican fiesta, and a really intense fandom for the Ravens. Oh, and statues of various Saints all over the place. Even in the front-lawn gazebo.Contrast and compare with my yard. Of course, if my ancient mom wasn't living here, who knows, I might fill up the yard with models of obsolete spacecraft (can you say, "Skylab"?) and working particle accelerators.
You can see one of the houses to which I referred, in a very LARGE (5M or so) photo here.
