There are two fox faces on the ancient wooden floor of our bathroom, and years ago, there were rows of little faces in the floral curtains. The trouble is, once you've seen a face, you can't un-see it. It's there to stay. So those curtains were never quite the same, peopled as they were with all those tiny pink faces instead of flowers.
That's all. And yes, I have got better things to do. I'm just not doing them at the moment...
I spend a lot of time thinking I should be doing better things , but what the heck...just enjoy myself and play with the puppy! Lovely post . XReplyDelete
Puppies, faces on light switches...life in the fast lane, Frances!Delete
Pareidolia, it's called. As I'm sure you knew.ReplyDelete
I used to have an oak-veneered wardrobe which, late at night, had a dancing ghost in its door.
Thanks for that, Tim (though not easy to remember!).Delete
Having read Tim's comment saved me from looking the word up myself; I knew it, but couldn't remember it quite now.ReplyDelete
I am pretty sure that Pete at http://heidelbergensis.blogspot.de/ has written about it at some stage. Anyway, if you have never been to his blog, I highly recommend it. No matter whether you have better things to do or not ;-)
I'll look it up, Meike.Delete
Yes, I see faces in things too. When it's a potato I have to bake it as I can't bring myself to set about him with a peeler.ReplyDelete
Ah, but what about carrots, Patsy?Delete
I have absolutely no imagination for such things Frances. However you can doubtless guess what I shall be doing to at least one of my light switches when I have read this. if you ever stay in a hotel room I have stayed in then I'm sure you know what you are likely to find from now on. It took me this long to be young and I've never indulged in vandalism in my life. I think this is a pretty mild way to start my career.ReplyDelete
Felt tip wipes off easily, GB. Hardly vandalism...?Delete
What I lack in imagination, Frances, I try and make up for in dramatic effect. Sometimes (frequently, in fact) I fail. C'est la vie.Delete
:-) I just thought I would leave you a face on my comment. Have a great weekendReplyDelete
: ) to you too, Paula!Delete
I agree about once having seen it, you can't un-see it. Can't see any faces in my light-switches though (which are of different kind). I'll have to find my smiles elsewhere :)ReplyDelete
Easy once you start looking, DT!Delete
I like your foxes and faces, Frances. I have an angel on my wooden toilet seat.ReplyDelete
We have a Virgin Mary on an old chest, complete with starry halo!Delete
You're absolutely right, Frances, that once seen, the face is forever there! Love your happy light switch.ReplyDelete
You, too, can have a happy light switch, Rosemary!ReplyDelete
