I just happened upon a very amusing blog called Projectophile — written by Clare Fauke, a married Chicago mother of three and passionate do-it-yourselfer who describes her style as “Mid-Century Modern meets keeping-dangerous-things-away-from-small-children.”
Hence one of her particularly hilarious posts: “15 Mid-Century Modern Dream Homes that will Kill Your Children.”
Here’s a sampling, with Clare’s comments:
— That’s going to require at least ten stitches.
— This stylish modern mother is too absorbed in her reading to notice that all her children have fallen into the living room garden.
— For goodness sake, don’t send your kids trick-or-treating near a mid-century modern home.
And if you do a lot of your furniture shopping on Craigslist, as Clare does, you’ll appreciate her Projectophile post titled “25 Most Dangerous Craigslist Adjectives Exposed.”
Fun: You can’t actually sit on it; you can only look at it, or fall off of it.
— What a FUN chair!
