Display Home Art
Being in the process of moving towns is mostly joyless. There's the issue of figuring out just when to start packing away belongings, deciding what to keep, what to sell and what to take to the tip, whether to build or to buy along with all the financial and location issues and so on. In the endless trek through display villages looking at fresh new houses kitted out in presumably attractive furniture and advertised at deceptively low prices there is a glimmer of delight: the ridiculous state of the artworks and other finishing trinkets that are scattered around these houses to make it look like someone's home.
This is a brief chronicle of display home art. Apologies for the sometimes rubbish photos, it can be hard taking photos of bits of art while other people are also wandering through the house. I didn't want to come across as being too weird, so I tried to keep the pictures to when people weren't around.

This place was actually rather nicely kitted out, but then I have a fondness for weird Japanese art.
It also had a (totally non-standard) outdoor bathtub and shower, which was neat in and of itself.

Incidentally this place also failed to deliver the free icecream promised in their kerbside sign.
