MY NEIGHBORS ARE RESOURCEFUL OR NUTS


This is the view from my window at the building on the other side of the street.

Don't you notice something weird.

What? The weather ? Not the ideal weather for a Sky Watch picture.

At my neighbor's window.

Watch carefully her window-boxes.


No, you don't see.

You want me to zoom in ?

Voici la vue depuis ma fenêtre sur l'immeuble de l'autre coté de la rue.

Remarquez-vous quelque chose d'étrange.

Quoi ? Le temps ? Pas idéal pour faire des photos, c'est sûre. Mais ...

A la fenêtre de ma voisine d'en face ?

Regardez bien ses jardinières.


Non. Vous ne voyez toujours pas ?

Vous voulez que je zoom ?


Here, it is.

You see know.

The reflection of my own window and my balcony on her glass-window. No, just kidding.

You see now, what we use as scarecrow.

Voilà.

Vous voyez maintenant.

Le reflet dema propre fenêtre et du balcon sur sa vitre. Non, je plaisante.

Vous voyez ce qui est utilisé comme épouvantail ici.

Barbie et Ken, ...... naked. To scare little birds.


And her brown hair friend.....


That's parisian life, very sophisticated.

Mattel can switch to a new type of production.


C'est la vie parisienne, très sophistiquée.

Mattel peut trouver un nouveau débouché pour sa production.

  4. Hey Catherine, you inspired me to post a diametrically opposed scarecrow, with a link to yours.
    But mine story is sad, while yours is hilarious.

  9. LOL, that IS great fun, Catherine! What a brilliant idea, I've never seen that before! I think they are resourceful (AND a bit nuts), the plastic dolls won't decay, and maybe the children don't want to play with Barbie and Ken anymore. So use them as scarecrows. Why cloths? The neighbour needs a zoom to see them (-:
    About immersing: I would suggest let's immerse in summer, not it is definitely too uncomfortable, maybe we could do it together next summer!

  10. My girls won't let me do that. They love their Barbies. It's a bit nut but funny, too.

  12. Ou alors, ils se sont retrouvés sur le balcon parce-que le mari rentrait à l'improviste !?
    ;)

  13. That is too funny! do you really use them as a scarecrow or did some too busy children leave them outside. Now...if they really work to scare away the birds, I'll be putting them in my garden next year!

  17. Ha, That is hilarious. I've always been a little scared of Ken and Barbie myself. The building is quite beautiful and the "scarecrows" add a great humorous touch.

  18. C’est une idée originale! Si j’étais un petit oiseau, j’aurais sans doute peur de ces “crazy looking” Barbies et Ken! :-)

  19. I vote for nuts, myself! That is just too weird to not be funny! :)

  20. Actually I think the brunette is Skipper... isn't she like Barbie's kid sister or something?

    Truly you have amusing neighbors. I'm pretty sure that sight would scare me out of the window box!

  21. I wonder if birds care about scarecrows that are smaller than birds. Still funny though.

  22. This has to be the funniest post.
    Well spotted, Catherine..

  23. Barbie, always the anomaly. She is the career woman with everything, but more often than not she is without even the clothes on her back.
