Haunted Household

The Haunted Household is Christopher Niemann's cute and clever perspective on the creatures and critters that live in the home with us. Niemann puts a face on dustballs, crumbs, leftover food and any household items, making the surreal very real!! I totally love these.

Maintaining a home is an uphill battle. For quite some time Iʼve suspected that little goblins are sabotaging my efforts.

We try to keep our place tidy. I broom the floor, I sit back, relax and ponder my good work, yet …

… a few seconds later …

… ta-dah! One of those little beasts jumps out to mock me.

These creatures make life difficult in myriad ways.

I love pasta. But there’s always one straggler that stays in the pot and, once dry, will never leave again.

Another formidable opponent is the little crumb of whatever, which gets stuck between the two parts of our table top.

They ridicule my handiwork.

Even more annoying is that our dishwasher is always — always! — already full or not yet emptied.

There goes another remote.

I am always amazed at the diverse lot underneath the highchair of our toddler.

I actually value their reliability. The lonely playing card, the battery (that may or may not be charged), the mysterious key and the piece of string have been fixtures in the top drawer of the kitchen cabinet since I was a child.

My little household friends may be wicked, but they are dependable companions. And they are welcome to stay.

Except for you, T-shirt Houdini!
