Do you see what I see?

I am always seeing these little pictures in our wood floors and tile and sometimes I wonder if other people can see them too. I have asked Ben before if he can see them but he usually looks at me like I've grown another head. I KNOW I'm not the only one! Tell me I'm not crazy! Who else does this?
It's actually a lot of fun, kind of like finding pictures in the clouds - I was so good at that when I was a kid. So when I saw this little funny today I thought to take a picture of it and draw in the lines that I could see so everyone else could see. So... Can you see it? I love how it looks like they are on the beach and you can see the horizon. LOL! I may have to delete this post later so people don't think I've gone completely mad. LOL! O.K.....Little Miss Crazy Pants is going to take a nap now... .
Edited to add: I'm so glad I don't sound like a total loon! I have so many more of these around my house, maybe I will share those too!

"grew another head". Thats funny. I get that look sometimes too. Probably give it now and then too. Youre so creative.

I actually see it too. Does that mean I'm crazy?! :)

Samantha, it's so nice to know that i am not alone in this strange, yet interesting fascination for looking at "things" differently. I have been known to stare at the floor for extended periods of time looking for faces, and such. The funny thing is I mange to find all kinds of interesting things in something as random as wood grain, ceiling patterns, different types of floors, etc. So, nope you are not alone!!!

I don't do it often but when I'm really tired or sick I see all sorts of things in the sponge painted wall in our bathroom. Does that count?

Melinda said...

lol! your not alone Samantha, you are not alone(sigh)I have forever had this "gift" and you probably won't believe me but I saw in my head what this picture was going to be before I saw it(weird huh?)
You tell your husband that you did not "grow another head" but are just simply blessed(I've been told that before)

Glad I let that out....
Melinda Gates(maybe your twin,lol)

P.S. I'm also glad I'm not insane.

LOL, hey, everyone has to find something to keep theselves amused througout the day, right?

Kim said...

I TOTALLY understand, I see things like that all the time. The random marble-y looking wallpaper in our last house had all sorts of faces and creatures in it.

I have done this since I was a little girl. At my parents house they did a textured sealing that had a "seal" in it. I showed it to everyone but only some could see it. A few years back they were repainting and stuff and wanted to retexture, but I pleaded with them to keep it. Thankfully they did. There is a few funny ones in my bathroom at home, I love the idea of taking a picture and drawing in just what you see.

No, I can see it too--- I don't think we are crazy! I usually see pictures in carpet! lol!

DangitAnge said...

YES! i'm not the only crazy one!! I totally see faces in wood grain or the flooring pattern and whatnot!

Familia Stilwell said...

Ha ha ha! You are too funny. Thanks for giving me a good chuckle. Yes, I saw it after I went back and looked at the first picture again. I love looking for pictures like that in stuff, too. I think it helps to keep us young! Have a great weekend!

Dawn said...

Oh my gosh, when I was a kid I could see the door leading out to our garage from my bedroom. As I lay there (supposedly sleeping) I would stare at that "wood" door and see all sorts of crazy things...one time I swear I saw Yogi Bear! No, you are definitely not alone *grin*

That's so funny! I used to play this game with my cousin when I was little. She had the US on her ceiling. My mom has a duck on her wood floors! I think it's good for your imagination!

I'm so glad you posted this! I hand dye fabric and I see images in them once they are finished! LOL And my friends see even different images in the same piece than what I pick out! :)

No different than seeing pictures in the clouds as far as I can see. Qnother endlessly enjoyable pastime on a sunnly day with a light breeze and fluffy cumulus clouds.

Sorry about spelling. My 19 month old son is trying to help.

Amy said...

Lady_MSnow said...

Nope...didn't see that one, but I know what you mean. I see stuff like that all the time. :D

Danielle said...

Candace said...

I totally understand. I had a bedroom door that had reoccuring monster faces due to a repeating knot hole pattern, a school door that had the face of a goblin from a painting of Dante's Inferno, and my hardwood floors upstairs have all sizes of eyes.

Hey, girl, I thought of you and your kiddos yesterday at church when we sang "I'll Fly Away!" :) Made me smile picturing that sweet video of them singing. Have a great week!

I used to lay on my back for hours as a little girl staring at the woodgrain in the ceiling. I think it's something us creative people tend to do lol
