Buying a new house, I’ve discovered, is something of an adventure. There’s always something else that needs done, fixed, or changed. Doing it all at once is pretty much impossible, so I’m just plugging away at it all, getting little things done here and there. My next task, I think, is a new light for the dining room. After checking out some options, though, I’ve figured out that I have to be a bit careful in my choice. Otherwise, I might end up with a dirty optical illusion on my ceiling!

I’m not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, mind you, but I don’t think I want a pair of breasts on my ceiling every night. It’s funny when it’s on someone else’s ceiling, but not mine!

If this dirty optical illusion cracked you up too, make sure you give it a good rating below!

I have to say that I’m a big fan of wine. And beer and whiskey and vodka for that matter, but wine will always hold a special place in my heart. (Not that I’m an alcoholic mind you!) I love just knowing that I have a few nice bottles of wine sitting in my wine rack just waiting for me to pop them open after a long day. I know most of you other wine drinkers out there can appreciate a cool wine rack too, which is why I just had to share this awesome one with you today!

Take a look! See anything unusual about this wine rack?

Don’t see it yet? Look a little closer, particularly at the space between the two sides of the wine rack. Let’s animate the image to help you a little…

cool wine rack anim

You can clearly see from the neck and bottom of the bottles that this cool wine rack is in fact holding three bottles of wine. But, when you look between the two sides, the middles of the bottles aren’t visible at all!

So, how’d they do this? Is it magic? Nope, not at all. I think smoke and mirrors is a little closer, don’t you?

Remember that head scratching hidden panda in snowmen illusion? That was a tough one, but I think I found one that might be a little tougher. You have to find the cat hidden in owls in this image…

cat hidden in owls

This one’s awful tricky, but there is a hidden cat in there among all of those wise old owls. you just know where to look.

This image puzzle was created by a Hugarian cartoonist Gergely Dudas, who also goes by the name Dudolf. Several months back, Dudolf wowed the Internet with his awesome cartoon of a panda hidden in a sea of snowmen.

Let’s see if he can do the same with this cat hidden in owls! What did you think of this optical illusion? Be sure to rate it with the stars below before you take off.

Loved looking for the cat hidden in owls here? Head over and see if you can spot the panda in the snowmen!

Today’s upside down books optical illusion will leave you staring and scratching your head a little. Well, hopefully, anyway. It’s definitely an interesting illusion. Take a look….

upside down books optical illusion

Is it one book or two? Math or physics? Neither and both! It’s an impossible illusion! Interestingly enough, both physics and math make this upside down books optical illusion impossible. I’d love trying to thumb through these textbooks, though. I’m definitely going to be super excited if the kids bring something like this home from school one of these days!

I think these books belong on a very special bookcase or bookshelf, don’t you? Maybe this optical illusion bookshelf or this subtle message bookcase?

In the world of optical illusions, impossible illusions are king! I ran across this interesting impossible winter cabin illusion the other day and coldn’t wait to share it with you guys!

Check it out…

impossible cabin

There are so many different things that make this an impossible cabin illusion that I don’t quite know where to start. So, I’ll start with the tree on the roof. Besides the fact that it’s on the roof, which is strange in and of itself, the branches are also on either side of the beam on the roof. But its position wold make that impossible.

That particular beam looks like it’s running across the front of the cabin, but then it connects to the back of the building. The conglomerate of beams coming out the front of the building also contains a number of impossible configurations!

If you liked this impossible cabin illusion, you’ll love this crazy writer’s cabin optical illusion!

My father is quite the carpenter, and I’ve picked up a skill or two from him, so I do know a little about woodworking. Today’s wood optical illusion, however, does have me stumped. I can’t tell if it’s some sort of clever manipulation of the wood and grain pattern or if this image has been Photoshopped.

Take a look…

funny-impossible-piece-of-wood-optical-illusion

If you look at the right side, it appears to be two blocks of wood nailed together side by side. However, look at the left side of the image, and it appears to be two pieces of wood with one on top of the other or one piece with a notch cut into it.

The grains of both piece of wood match up seamlessly, which makes this illusion even more difficult to figure out. And, what about the hand in the image? I wonder if it’s there to cover some key piece of the puzzle that will show us the answer to this wood optical illusion.

What do you think? Good illusion or no? Be sure to rate it with the stars below, then weigh in with your opinion in the comments!

I’m sure most of you are quite familiar with the classic Rubin vase optical illusion. It’s an ambiguous illusion that can be seen as either two faces facing each other or a single vase. It’s one of the most popular and well known optical illusions out there.

There are also several variations of the classic Rubin vase illusion out there. Today’s illusion is just such a variation.

rubin vase in shadow illusion

The Rubin vase optical illusion above is created with an actual vase. Its shadow produces the illusion on the white wall behind it. What I found sort of neat about this illusion, though, is the shadow of the woman’s face fits into the shadow of the face pretty well. It’s an added element that isn’t really seen all that often.

Have you ever looked at an illusion, searching for something that was supposed to be there and had trouble finding it? Then, what happens after you finally find it or someone points it out to you? You can’t unsee it!

That’s what today’s illusion is all about. Not being able to unsee the hidden images after we see them. No matter how much trouble we have finding a hidden image in the first place, it almost always jumps out at us every time we look at the image again.

Allow me to demonstrate…

Take a look at the image below, but don’t scroll too far or you’ll reveal the answer too soon. This is a pretty difficult hidden image, but I promise you that there’s something here.

Now, what do you see? I promise you that there’s a hidden image here. And, I also promise you that after I tell you what it is and show you another image, you can’t unsee it! If you’re a normal, average everyday Joe, the hidden image will pop out at you every single time.

So, are you ready for the big reveal?

It’s a frog! Take a look at the image above again? Do you see it now?

If you’re still having problems, maybe the original image will help you…

Pretty cool, huh? Take a look at this drawing that stumped the Internet an tell me that you can’t unsee it once you find out what it is!
