Quirky Collectibles is opening SOON.!

This is the old house they are using for their new business.


Here are the owners. Floyd and Betty Tightwad.  They seem friendly enough.

They do have a seem to have a variety of things to choose from.

Floyd has gone to a sale to get more inventory.
Betty is left to try to sort through things to set up the store.
Floyd called and asked if she was opposed to him buying
a Butterfly collection.

 And she said of course not, get it!
Wondering why he called to ask her.

However Floyd meant
The Goebel Butterfly Collection. This is the Stuarts Library new in box.

This is the Drawing Room all new in box except the Harpsichord.
The set is complete.


Some how I think Floyd is in trouble. This whole collection is not cheap!


So is she hugging him or choking him?

Beauty is in the eye of be beholder.

I saw it and fell in love. It spoke to me. HA!HA!  It sure needs TLC.
And to restore this Keystone to look original, could be difficult.
As I have never seen one in any different condition than this one.
I love the inside graphics. It is different than any other keystones I have.
But it will have to wait.
 I am still working on my beloved money pit, the money pit below!

New House........ is more work than I thought.

It is Huge! 64 inches long, 31 inches high without chimneys. Needs a lot of TLC.
 New wall paper, paint etc.
I have named her "The big House."
Which I realize is not very imaginative
Kind of like naming a Black cat, Blacky. LOL!
Inside the main house without the extensions
I have stripped the wallpaper in one room. Thinking of keeping the rest in the main house.
It will take me a while to finish this one.

.
This will be the kitchen once it is re-papered  and updated.
This was the kitchen, it was on the opposite side of the house as the dining room.
So it will be stripped, and re-paper, and will be a den
Both upstairs rooms will be bathrooms.
Sense they go on opposite sides of the main house.



I really have done some work on this.
 It now has a door.
I have finally decided on wallpaper.
I That was difficult for me.
I have 95 %  of the furniture.
I see it finished in my head.
Now just to make it a reality!
