It’s Not a Trick, It’s a Treat

October 18th, 2013 · 15 Comments

This delightful home in Penfield, New York was discovered by one of our readers.  We are eternally grateful.
Take it all in.  There’s lots to see.  [Click on the photos to expand]

Let’s start with the Raggedy Ann theme room.  Hundreds of dolls.  Plus a mannequin.

Grinch Who Stole Christmas mannequin!  Classic.  Plus Cabbage Patch dolls, Christmas dolls, and many more dolls.

Doll clothes.  Halloween theme dolls.  More dolls.  Take notice of the mannequin in the foreground.  We’ll explain in the next photo.

The mannequin is supposed to be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.  See her ruby slippers?!  There’s also a collection of jugs on each stair riser.  We’ll see more jugs on another staircase later.

A bedroom filled with stuffed animals, jewelry, quilts, and more.  Now imagine this house totally empty.  The rafters in the ceiling.  The hardwood floors.  The vaulted ceilings.  This house is really nice.

There’s a lovely lady mannequin holding undergarments.  Notice the E.T. doll in the basket of toilet paper.  That’s because he visited Uranus?  There’s another E.T. doll on the shelf to the right.

Another view of the bathroom.  We have proof that someone actually used the bathtub (photo on wall).  There’s a bedpan on the wall too.  And the world’s smallest plunger that’s guaranteed to get your hands wet.

The kitchen has a sign that reads, “Two Choices:  1. Take it  2. Leave it”  There’s a ghost hanging on the lamp (left side).  A black cat (right side).

Another view of the kitchen.  So much to see.  The house was built in 1847.  This kitchen would be so cool once empty.

The dining room is managed by two mannequins.

We’re halfway through the photos.  Much more to see.  Another mannequin!  And wearing the latest fashion.  Halloween decor.  More jugs.  More clutter.

Looking to the side, we see another mannequin!

This is the Ladies Room, filled with pink flourishes.  Pink Christmas tree ornaments.  Tea is served at 4.

Looks like another tea set in another room.  And lots of dolls.  And another mannequin, this time holding a parasol.  Hats and clothes.

The other side of this room.  A mannequin sitting in a chair.  More dolls.  Christmas trees.  Now imagine this room empty.  The beautiful wood floors.  The fireplace.  The tin plate ceiling and crown molding.

Another room filled with stuff.

They Like To Go Big In Texas

October 14th, 2012 · 11 Comments

Photos sent to us from Jennifer.  Thanks, Jennifer!

Go big or go home, they say.  Or go all out in your own home, as seen in this heavily decorated house in The Woodlands, Texas.  Looks like a shabby chic gift shop/antique store.

The owner can’t figure out why maids keep quitting after one week.

Even the carpet is busy.  The seller is sitting down in the bottom right area of the photo (faced blocked to protect the innocent).

Could make for a cool bed & breakfast.  But when selling, might need to tone it down a bit.

Funereal floral failure.  Depressing.

Wallpaper wainscoting and ceiling border too.  Ugh.

“New drywall” is usually a desirable feature.  Unless it’s unfinished drywall.  Thanks for nothing, Mr. Seller.
