Nice. Is that yours? Little start but has potential! It reminds me of the sorts of homes I used to build in my Sims game. Just like playing with a doll house, only virtual.

A shout out to Slim and Gabby - new house yet?

Just wondering how your search went the other weekend and if you found what you were looking for, put in a bid, waiting or ~whatever~ !! We finally closed on April 8. :P We've been in and out of it for these 14 days, and it's a MESS - but things are progressing. I'll take my camera over this weekend...

Good luck with the search on Saturday! Had a scare yesterday that the HUD report wasn't going to make it in time, that has passed and we're 'clear to land' tomorrow afternoon (EST) at 3pm. Just had my final walk through prior to closing and d*mn, that place needs a good scrubbing! Good news - I'm ge...

Gabby, thank you SO much for sharing in my excitement. I know this isn't as posh or big as a lot of the homes people post here, but it IS period - even if it's tiny and un-posh. :) I will be sure to share plenty of before and after pics.

Purchase update!

Hi everyone - I'm closing on the ranch house next week!!! By the time we move, it'll be 7 months of waiting for deeds to record, ammending contracts, drawing up new contracts, and getting the 'senior mortgage' on the house 'waived'. April 8 is the date being tossed around to close. We'll be moving i...

A.H. Stock Cocktail Table/Bar on Craigslist (Maine)

Gabby - I LOVE that site! It's right up my alley.

I have a pair of my grandmother's old cat eye glasses, I've thought of having my script put in them. But they're black rimmed, and I'm thinkin' that's no so great for my face. So this site is very cool.

Thanks!

Thank you for your very insightful and helpful post, and for clarifying the 'route of delivery'. Most appreciated. What is the meaning of 'tambour doors'? Why is that coveted/special?

What a trip down memory lane. I went to Jr. High and High School in Gardena and drove past the one on Western ALL the time. My family was a Winchell's Donut family - so I don't remember actually going to the one in Gardena. I LOVE the toy you have of it!!! I NEED one of those!!! (the first pic)....

Local Maine MCM seller on eBay - how happy am I??

Finding MCM in Maine is a challenge. Bits and pieces of nick-nacks = fairly easy....but furniture (other than diner type tables) seems fairly rare in the time I've been looking locally. I did luck out and find a full BR suite of Heywood Wakefield locally for $600 via Craigslist. Go me! lol But, whil...

The Broyhill is gorgeous stuff, to be sure. Such style!

Mr. Wonderful and I keep our own bedrooms, so a standard double is fine for me. :)

No, sadly I'm in Maine. Otherwise I'm sure I could throw some business your way. lol
