      I have a 3 story Victorian and every wall including stairs is covered. If you can get 2 fingers between them you'd be lucky. And raising 2 God Kids as well 10 and 12 yrs. old. They don't bother a thing! LOL

    7. LauraJ27 LauraJ27, 13 years ago
      I was wondering if you could help me out here. I have a painting well I believe it's a painting anyway or a print of Bernard Buttersack. Have you ever heard of him? I find stuff on him but not this exact painting or print. It is signed and dated. It is called, The Last Sun Raise. I am just wondering if you know about him? Since you know you're paintings and such. ANY INFO WOULD BE HELPFUL.
      Thank You, Laura

    12. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 13 years ago
      LOL, That a old closet, didn't know what to use it for so I stuck a bookcase in it and stacked it with books. Dave

      Looks just like my house! I am a painter and a sometime art collector, plus I have some of my mother's painting and my fathers photographs. Every inch is covered with art, sculpture and books. I should upload a bunch of stuff to show you what I have picked up along the way.
    14. ozmarty ozmarty, 13 years ago
      Ah! looks like what i used to live like before moveing 4 years ago i had to sell of what I Called cubic areas to dealers who could not refuse at the bargain basement prices asked .I too never bought retail and picked up quite a lot in rubbish throw outs . I actually in the 70's rented a large mansion in an exclusvive harbourside suburb of Sydney on what I collected from those council throw outs - amazing antiques and books .silver and jewelery etc...

      Large center painting is Hugo V. Pedersen. Lights are the way I got them and stay that way. Its called a Coromandel Screen from China around 1910-20 period. Walls in red are all hand painted on paper and applied in layers. Each piece of paper is around 8in x 8in. Took a month to complete.

      Hey Dave, as concerns albums. I just opened all y Mom's boxes after thirty years of procrastination. She was quite the avant garde in the sixties. There are over 200 records, Janis Joplin"Cheap Thrills", all the Led Zeppelin's, every Billie Holiday, incuding multi album sets, every Nina Simone, Odetta, Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem, not to mention mucho psychedelic stuff. What do you think I should do with these albums? I almost hate to break it up because it is a musical history tour of the fifties, sixties and seventies(less so).... what should I do?? Thank you, Michelle Amieux,

      Well, well, well. I love everything you have and I have to say, I no longer feel like I have too much stuff. (Better described by myself as treasures). I have so many people tell me I have a problem accumulating too much stuff. BUT I SAY NEVER TOO MUCH. As long as I have a open space to put something, I have room for it. Thank you for sharing and I now feel like I am no longer alone!!

      I have to show this to my husband. He says I have too much stuff! After seeing your photos I will have an easy time convincing him that there is some room in our house for additions to my porcelain collection. Thanks for sharing:)
