in my room… it’s all in the details.

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.56.11 PMHey look… it’s baby ME!!!

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 3.44.38 PMSo, my new kitty Sebastian is the sweetest thing ever… and he’s a total monster too! Love him. My recently deceased loves Kiki & Joe never broke things… and I have a lot of breakable things. I broke more than they ever did. Sebastian loves to jump on anything… anytime… all the time. Lamps have fallen (the ones you see here), scarves and curtains ripped, ceramic pig (and other ceramics) broke to bits. So, after a couple of months living together he seems to be calming down slightly. During this time I’ve been moving things around in the bedroom. Changing things up a bit. I got rid of my headboard and foot board that I’ve had for like 20 years. My bed is now on the ground like it was when I was a teen. I’m kind of loving it. I think Sebastian and I have found our groove together. So let me take you on an “intimate” tour of my bedroom (Sebastian’s playroom) …

      The heart is a science heart to study… so it opens up and reveals valves and such.
      Probably from the 50’s. Missing the stand.

    I have always loved the fact that you share your home with us. Speaks volumes!
    But you know what I really miss?? A few years ago or so you would make these delicious desserts and share the photos of the food and then post the recipe. I miss that!!

    I always love seeing bits of your bedroom. Thanks for the grand tour! Special treat to see your cute baby photo! What is the STH mag? I’m not familiar with it. Great energetic kitty!

    Well, this is what happens when you take rough trade into your home, they have no respect for your precious things.
    Aarggh – you’ve got the Mel Roberts book, one of the few books that I never got my hands on. The prices now!

    I would love to have a book of your home with photos of the rooms and all the wonderful things in your collection. I love the mix that you put together.

    Wow – so many cool things! Thanks for sharing, Sissydude!
    I think the Al Parker pillow would be a huge hit at your shop, should you ever decide to offer it.

    Are celebrity dildos like Star Wars collectibles? Worth more if not taken out of the box?
