The Interesting stuff never ends at the Interesting home. I could show you Emily and Harry's carnival collection (and I don't mean carnival glass!) which you would NOT believe, and maybe someday I will, but right now I want to show you ideas which you can use for your own collections.
Emily is full of ideas. Harry is just full of it (just kidding, Harry!).
So let's continue with the tour. I won't say a word. OK, I'll try not to say a word. It will be hard. You just look and love all the ideas that will be coming your way.
I knew I couldn't shut up. Here's a couple of closeups of the above pictures. Two frames house and preserve beautiful pages that are works of art in themselves. Instead of never being seen unless you pick up the right book, they are displayed in frames for all to admire.
Another is a cameo, not closed up in some drawer or lost among other collectibles, but framed so its beauty can be highlighted.
Here's another charmer: an old, tiny doll that some long ago sailor carved during a sea voyage. How tiny is it?
The arrow points to where this little treasure hangs high on the wall. I'm not even going to mention what a wonderful use of architectural pieces this is because I said I wasn't going to say a word!
OK, you and I don't have a Civil War Era dresser sitting around but Emily does and see that chip the arrow is pointing to? That happened during the war, shot by a soldier through the window. It's a family piece so she knows the story is true. What history is in this house!
PJ, I put the Interesting's folk art here just for you. Aren't they wonderful?
Hey, there's Eddie Murphy making a call! He must have forgotten his cell phone. Hi, Eddie. This is a tall piece. I'm standing on the stairs taking this photo.
Oops, sorry. Don't know how their cat got in here.
Speaking of doors we saw the other day, these displays are behind the Rainbo Bread screen door. The antique with the crane inside it is one of those old-timey games where you put money in and try to grab some toys and candy with the crane. I bet their grandkids love this one!
