The Talley Playhouse!


My sister and brother in law have one of the most interesting homes I have ever seen!
They are both collectors extraordinaire!


Mike loves vintage toys.......


trains...........

planes.......


 and especially DINOSAURS!!


He has all things SINCLAIR!


This room is a collector's DREAM!!


Mike is also a history buff!


You could spend hours and hours simply looking!
As a matter of fact......every Friday when I am over there I linger in THIS room!


Right outside the back door is a small pond area where they have created their very own
'Land Before Time.'


It is just outside this window!


He has all sorts of fossils and petrified wood......




Everywhere I look there is something UNUSUAL to see!


You can scope out this whole room from the vantage point of this vintage chair which is a family treasure if I remember right!


His newest collection is the set of Gone With the Wind Paper Dolls.
NOT that he would actually allow anyone to PLAY with these paper dolls.....they are vintage collectibles.

I have only scratched the surface of all there is to see at.......


The Talley Playhouse!

Thanks to Mike and Nita for letting me share their collections!
This is only ONE room!!
No wonder Mother enjoys living with them.
As she points out new things to show me each week she keeps saying over and over.......

"It's WONDERFUL!!"

It IS, indeed!!!

Wow! That's more than a collection, it's a treasure trove! What a fun room. My boys would love to look around in that room. I recall my stepfather having a lionel train collection. Thanks for the tour!

Linda, what an awesome job you did.
Great job of taking pictures of the cabinets with glass (no reflection)
Mike did want me to let everyone know he doesn't play with Paper Dolls. Thank you for your interest in our fun room. Can't wait for you to see what we brought home from the Glen Rose Fossil Mania.

It's like their own little museum. They could charge admission :)

I'll bet you always notice something new in there. I love the fossils and the Gone With the Wind paper doll collection

Tks for sharing!
