Here at the Nickel and Dime, we have a decorator, too. He has an eye for the interesting and unique, so although I protest when I see one of his new "vignettes," I know we are on the cutting edge and any day magazine editors will be pounding down the door wanting to do a pictorial.
In the meantime I will give you a little taste of our decor, kind of like a museum and Ripley's Believe It or Not, combined.
Tom likes to repurpose stuff and his history classroom was a wonder of the campus. At Open House kids would bring their parents to see Tom's classroom decor, which was floor to ceiling posters. Maps, timelines, vintage movie advertisements and other popular culture signifiers were packed onto those walls. He brought most of them home and they are being used once again.
The guest bathroom is devoted to popular culture items, including old photos, posters, and articles from The Weekly World News , a tabloid devoted to wild conjecture, amazing stories about aliens and odd historical events that never happened.
|Lots to look at while you are in "contemplation mode."|
|Morally depraved youth figure prominently|
...and the stairway landing has an old time vignette which captures the essence of country life here at the ranch.
Have a great day, from all of us here at the Nickel and Dime Ranch.
