@BKitty, thank you so much! The house was something handmade that I picked up at a thrift store that I added a back to and painted. Not sure what it was previously used for.

@pheebs79, that is such a great complement, thank you so much! The boston terrier print is by The Little Friends of Printmaking but I think they are sold out of that print currently. I have seen them do some different color variations so they may do more in the future. http://www.etsy.com/shop/lfop

@macayster, thank you so much! That piece is by the artist James Jean, one of my favorites of his. He has quite a few styles and is incredibly talented! http://www.jamesjean.com/

@jackiejgo, those are giant vinyl figures by Pete Fowler and toy is named Van Orlax. There were 3 different versions made and I think only 50 of each but I'm not so sure. They may be pretty hard to find but I know I saw one on Ebay not to long ago.

@Betty14, oh I completely understand. There will be a point where my collections out grow the room I have and I don't really like that much around me either to be honest. I hope to someday have a studio space large enough for most of it to be displayed there.

@Mattgomery Burns, that radio is made by Crosley http://crosleyradio.com/Radios.aspx.

@S.J.P., ha! That would be me but I move things around a lot so it's really not that bad :) Thank you so much, I'm so glad you like it!

@jensTHATgirl, those prints are by Richard Perez and I got them on his Etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/oksunshine?ref=seller_info but there currently is nothing in the shop so maybe you could email him and see if he has any left!

@leftofcentergirl, I have done that too, to a lot of my figures, with museum wax because if it's not an animal there is always a toy or two trying to fly off shelves :D

@los507, I don't have the vintage version of Benny & Red Bird. I might be interested but not sure where it would go at the moment, ha!

@hogtownmike, I agree with you on the bedroom, it's actually still a work in progress but is still going to be pretty uncluttered and very limited in "stuff" otherwise my brain will never turn off!

Again, thank you all for such positive feedback!!!

@Paul from MN, haha thank you! Oh believe me, the number of toys I have would probably unnerve most people! Oh, I actually wish I could change that comment a bit about the neutral walls. I actually prefer and still want neutral wall colors for those rooms I just have an issue with one specific color in our house that could be a little lighter beige or gray because in real life it make our hallway (not shown) and some other areas of the house a little dark.

@Orbit, well, I was not aware that lots of people say "furry children" I was just being funny because they act like kids...can't amuse everyone I guess :D

@Evan Nicole, thank you! That's awesome, what a fun job you have! I would love to meet you too!

@veggiemar, ljgfromof, is actually right. I don't mind dusting because I move things around a lot and when new toys or art come into my house things tend to get rearranged.

@Jennifer, I'm honored to have you in my collection! Yes, come and play anytime!!!

Thank you SO much everyone! I'm happy I can inspire people in some way!

@crazylikeafox11, I am :) http://rotocasted.com/saraharvey/ I also usually take pictures of my toys and put them up on Flickr here http://www.flickr.com/photos/multiplepersonality/

For all that asked about paint colors the teal is from Behr at Home Depot in Teal Zeal and I couldn't find the exact color but the darker gray/purply color is close to Behr premium plus ultra paint called Intellectual UL260-2.

@ofheart&city, they are from Urbanoutiffters if you can believe it. They were "artist" series pillows. The artist is Nate Williams and oddly those two pillows come up when i went to his site!

@blogkitten, I'm not so sure what color the taupe is because the previous owner had that painted, I will see if I can finds a can left over from it. I will post the other wall colors when I get home!

All of you have been so nice and I LOVE reading the comments because even though I love my house, I know it's not for everyone :D

@roxy, yes, calming is right. I haven't found the right artwork that I want to put in it and with as much stuff as I have I wanted my bedroom to not be overwhelming with "stuff".

@ablevin5, the cat bowl is this :D I LOVE it! A little pricey but I had to have one.

@ kanganinja, Luckily the cats behave themselves, they are kind of old now but there has been some incidences in the past, ha!

@annie-san, oh, I know, I can't imagine if we had earthquakes. Those baby's would have to be glued down!

Thanks all!!!
