Interesting features of The House of Tavolini

These are some interesting things found around our house over the course of the last couple months.

everyone has seen the car...but have you seen the people who visit the car (there are multiple)
Patriotic people, apparently.
Additions--these are even more apparent inside, as the ceiling goes from 12 feet down to just over 6 feet in the back room.
Fireworks from Turner Field--this is actually really super cool.
We're hopefully doing a mosaic tomorrow!

That's funny how the room gets progressively smaller the further back you go. That skull is awesome yet, freaky looking. I wonder what kind of animal it was.

Oops... meant to write roof =)

the skull looks like a little bear or badger or something - did you figure out what it is?

How old is the house? What kind of skull was that?

TavoLini said...

We found it under the house, in the crawl space. I honestly think it might be a cat. Tavo is leaning more towards a 'possum.

Original house was built sometime between 1900 and 1911--there was a fire in 1920 and most the records of houses from that time, including both our houses, were burned. Our neighbor across the street was born in her house and has lived there since 1911, and she said our house has been there since she can remember.

I am so excited for you that your house is coming so close to completion! What kind of skull is that? A dog's?

This is the first time I've seen the car, what is the story with that?

The Blonde Duck said...

I must know about the skull and the car. I'm curious.

buffalodick said...

The fangs look more like a cat or dog, possums have a lot of small teeth.. Lokked like a Ne-hi bottle..

tommie said...

That Nehi bottle brought back memories. I used to drink Nehi peach as a super special treat!

I love that blue chair the bottle is sitting on....did you paint it?

TavoLini said...

Katherine--the car is abandoned, but because we don't have the title and because it isn't on our just kind of sits there.

Blonde--see above for car, skull I think is from a cat??

Buff--it is Nehi!

Tommie--I don't think I've ever had nehi--do they still make it? I did paint the blue chair (and a table and a shelf) I went a little nuts with the blue spray paint one afternoon.

The skull is my favorite! ... does that make me gothy

TavoLini said...

alex--yep. Goth all the way. Go get you some black eyeliner ;)

Honestly, I wouldn't have touched it. My gothy man, Tavo, grabbed it and placed it nicely in the cupboard for me to discover.

(Luckily, I'm all cool as long as the critter isn't alive)
