Variations on a theme. Come on in the water's fine!

Nicola, you inspired me! Bring your suit! Thank heavens we don't have to wear bloomers anymore. On the other hand with my figure It might not be such a bad idea. This is the pool to the Marx 1950's colonial house. I think it would hold water, but mostly it collects dust!

I hope those teenagers are watching the children carefully.


So dive already, we're watching!




I love miniature pools. How about the one that was supposed to go with the K house? Like a shark tank in the Hamptons. See it here from Mini Modern's bloghttp://minimodern.blogspot.com/2007/09/what-could-have-been-1-kaleidoscope.html .
There was this killer one mini Dork showed a while ago, she tells me it's here 3/4 down the page. Love you new blog, Mini! http://modernminihouses.blogspot.com/2010/01/thoroughly-moderne-henry-colbert.html

I think Paris Renfroe shows a newer one in his new collection. If you know where it is please tell me. Love the modern mosaic ones in the newer Lundby houses. The heat is on! C

all the pools are cool. I think the villa sibi (my favourite dollshouse) has a kind of pool too. a bath-house maybe?

Sunny days, Nicola

Oese the picture I looked at of the Villa Sibi didn't show the pool. I agree it is a stunning structure. C

Hello, Hello... Love the current photo of the ruins and the historic photos. Fabulous to learn. Now where is my bathing suit? After my swim I got some blog post catching up to do. I like the large print on your blog too. Easier to read. Have a lovely, lovely day CM.
