WELCOME TO MY HOME

i’ve nothing of import to share. tho, James The Gent came to the US for a visit and stayed with us for a couple of days! it was great fun and it was so cool to get to know him! A dashing, charming, genuine, funny and all-together way-cool dude — we hope that James will return sooner vs. later (and stay for a longer time!) …but, thought i would share a view of me and B’s home in current state as of August 2009 in The Richmond District of San Francisco!

…now, my picture is sideways, but apply some orientation imagination and you get the idea. The bathroom is to the left. I really don’t want to take you into the can, but I will show you my classy bathroom wall! …or, a portion of it. But, first the kitchen sink and my beloved Hello Kitty toaster given by my long lost pal, Milly.

…changed my mind. we’re not going into the john. No. Bedroom?

this is where B works which is challenging as he has to lie down in the chair...

…now, the bedroom is directly to the left of his desk, but last night was one of those fun-tumble-strappy-pleasure sort of evenings. and, sadly, that sort of evening does not make for an appropriate photograph the next morning. So, no. we shall not venture into the bedroom. sorry.

here are some random, up close and personal shots of things in the apartment…

Well, that is a glimpse into my home. Thanks for visiting! …please. do not disturb the gimp in the corner. thank you.

love and kisses,

    Lovely looking place Matty and cluttered with all the kinds of nick nacks I’d expect from you! Plenty of framed pictures, that’s for sure…I remember your previous open plan apartment which you spent all that time doing up – you’re happier in the area you’re living in now though, right??

    Just thought I would Let you know a little girl didn’t snatch your Cher dolls hair she is actually the Mego Growing Hair Cher and is the most expensive in the Mego Cher line from the 70’s great find
    Kudos~

  9. matty03 replied:

    Asriel! But, how do I get her hair to grow long?!?!?!! How o How?!?! Help!

    • Asriel replied:

      the Growing hair cher was made with a bob cut hairstyle … with a long bit coming out of the middle that you can fan over the rest or style around… she should have a key mechanism in her back that lets you wind the long part back into the body they even sell repo made keys for the doll often on ebay. Yours is in the original growing hair outfit as well and your lucky cause its pricey!!some well over $100 :p it was a popular doll because cher often had a bob cut on the show thanks to her lovely wig collection..lol the shoes are also common and thankfully not as expensive… your sonny also is in the original shirt but im afraid the pants are not original he came with a pair of blue jean bell bottoms and black loafer shoes … the extra bob mackie outfits are also usually easy to find but the prices can be high for some of the rarer ones if it interests you they can usually be found in lots on auction sites for much cheaper then the mint in box ……

      wow ..I kinda got carried away there but i hope it helps you … my boyfriend loves cher and has several of the dolls and outfits so i learned alot from experiance…lol
