    Default Brimble's Public House, a dollhouse

    Here is one of my dollhouses (I hope...not sure I understand this upload thing). It is Brimble's Public House. Brimble is the owner and proprietor. He lives upstairs in his "gentlemans quarters", and runs the bar downstairs. It is a sort of "Cheers" sort of place..where everyone knows your name. His Pub is the only one in the Village of Catterville, so is quite the social place. Tommy, one of the few humans who lives in Catterville, is the bartender, but Brimble is often "on the floor" at night, greeting guests, and chatting them up.

    Brimble is the son of OneEye'dJack, gnarly old cat who lost one eye to another Tom Cat in a fight, then, some years later lost his life to a run-in with a raccoon. Jack was a Alley Cat, a rogue cat, spending his nights catting around with the ladies of the night. Who knows how many kittens he fathered?! Heck, half of Catterville might be the progeny of old Jack!

    At any rate, Brimble decided he was going to be a gentleman cat. He was going to get off the street, get neutered, make something of himself! He came upon this abandoned building in Catterville, and spent most of a year cleaning it up, building the bar out of walnut, building the bar stools out of golf tees and bottle caps, cleaning the wood floors.

    One of his specialty drinks is the catnip beer which he mixes up and brews in the basement. It is great at room temperature, and just right, chilled....

    I can hardly believe the detail that went into these. What a great story they tell. Now Cat, what are you going to do with them. Just display them in your living room or dinning room, or do you have a special room in the house for them?

    Great hobby!! Good therapy for you and so much fun for others to see.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    I think she should display them for others to see. Maybe displayed at the local schools, each for a while, then to the next. And ONLY if they can be displayed behind a locking glass door in a glass case.

    Or some civic organization where they would be appreciated. Again behind glass and secure from everyone. Transporting them might be a problem.
