Curb trove: police pedal car

I think at times I’m very lucky that my other half is such an accommodating fella. Doesn’t matter what sort of odd things I think up, he might shake his head but never says anything negative.
Not even when I am in my Curb Pirate mode and end up with another treasure. About 18 months ago, when my Smurg was only 6 months old, I found this amazing doll house.

DOLLHOUSE

DOLLHOUSE A

I know! The local graffiti brigade has been past, but it has potential! (I would make a great estate agent). It’s made of wood, with windows and doors that open and close, a gorgeous turned staircase and heaps of potential.

I have so far ripped roof off, carpet out, wallpaper of, cleaned all the windows and then painted the inside white. I have (well the boss did) covered the roof with the rounded end of tongue depressors and painted them red and am waiting for cooler weather to paint the window/door frames and carpet the floors.
Once done I will show how it looks.

Now last week, another curb trove was carted off home. The Police Pedal Car
POLICE CAR

This one needs a lot less work. Daddy will check the mechanics after which I will remove rust, recover seat and polish it.
One happy smurg patrols our veranda now

Off to check the Lotus seeds

    Oh, great finds….that car would be great to display bears when Smurg isn’t driving it.

      True too hadn’t thought of it, I thought it look really nice hanging of the veranda roof with a plant in it.

      Bears though might look nicer, or a couple of BF! Darn should see if I can find them a police outfit

    Love the doll house and can’t wait to see your progress. My dollies and GK would love something like that. Joan N in Illinois
