This decorative vase/sculpture was a gift given to Allee from Richard Simmons. I met him once and that’s all I’ll say here…..

These just kill me!

This girlie vase I just die for!

I love this palet clock but love even more that some of the “numbers” fell off and Allee substitued them with buttons!

    That vase in photo one is probably one of the more expensive things in the house. Richard gave it to me in 1981 when we were recording his “Reach” LP. I was supposed to have lunch with him a few weeks ago but had to cancel. I think our rain date is next week.

    I believe I got the bowling pin coasters for a quarter at the Long Beach swap meet about 20 years ago. I pretty much pick up anything that has bowling as a motif.

    The girly vase is actually a glass, although I use it as a vase all the time. It’s kind of sloppily made – look at the extra little point coming off of her left foot and how the ball of her right foot has an extra little appendage. This, of course, makes me love her more. And I really love how bright gold she is.

    The artist palette clock is one of my favorite things ever. It’s right in my living room and you see it as soon as you walk into the house. The first thing I do when I walk into the room is check the time just so I can stare at my favorite clock.

    Is there any way I can invite myself to lunch with Richard and Allee? On second thought I might spontaneously combust upon seeing 2 of the biggest kitsch icons of all time. Man…but what a way to go!!
