Show and Tell Friday - Our Museum

Today is Show and Tell Friday so I thought I would post a picture of something we are having built on our property. We are very excited about it because it has been 3 years of dealing with the city through all their red tape and finally we got the okay to start building.

This is our Museum that we are having built in our yard. It's around 12,000 square feet and it will house my husband's Vintage Car Collection and some of our collections of Vintage Gas Station items, my Vintage Barbie Collection etc. The building is huge, 24 feet tall with a overall size of 165 feet by 70 feet!
I went outside this morning to snap this picture and to my surprise this is what I saw on the hills behind our building. I know all you people back south are saying that's nothing, but what you don't understand, it was 90 degrees here 2 weeks ago, it doesn't SNOW here in Southern California where I live. This is extremely rare. Remember all my flowers that I posted last week on Blooming Tuesday? Well, they look like wilted lettuce that was left in a too cold refrigerator!

Can't wait to see it when you have all your things in it.

What a neat thing, to have your own museum in your back yard! My son goes to Bible college in Lancaster, and they had snow - in the desert - on the college campus this week.

Congratulations on the building! It looks amazing and how wonderful it will be for your huge collections. I hope you will show pictures when it is all set up inside.
The snow is really pretty in the background. I know it is rare for you. It would be for us too, here in Texas.
Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas.

This is Deryk Dees's wife. Your home and yard and decor is so beautiful! You have great taste. I bet you wake up every morning feeling like you're in Heaven. That's cool you're building a museum.

When you fill your museum you will need to post us some more photos of what's inside. I think that would be a lot of fun! Sounds interesting.

Your snow is awesome, too. No snow here in Florida :).

You are always welcome at The Shadow of the Cross. Feel free to visit anytime.

Have a Merry Christmas,

Wow, your very own museum! Congrats!

Neabear said...

Wow a museum! That will be awesome. Will it be open to visitors? If so I want to come see the next time we visit down that way. If it is done. But then we don't know when we will be down that way anyhow. I will be looking forward to the progress on your new venture. How exciting!

Kelli said...
