Those are fun. I would like to make this whole house over into a nautical theme with those kinds of accents. Sadly, probably won’t happen… slash

They don't look quite certain about the new fixtures. I, on the other hand, really like them. They seem to be in keeping with the new digs.

They’re very cool - small pieces of whimsy like this delight me.

The Pinky in the second picture looks a little worried that the crab might pinch her...

Start small. See today's pic.

Yes, the previous tenant, a single "retirement age" gentleman, added some surprisingly charming and creative touches to this small bungalow... before deciding to sell it and move to Mexico to meet up with his Ukranian girlfriend he met online.

It has been fun to keep discovering little details I had previously overlooked.

A crab larger than one's head would likely be worrisome to most of us! Or, to me, at least!  yay

Neat! Although she doesn’t look too happy about it. Shall we assume she is thinking about seahorses being endangered?
The previous tenant sounds like he could have qualified for one of those dumb TLC shows. xp

Love the seahorse pull, although your pinky doesn’t seem to share the feeling.

The Pinkie looks very concerned about the seahorse. More so than the one next to the giant crab.

Seems like everything's endangered these days, huh? Except for humans. The population ex˚plosion continues unimpeded despite the "deadly" coronavirus:

This particular Pinky figure, called Hana, was noteworthy among all the Pinky Street releases for her extremely worried ekspression.

Oh, that's neat! I really like those art pieces. I got one in the International Marketplace (da REAL one) of a cat. Unfortunately it was the only one in the whole place which meant I had to buy it from the very rude vendor who would never have got my business otherwise.
Anyway, she is dressed appropriately too! It sounds like this house has lots of fun details.

I got a couple, tropical fish and a sea turtle, at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, many moons ago.

21 December - Outdoor Shower with Ceramic Dolphin

The previous tenant left behind a number of interesting ceramic wall decoration pieces. This colorful dolphin hangs in a "rustic" outdoor shower. The shower needs a new shower head in order to work properly. As the house is not exactly on, or even particularly close to, the beach, I'm not sure what the point is in having an outdoor shower. Just part of the "near beach lifestyle," maybe.

Your previous tenant really embraced the beach hut thing, didn’t they?

That's cute too.  Outdoor showers seem to be a beach-neighbourhood thing, if the HGTV house-hunting shows are anything to go by.  You could still be sandy & salty after driving home from the beach, I guess.
Was the swap meet a different event than the flea market?  I really enjoyed my visit to the Aloha Flea Market, near the end of my time there, and that was the tipping point for my souvenir-acquiring, where I had to buy an extra bag to get it all home.  I also bought the bag at the market, and it would never ever be allowed with today's carry-on size limits... I recall draping my raincoat over it in hopes that would camouflage just how big the bag was -- and I got on all the flights with it  xp  LOL

...aaahh, memories.
