Dos Visit Toby and Alex
My brother in law dropped me off on the snow-white street outside Toby and Alex house last January.
They greeted me on the porch and excused their new puppy Orabelle for jumping up on me.
I had met Toby at a vintage clothes store in downtown Lincoln Nebraska, as I was picking up a zebra brooch he commented on how much he loved animals and how his home was full of creatures in every size or shape: plastic or stuffed. dead or alive.
I did what anyone in their right mind would do: Asked if I could come and take some pictures.
And this is how it turned out. Please click the images for larger views.
The house is full of eclectic collections of vintage finds.
I love you more than zombies love brains
I can’t decide what is scarier: Pee Wee Herman in real life or as a doll
Toby and Alex are High School sweethearts and they collect dolls…
Since I visited Toby has got himself a Black Widow, that Alexs father had found in his garage. A NOT-dead-one.
A porch swing and a puppy in an unmade bed
I wish I had a porch I could sit on like that
Toby and Alex often throw costume parties and play cards
This might be the sweetest couple Ive ever met.
Bathroom overlooking the garden
…and a not so old Madonna
A box full of happy times, found at a flea market
..and here is one of them up close. It looks like a party
Love this place. Thank you for letting me in.

I LOVE THESE PHOTOS!! Sorry, didnt mean to scream that at you, but thats how I feel! Thanks so much for coming and taking these photos of our place. You’re the best! If you are in town over the holidays I have a friend that would LOVE to show you their place as well ;) Let me know!
Åh! Ditt sätt att hitta detaljer och vinklar, jag älskart! Fint typsnitt dessutom!
Toby: I´m so glad you like it. I did not want to leave your house. ANd YES! please ask your friends if I can come over. Hopefully I´ll be back in Lincoln for spring.
Å Åsa du e för go. tack
What a great visit! Loving it! Good you wrote is the sweetest couple ever cause their collection of stuff is kind of scary but mostly fun. I don’t mean it in a bad way only I love the vibe of sweet and scary in the same time.
Vilket fantastiskt hem!!
Isabelle! Yes ! And that is how it is at their house. All these scary and quirky things but so much warmth and humor. It´s like watching Twin Peaks and planing a wedding at the same time !
The photos are great – what an eerie, loving home – but Jenny, you comment “It´s like watching Twin Peaks and planing a wedding at the same time!” made my day. Hahaha!
House of dolls. Perfect.
I sure do miss you! :(
I want to be friends with them!
I wish I had a porch! Someday! A swedish porch with a porch swing … (and maybe a puppy in an unmade bed too). Great visit! Som vanligt. :)
I would like to marry the wall with spiders and bats etc on it.
Love, love, love these photos and this couple. Such eclectic charm. Gorgeous bats and spiders and huggable puppy! The porch swing and the tub in the bathroom are my idea of heaven. I’d have to lock the dolls in a cabinet when I slept so that they didn’t come alive in the night and kill me! Especially Pee Wee… Thank you so much for sharing these photos and letting me enjoy a slice of Toby and Alex’s life. It looks like a very good one. x
Jenny: I would def. put Pee Wee in a locked up place too.
It’s nice to see them being themselves for each other. You captured it. Thank you.
Jenny, seriously. The Twin Peaks/wedding planning comment is the funniest/nicest thing anyone has compared our life to! Thanks! Mwah!
Jenny: Toby! hah, Thanks.
Love. Love. Love.
Thanks for sharing. These are wonderful pictures. Great couple of young people..
