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.
