I've decided to do something different, and frankly quite a bit more time consuming, than the standard collections page. Instead of just posting photos, or a list of my collection, I document the process of cleaning and restoring my entire collection. I share what I've learned along the way so you don't have to make the same mistakes I did! I believe that restorations should be done to help someone personally enjoy their collection, so I do what I prefer. The restoration decisions I make may not be the same that you choose for your own collection.
Here are current photos of my collection with everyone and all the playsets nice and clean and restored!

- Year 8 - Year 9 - Year 10 - Mail Order & International -
- Playsets & Accessories -
The best hubby in the world built my pony shelves. I use white business card boxes for risers. They are the perfect size and not very expensive. I totally insisted on the green carpet remnant so that it would look like the playsets were sitting on grass.
We moved back to Michigan after 16 years in Virginia. Now my pony room looks like this:
We will eventually finish this section of the basement to be my pony room again, but there is a ton of work we need to do on the parts of the house we live in first. I also love to garden and often have seasonal projects that are time sensitive, and we have family and pets and jobs.
I also always end up with a bunch of repairs I have to do to the site after Webstarts does an update, which is why so much text is now showing on a purple baground. Very annoying.
I do hope to update this section of the site eventually and get the rest of my collection photographed. It's not a huge priority, but eventually.
