The front wall. Door chimes. The longbell at left is connected, the rest are not. The orange cone is a fireplace, soon to be installed. At right: a key-wind phonograph, my Christmas tree, and a fiber-optic avian friend.

Good eye. This corner looks completely different now, the orange fireplace is out and it's full of shelves for my booze. The fireplace is out on the deck, soon to be in regular use.

Also note the fake fire in the fireplace. It's: an expanding wire mesh wastebasket from Ikea (black) filled with hollow porous ceramic elements from an antique gas fireplace, with a big "balafire" flicker light bulb down inside. Not realistic but looks cool.

Like the mod orange fireplace, huh? I'm not certain but I believe it's a Malm brand. I eventually plan to connect it for actual use...

Cool. I call the "swedish fireplace".

A note on the Christmas tree. It's one of those artificial pre-lighted trees that come with a group of blown glass ornaments, and I added a blown glass bead garland and an old Christmas light string. The bulbs in said string are all c. 1910 carbon filament types. There are two figurals, an orange and pinecone (used to be painted clear glass, paint flaking off now) and the rest are the standard pear-shaped bulbs with evacuation point on the top (a few clear and a few emerald green, one ruby, and one opal white, visible at top of tree)

WJ, if you like my chimes, go check out the website of KNOCK Doorbells. He's a friend of mine, who builds new long-bell chimes, and restores and sells vintage ones. His work is top-notch and his vintage chimes for sale are the best around. He's restored a couple of mine. I got a 1946 NuTone Symphonic, a high-quality chime with hand-tuned brass chime bars which is supposed to play an eight-note song, but was not working, gummed with congealed oil (NEVER oil a door chime!) and filled with filth and inch-thick dust. After a few weeks with him, it looks like it did when it came out of the box new, and sounds amazing, functioning flawlessly.

Thanks a lot! The one thing I don't have is a Colossus (you're very lucky) but them, I don't think I can afford one and, even if I could, I'm not sure I know where I would put it. As you can see, my space is rather full...
