Hey all, just had a chance to start pulling out all my "supplies" for the yard after spending a week cleaning up and trimming trees and pulling weeds. although its a small condo patio, it seems like it takes forever to clean and stage for summer!
of course this is only after one day and one night of lugging stuff out of storage, more to come......

this of course is inside,

old foot lockers work great for storage of cleaning supplies and tools as well as non tiki items, who wants to see pine sol and bottles of tiki fuel just laying around?? lol

the small wooden British ammo box works great as a mini cooler, it has a metal liner and can hold ice and several bottles of water or beer

Oh my...love it love it love it. True that it can only get better, especially with more Tikis. You do a great job of displaying everything.

had a chance to dress up my full size G.I. Joe last night and placed him for a display. of course, he doesnt stay outside all the time, he freaks out the dogs and when people come over, "who's in your backyard??"not to mention hes wearing a Pre WWII tropical Africa khaki uniform, Richard Simons shorty shorts, boots and helmet which doesnt react well to sun and rain lol

Where in the name of the tiki gods did you obtain a khaki British Foreign Service Helmet with a brown puggaree? Awesome.

Great job on the yard.

Looks great! Would love to see how it looks at night too. Some "jungley" Les Baxter in the background with some dim lights in the right spots would be awesome!

LOL i prayed to the tiki god of "´nexpensive reproductions" i found it by accident at a local surplus store near my house, it was white with a green liner, I found what seemed to be the correct shade of Khaki and painted the helmet then I used coffee grounds to darken the puggaree. the helmet was made in aof all places Vietnam, who knew? lol
yea if I had an original Id keep it in an air tight safe! every one Ive ever found was crushed or turning to dust!
The khaki Richard Simons shorts are actually British marked and the coat is a Kriegsmarine Tropical jacket, which I never let out in the sun
thanks again!!
paul
