Color Variations: Orange Floors, Salmon Dresser and Blue/White Chairs
Rumor has it that the last year the red roofed A frame was made (before the Pink Regurgitated Years), the roof was molded in orange instead of terra cotta. On my quest for just such a house, i located this unexpected beauty on ebay. the floors are as orange as orange can be. I like it. I dont love it, but its alright. UPDATE: On my 4th house purchased online, the roof panels were not the regular terra cotta, but lighter orange, almost as orange as the floors here. I photographed, but it just didnt show the difference. I just sold them for $18 to a person whos cat jumped on her A Frame and broke the roof. I had it as extra because I bought it seperately from a parter-outer on feebay. It wasnt much and if I didnt buy it changes are they would have been 'pitched'. The pink vanity has often faded to a really neat salmon color. I thought mine was the only one, but I see one online nearly every week. I wish I could find another faded to green china hutch like the one I was outbid on.
