    Default Ranchito Cascabel, a.k.a. Timmyland

    Just north of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Tim Sullivan has built Timmyland, inspired by the work of Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona, Spain. What started as a sleeping porch and a storage room has evolved into a rambling, otherworldly folly that has to be seen to be believed.

    (Ann Summa) Lupita and Bici stand in a tiny door leading from a pond to the driveway.


















    (Ann Summa) Glass blowing is a specialty in San Miguel de Allende, and local artisans' work is incorporated into Timmyland. "Once you decide you want a window, you look at amorphous shapes, and then it's just a question of options," he said.

    I was thinking it kind of looks like the Playboy Mansion Grotto on acid. (Yes I watched the girls next door).

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Very Wonderlandish and cartoony. I'd like to visit but that's about all. No way I'd live there. I love color, but that's too much even for moi.
