Mickey's House: Not Just a Home. It's More of an Artist's Gallery (Part 1 of 3)

 Mike in Tucson, mortgage lender photo by Mike in Tucson, mortgage lenderHis name is Mickey.  (Not the Indian carving there on the left with the turquoise inlay); Mickey is the carver.

He started whittling one day, found he liked it, has an aptitude for it, and never looked back.

Mickey's home was for sale, and before I turned in my REALTOR license to be able to originate FHA and VA mortgage loans, I had the privilege of meeting Mickey and showing his home.

From the outside, Mickey's house isn't much different from the rest of the houses in the neighborhood.  But wait until you step through the front door!

The inside is a reflection of Mickey's passion to carve any interesting piece of wood he can find into what he sees in the wood.

Watch your step.  That Western Diamondback Rattle snake used to be a piece of wood before it met Mickey.
