I was sitting here trying to think of something new to blog about...I feel like Lyndsey a few weeks back...I got nothin'! Not much going on here but usual stuff. Everyone is having good days, thank goodness! It's our turn for good days! I was dusting the other day and realized that without starting them intentionally I have quite a few collections. Do you do this too? You think something is cute and you buy one and then you start to unknowingly accumulate a lot of stuff that you have to dust! Or, someone gives you something, say a thimble, and then everyone thinks that you collect thimbles and they start bringing them to you from all of these cool places that you wish you could go to! So...here are a few of my collections because I've got nothing else to blog about!
Tea Pots. Mom gave me the cute little green one. It belonged to my Grandma Ellsworth and I treasure it. Britt gave me the fruity one and Sarah bought the Blue Willow one on Portabello Road in London! I have lots of mini ones too but they are all in boxes.
So, I seem to be collecting these:
Thimbles: Mom gave me this one in when I was in college
It is hand painted and very pretty. Now everytime Dee goes somewhere I get one. Friends bring them to me. I gather them when I pass through exciting places like Idaho, or Moab, Utah!
But not here!
Been here (big deal!)...
But NOT HERE!!!
Love being here!
Never have been here......or here!
I seem to be gathering these...
I had quite a group of these monsters this week...
So, I made these! Yum!
Salt & Pepper Shakers, I'm gaining a few!
These little guys are my favorites (a gift from Nick and Diana):
OK, I did manage to gather one collection on purpose. Last year, for two frenzied weeks I haunted Mc Donalds and Ebay and gathered these little darlings.
That Wicked Witch was a hard one to get...don't you love the little details like the stockings and the Ruby Slippers? Oh NO! As I sit here and type I heard that McDonald's is putting them in Happy Meals again! Are they different than last year's?! Oh BOTHER!
There's one more thing I collect DAILY and try to get as many as I can!
Aaaaah yes! Many, many, many!
