Time for another collections post.
First I am going to show you the culprit that created this collection
This is a thimble of sorts that belonged to my Mother. I thought it was cute and didn't want to part with it but where to put it.........

Some of these I bought just because they were different and others I bought from places we visited.

We had a competition here in Virginia City, Nev.

The Lords prayer wraps around this one and it is pewter.

From my trip to Graceland

From one of our tips to Hawaii

Easter basket

Love is a invitation to dance

A trip to New Hampshire

This is a Swedish word that my Grandmother often said. It is my understanding it is slang word and similar to us saying something like "crap"

Forever relationship

No matter how you choose to celebrate Easter the point of the celebration is the forever relationship with God provided to us through Jesus Christ, God's son. It is beyond our comprehension and even a glimpse of a worldly example like  this couple leaving hand in hand from Easter brunch is a special blessing.

My find

Yesterday I went to my favorite used store and look what I found
I just thought this would be a great take along knitting bag ..... it is unique

has zippered inside pockets
and magnetic snaps

I see that there is a little  paint coming off and one snap needs to be sewed back down but was a deal:) Now I'll be styling as well as knitting.
