Collections

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"

Trip from Savannah, Georgia


Trip from Australia. This has a clay texture.


Couldn't ignore my home state.



Hand Painted ones

A leather one

Trip to New Orleans

Trip to South Dakota

Trip to Maderia, Portugal. This is a island and similar to our Hawaii.

More Christmas

I love the variety of styles and colors.

My sister lives in North Dakota and says, "Uff da" all the time. I picked up the phrase from her.

I love your collection. It brings back memories every time you look at it. I have lots of tiny ducks from the places my husband & I were fortunate to visit.

I love your collection - you have a lot of interesting and different ones. Nice size of things to collect - not that big. Or expensive.

You have a really good variety of thimbles. I lived in ND growing up and heard, "Uff Da", a lot!!

very unique collection and it doesn't take up much space! I say Uffda all the time..and I am a Finn that lives in Minnesota..where there are many Swedish people. I think of Uffda as more of an "Oh my" or a good word when you don't know what else to say:)

I just love looking at what others collect. The first one was a true inspiration. I like how you have collected from your travels. I am a rock collector of our travels which have not been that many. I put the date and where they came from on the rocks with a sharpie. Look forward to the next chapter. Peace
