Question of the Week...
Do you have any special collections?
I was so excited last week when my mom gave me my grandmother's collection of souvenir spoons. I usually see those in souvenir stores and think they're hokey, but my grandmother had some really cool sterling silver ones that weren't hokey at all. My favorites of hers were the Statue of Liberty and the Colorado spoon which had columbine on it.
I'd love to show you some pics, but an hour or two after leaving my mom's house, I realized I'd left my newly acquired treasures there. (Thankfully, she's going to mail them to me 'cause I don't have it in me to drive another 2000+miles anytime soon). *smile*
I've started different collections over the years, but I never really seem to stick with the same object for very long. I have 8 or so demitasse tea cups and saucers that I love, but I haven't bought one in years.
I do have a huge collection of Christmas ornaments, but that's really all I seem to consistently collect.
So...what about you guys. Do you have any special collections?
