Are you a Collector?

When I was a kid - maybe 10 years old - we went on vacation to New Hampshire. I fell in love with the mountains, and the lakes. We stayed on Squam Lake, the same lake from On Golden pond. I've posted about it recently.

My mother loved arts and crafts, and took us to a wonderful place - the New Hampshire League of Arts and Crafts. There, I fell in love with handcrafts (well, I already did love those things, as my Mom sewed and knitted and made bookshelves...) - but handcarved miniatures took a special place in my heart that summer.







These bunnies were some of the first in my collection.


Which has grown over the years -


And I am always adding to it....




This is NOT the whole collection.........

Is there anything that you collect? I'd love to see!

by the way, there's a giveaway going on for BOTH of my shops - Woolies and Buster and boo - over at the rikrak studio.

Drop on by!

I am partial to rag /cloth/knitted/crocheted dolls, bears and stuffies, anything about animals, small wooden dollies,anything that grabs my heart...
