Collecting and my 100th post!!!!!

Collecting! Is there anything more comforting than coming into a room and seeing your collectibles staring back at you? I don't think so! I love collecting lots and lots of things and who doesn't love a giveaway? That's right it's my 100th post and I am going to give away a collection of things! It will be a surprise collection of old and new things! Please make a comment on this post! Let me know if there is anything that you like to collect, if you collect or just say HI!!! Don't forget, to post a comment on my blog, you have to click on the time! Since I have out of town company coming and time is flying, I will not have time to pick a winner until Wednesday, July 23!!!! Oh, I almost forgot, post about this on your blog and I will give you 2 entries!(you know, so you can have a collection of entries!)YAY!!!

Around here two or more defines a collection! However, right at this moment, I can't think of anything that I only have two of!(except, of course, my girls)LOL! We have penguins, angels, books(old and new), old cabinets, lots of really old jewelry, fabric, quilts, buttons(ones I have inherited and ones I have boughten), paper, rubber stamps, beads, thread of all colors, stuffed animals, winter things, we have lots of things just because of the color, you know like Lilli loves orange, we picked blue for Gayle, and I love pink and green! John, well, lets see, John collects magazines and glass things(he makes a living making molds for glass things)! We love trees inside and out and of course, anything Christmas!
Saying all of that I am only going to share one collection today! I love these gloves! I wish the detail on the pink ones showed up better! The pink ones are my favorites! The pink, the scallop edged ones, and the little pair are all hand made! Wonderful shape! Gloves and mittens have always fascinated me! Not sure why! But I love them!

Okay, don't forget to make a comment and help me celebrate my 100th post!

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I hope you have a wonderfully happy day!

The only real "collection" that I have is I collect the old hardcover Nancy Drew books. I used to love them when I was younger and in the past 10 years I have starting picking up the older ones here and there trying to collect them all.

Thank you for the giveaway!

I collect books and rocks. Sometimes I seem to collect yarn, but I'm supposed to be using that up too.

I have a hodgepodge of stuff-- books, dolls, plates, Betty Boop items,etc .......Bone china cups & saucers and small wooden souvenir knick-knacks are my favorite collectibles these days though.

Wowser, I just realized I hadn't commented on this post. I think I was collecting my thoughts on collecting and somehow got distracted. Story of my life.

Lets see, I collect PEZ, not obsessively but here and there. Doug and I also collect Lord of the Rings books. We are trying to get every paper back version, we also have hard bound 2nd edition. The older hard ones are really expensive so we just have fun with it, and get what we can afford. Doug gave me a replica of Bilbo's sword Sting for Christmas. I love it!

I have a small collection of little Vespa Scooter models, my dream vehicle. Oh my, a picture of you and Lilli flying around on one just entered my head. Adorable! :) I love anything vintage as well. I am quite the pack rat. Oh, we also collect gargoyles. Each one has a story and meaning. I love that.

Great post! Love you guys! Have a great week. Love Stacy
