I LOVE my collection of buttons. I am a collector. Collecting brings me great joy. I often think it must go back to cavewoman days when herbs needed gathering while caveman did the hunting (or whatever it was caveman did). I bet every cavewoman loved, fondled, and often played with her collection of herbs.
Today I celebrate the word "collection".
Some play with my button collection
Would spring ever come? I worked through some glum feelings with my blue buttons.
More polka dots
Sometimes one collection leads to another collection...polka dots on a lizard
Lots of polka dot largartos from Mexico...crawling on the walls in the boys' lego collection room
While we are thinking of boys...I LOVED collecting the old Fisher Price Little People. When the boys were little, I even went to Toy Fest at the Fisher Price Headquarters in New York to meet other collectors. Way too much fun was had by bthe boys (and me too)!
Every one of these Little People are different! I took this picture, had them live in a box for ten years while the boys played with their Little People, and only just last year finally opened the box and let them go..into Lego Land..where a Little Person needs to beware of the occassional guillotines :)
My husband, Jim, often travels to Latin America. I have finally trained him to BUY STUFF!! We now have a very happy collection of textile art.
These are arpilleras from Peru
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my collections. I wonder what word will float to the top tomorrow???
