Let's talk collections. Do you collect anything?
I have friends who collect shoes (the decorative kind), some people I know collect shot glasses, water globes, pitchers and snowmen.
Me, I like Santa's and have about 100 Santa's that I display with my Christmas decorations. I thought that was the only thing I collected until I started looking around my house.
I never realized I have a slight teapot addiction. Now I've always known that I like dishes, you know the pretty plates with different patterns or an odd shaped or sculpted glass. But in looking around my house I have quite a few teapots! Who knew!?
I seem to have most of them in my antique china cabinet. Here they sit till I use them, usually on holidays or other special occasions.
This last teapot I got from my paternal Grandmother. She told me she bought it from a door-to-door salesman in the 40's and that is all she remembers. It has an removable centerpiece where you can place teabags or loose tea.
I also have some other odd dishes that I've inherited.
This little pitcher for milk for instance...
They are obviously very old, when was Prussia a country? It is Russia now. So these must be at least 80 years old, if not older.
I also have these 2 cup and saucers. They are VERY delicate, the china is paper thin. They have raised dragons on them. I got these from my Aunt who got them from her Mother-In-Law.
Another odd thing I've inherited is this little plastic Jiminy Cricket toy.
So it seems I collect teapots though I've never bought one myself. I do like them, their shape is pleasant and I do love tea!
Do you have any collections? What do you collect? Do you have anything odd that you collect?
If you know anything about my footed bowls or my little milk pitcher or any of my china, I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks for stopping by. Next week I'll be talking about 4th of July decorations and have a craft. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Be safe!
