Justine over at the tea chest and I were discussing collections recently. So we thought we ‘d share and hopefully encourage you to share yours. As I’m nosy and would love to see what people collect! Terri over at meadow tree style joined in – you have to see what she collects!
I can’t remember why I started collecting angels. I think because they were small and I could purchase on my travels. As soon as I made that decision I had a hard time finding angels while I was travelling. Sigh. The blue one is from Venice and Murano glass. The angel at the far right is from my niece when she was little. She decided it looked like her.
When people found out I was collecting angels I started receiving them as gifts. The glass balance one is from a friend (blue flowers on her). The lone sitting next to her is from my mother. The red stain-glass one in the back I purchased at a craft show at home..
So I don’t have many from my travels, which was sort of the purpose of the collection to begin with. I do have memories of people gifting them to me.. My friend because balance is what I needed at the time. My mom loved blue note the trim on her dress is blue and so is the butterfly.
The location of my collection is the top shelf of bookcase in my bedroom. This post had me truly seeing them for the first time in a while. They had become part of the furniture! To take the pictures I moved some to bring them closer together. Remembering who gave this one and that one. Oh the red one in the back is from my sister.
So thank you Justine as it was a stroll down memory lane. I haven’t gotten a new angel in years so maybe I have to keep my eyes open. As it would be neat to say “oh that one I got for blogging.”
Would love to hear what you collect and why. My mom collected salt and pepper shakers. A friend and neighbor travel spoons.
You can always start now!
