I must confess, I am a collector!
Yep, I love pretty things, and I love to have "stuff"
Oh, I am selective. . . .just certain things catch my eye.
And let me tell you, when it does, there is no holding me back
I want it and I want lots of it!
But, no worries I come by it naturally. . .
It runs in the FAMILY. . . .
I spent 4 days last week with my
She is my Grandma Dot's sister. . .
She has most of the family heirlooms and a lot of her own
This tea-pot, sugar bowl, and tea cup and saucer
Belonged to my Great-Great-Grandma Susanna Pickering.
She had a huge collection of tea cups and saucers. . .
But, we don't know where they all went.
When Susanna died my great-grandparents only inherited
This beautiful set. I just hope who ever has the collection
Takes very good care of it and treasures it!
This is only a fraction of the "carnival glass" my Great-Aunt
Has collected over the years.
When the morning sun shines through the windows. . .
These pieces of glass look gorgeous. .
My photography couldn't capture the true beautify of it.
Great-Auntie also collects Salt and Pepper Shakers...
She has several salt and pepper shakers
That belonged to my Great-Great-Aunt Tabitha (Aunt Bi)
Great-Great Aunt Bi had a huge collection. . .
These are only two sets that Aunt Colleen has.
I even have a set. . . Yep, Aunt Bi's daughter gave several
of the nieces a set of Aunt Bi's
Salt and Pepper Shakers.
(Aunt Bi collected these in the early 1900's)
This little turtle set is one of Aunt Colleen's
I thought they were so cute!
Oh, there is so much more. . . to the collection
And more Collections.
Tomorrow I will show you a few of the tea cups
And also the beautiful paintings Aunt Colleen has done.
Now can you see why I say
It runs in the family.
This is how we all are. . . we love beauty. . .
Very selective in collecting, but we do collect and we
Want lots of it!
Be sure to come back. . . .K
I will be linking this to. . . .
