I'm not sure why I always seem so surprised when Wednesday seems to pop around again. It's not like it changes from week to week. Yet, I'm still in shock when I realize it's Tuesday and time to write another Wednesday random blog.
So this week, the lovely ladies have chosen—Collections.
Originally, I was thinking…okay. Easy post. I don't collect things, so post over! But I guess I have some stuff that sort of counts as collections. But nothing like I know some of the other ladies do.
Anyway, collections. I guess it's in human nature to collect crap. I have started a few collections, but alas, haven't really followed through. I began collecting cute cookie jars. I have a couple of Christmas ones, one that looks like a bird house, and two that just have cookie inscribed on the side. But my favourite one—that I don't use because it's small—is a blue car. It looks just like a VW bug, lol. But then I decided I didn't really have room to collect these, so I stopped. Now, I have them on a shelving unit as pretty decorations.
I had started collecting some rocks, but then I moved—as in two weeks ago moved. And those rocks...yeah, they weren't getting carted around. In case you hadn't realized it, rocks are heavy. And the last thing you want to move are a bunch of rocks you could have gotten out of your backyard. So that collection is still in the yard at the old house;)
The only real collection I have I inherited. My mother used to collect elephants. And I mean the woman collected them. My daughter, Syd, now has the collection in her room in a curio cabinet that came with the elephants after my mother died. And wow, there must be over a hundred different creatures inside. Some are porcelain, some made out of shells. She even has some made from bone. I think she has one of the smallest, hand-carved elephants ever made. It was her passion.
I have yet to really get that passion over anything. I mean, I collect my books, lol. And I'll admit…I didn't give up my Stephen King books when I moved, but to me, a collection is something you have to add to. That fills some hidden space inside. I just don't have that, yet.
Hmmm, maybe I can collect cute men? I'd be into that. Hell, yeah. So if any of you have one to spare...
Okay, a lame post but there you have it. Please go check out the other gals and see what kinds of collections they have. They probably have real ones.
