I purchased three more fairly quickly and realized I had begun a collection. But I kind of had a "problem" with that because I don't like to collect things that I can't also use. Well, I have one exception. I collect Byer's Carolers which I put out at Christmas.
You can only have so much "stuff" in your home so I made the decision to collect only those things I could also use such as vintage table cloths, serving dishes, glasses, items for entertaining etc.
I eventually made a decision that I would sell the little vases. So "just in case" I looked them up to see what they might be worth. Upon checking out my first little find, I discovered it was Royal Copenhagen and selling for $50. Now I don't want to part with it. I guess I'll keep all four for now. But if I see another one I know I'll just have to snap it up! So I guess I've got this new collection and I guess that's how collections begin.
I'm sharing this on Blue Monday at Smiling Sally's.
THANKS LIVING Today on Veteran's Day I'm thankful for all those veterans who put their lives on the line to allow us to have the freedoms we enjoy. Join me in sharing what you're thankful for in the days up to Thanksgiving.
