I love them all. Okay, the dust, not so much.
I don't exactly know how it happens. I "come by it honestly", since my dear mom was also a collector of things! Something will catch my eye, like the Eiffel Tower paper weight I saw the other day. I thought to myself, "Hmmm, a paper weight collection...or an Eiffel Tower collection would be fun"! Fortunately, I suppose, I did not succumb to the impulse!
As I was putting something away in a kitchen drawer yesterday, I noticed another collection. It isn't big, and it is actually useful, but a collection nonetheless. I have at least 7 sets of napkin rings! Woo hoo!
Now of course, I have to show them off!
First are a set my dad made for me. Every year at Christmas, he made gifts for his "girls"! This included his daughters, his wife and several of her girlfriends! They are very precious to me!
Next, a set I bought to use at Easter, many years ago!
Last one for this post. These are a set of Franz porcelain hummingbirds that I purchased on our honeymoon, three years ago.
I'll post the rest in a couple of days!
