A Collection of Tribulations

Tue 3/18 Blog Prompt: My collections

Oh yes, collections have changed over the years. As a child I remember buying tiny dollhouse furniture from Macy's. The sofa was green silk and I just adored it. There were other pieces that didn't make much of an impact on me and I am sure that if we had not moved, I would have had additional pieces as well. Then there were the comic books. Superman and Archie. Those weren't so much a collection as a way to keep my sister and I entertained as we traveled cross country. But we had a stack of them.

Are my collections more refined now? Probably not. They consist of wine glasses, cross stitch patterns and scrapbooking supplies. I guess you could also say our dvds are a collection of sorts.

But through it all one collection has been constant and gets added to from time to time. My lion collection. I have pewter pieces, ceramic, glass, plastic. I have bed cover, earrings & christmas ornaments. There are prints, oils and watercolors throughout the house. I even have a picture the Nuke took and printed out on canvas. That was the last lion I got. I think it is time to go on a lion hunt.

I love the big lion! We have 2 metal lions on the each side of the stairs on the side of my house. We bought them from Virginia Metalcrafters years ago. You do have a bunch of collections!
