More Collections...

Hi my name is Ann and I collect stuff!  My bro-in-law calls it hoarding . I ask you, how could it be hoarding when I'm giving an old tired worn "treasure" a home to live comfortably in with others just like her.  Case in point...I have a grouping of vintage crosstitch  pictures.  Sweet little pieces of work that  ladies from another generation spent a good deal of time doing with their fingers of love.  So when I see another one sitting on a dusty shelf or on the bottom of stack of frames at a thrift store shouldn't it be my duty to purchase it for pittance and bring it home?  A home where she is welcome and can find others of her kind. Why yes, I should and I will!  Enjoy...





Technical apologizes.  I know I'm not good at taking pictures and that I need to come on into this very techie  century.  I've only just begun taking pictures 2 months ago when I started this blog.  Hubby has always done the picture taking in the family. : )

Tomorrow is a big day, it's Friday and that means yard sales. : )  I'm taking my best yard sale buddy with me.  Our plans are to hit 2 yards starting at 6am, then swing by Micky D's for his favorite hotcakes, and then drop him off at school by 8am.  He loves going to yard sales and he loves McDonalds!

I hope everyone has a great weekend doing what you love to do!!  Keep checking TTT to see what we score this weekend at the sales!
Fondly~

Oh, how wonderful to have such a great yard sale buddy. That sounds like a perfect morning to me! I hope you find some fun things!

Thank you so much for praying for my sweet Peep. She seems to be doing well, though she still needs to do a lot of healing!

Have a beautiful weekend,

: )

I love old cross-stitch and embroidery samplers! I'm glad that you appreciate them and give them a 'home' !! Embroidery is an art-form and a lot of love and time went into those pieces!

Love your wonderful little works of art- I'm a big fan of handmade vintage items. My real weakness is handmade lace...

Caution: The first sign of hoarding is referring to one's self as a "collector" (please see opening dialogue).......

Ha ha... hoarding is way too strong a word for what you do! You're way too precise and focused about what you select. Plus, have you seen that new show "Hoarders" on A&E? YIKES! A hoarder you are NOT! Andrew and Tom must be cut from similar cloth...I can get T to do almost anything for a Mickey D's Big Breakfast. ;) Have fun you two! xoxo

My hubby was the picture taker in our family too. But I have picked up the cameras and started learning how to. Luckily my hubby gives me instructions and tips all the time. We just got some new lens for our Canon Rebel and I'm playing with it now.
