I really shouldn't be doing this.
I should be packing our suitcases
ready for a week on this,
I can't resist joining in Suzanne's show 'n' tell
and I'm feeling sorry for myself.
I've had 4 injections into my gum this afternoon
because I managed to pull out a very old dental filling
(eating a stupid chocolate eclair toffee sweet)
and so it had to be removed and refilled.
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!
Anyway, back to collections......
They're everywhere here.
This is just a selection of them.
This one is very finely cut wood.
Metal hearts, fabric hearts, wooden hearts........
an antique crystal heart given to me by
DH Grant last wedding anniversary.
It sits in a printers block tray full of some of the inchies
I've made (and a few altered dominoes)
A tree of hearts.
This hanging heart candle was a birthday
gift from a dear friend.
The large wire heart was found in a shop in
Lyme Regis (hands up who LOVES Lyme Regis!!).
A spiced Christmas hanger from
Christmas too lovely to put away.
Above the stove in the sitting room.
Found heart shaped stones
(and teeny tiny rubber duckie)
in the bathroom under a photograph
of the children taken many years ago
at a family holiday at Branscombe, in Devon.
Happy days :o)
Naughty Mr and Mrs
have 3 hearts between them.
I started off gathering money boxes that looked like
old fashioned British pillar boxes
but this seems to have grown to include others,
including Random Cow and Zebra (best of friends).
Doctor Who stuff
as previously modelled by DH Grant,
a Dalek head
with fully functioning voice,
lights and 'plunger'.
A Dalek (which opens to reveal Tom Baker as
The Doctor and Davros),
a fully posable David Tennant doll as The Doctor,
a strange character from one of the episodes,
a mini Dalek encased in a plastic box to
ensure it can't take over the world,
a smaller David Tennant Doctor Who Doll.
Also getting in on the act,
a painted tile by DS Luke from when he was 10
2 random creatures with goggle eyes
and the rat from 'Flushed Away'.
Why, you may ask?
Well, they all have a place in my heart
and so have earned a place on the dresser.
I'm aware that I have many more collections
but I really must go and pack.
Another time maybe.........
