My favorite photo this week is the one I took of my glass animal figurines display.
I've been collecting these glass animals since I was a very small child. The large tabby cat is the oldest one. I believe I got it when I was just four or five years old. The family of chihuahuas in the top corner were from my grandmother, who actually had an entire pack of LIVE chihuahuas when I was a kid.
There are other "families" such as the English Setter with puppies, the family of three little pigs, the seals, the horses, and the frogs.
The wooden shoes on the top of the shelf were given to my mom by my dad during WWII -- he got them in the Netherlands when he was a soldier overseas with the U.S. Army. You can read more about that in my books "More Than Anything in the World" (volumes 1 and 2) available on Amazon.
I still buy glass animals (mostly dogs) when I'm traveling, as souvenirs, or just if I see one I like while out shopping or whatnot. Makes a great gift! lol
What, if anything, do you collect? Tell me in the comments!
