Collecting Dust…..

by Sarah Hawker on September 9, 2010 · 7 comments

Another dust collecting guest post- this one’s the work of my lovely mate Sarah over at Just Me. And… take it awaaaay Sarah!!

So the other girls have posted about their lack of dust collectors, I on the other hand have a lot… Can I use that as my excuse for taking so long to do this post Miss Lori?! LOL

We have quite a few nick nacks around the place.

First I was going to talk about my Swarovski cows, a collection I love that my mum has started. Then I thought they weren’t sentimental enough.

I thought about the Willow Tree figure and crystal angel two beautiful friends gave me when I lost a baby at the beginning of the year, but I haven’t had them for very long.

My next thought was my new age hippy type crystals (quartz etc), but really they’re a bit boring.

I have a few cows around the place (sense a theme?!) but while they’re dust collectors, they’re not sentimental.

So I sat & pondered, my eyes scanning my lounge room shelves & I saw them right in front of me & I hadn’t even thought of mentioning them before now.

I have four “pets in a bottle” that my hubby gave me for varying reasons. They are teeny tiny little handmade clay animals (maybe 1cm high max) that are inside equally tiny glass bottles.

I have a dragon, a monkey & an echidna, but my favourite is this little elephant. He was the first one I got & hubby said “it’s an elephant so you’ll never forget I love you”. Naaawww how sweet is that?!

Am laughing at the comment by @lacochran's evil twin – there is an amazing array of stuff to collect out there. I try to avoid it. Too many years with a 'collecting' mum. But I'm glad yours bring you such pleasure.

What I would like to know is who had the patience to make them so tiny and put them in a bottle. THAT is talent!
