This week’s question –

Question of the Week: Do you have any fun collections (other than books)? - Suggested byPeace Love Books
I do have some other fun collections but I don't have pictures (maybe I can find them (they are packed away) and take some pictures later.  I had started a thimble collection a few years ago.  Sometimes I pick up interesting thimbles from yard sales off Ebay. I like them because the thimble is such a useful tool and they don't take up too much room. You can keep them in a little box.  Plus there are so many beautiful designs to thimbles.  That's just one of my collections. I also have a button collection that I inherited from my Mom. She used to have drawers and bags of buttons so one day I set up some mason jars and my daughter and I sorted them by color. Now they line a shelf and look very pretty.  I use some of them for making leather wrapped bracelets with beads....yet another post I need to do.  I'd better get hopping with these pictures eh?- Christinabean

  1. I like the thimble idea. My mugs took up way too much space -- at least thimbles are smaller! I've seen some really pretty ones, but I don't use one when I sew!

  2. Those are very interesting collections! I'd be worried that they'd get lost! Old follower :)

    Here's my F&F!

  3. That's a first, but a great idea for a collection :P I would love to see pictures of them!

  4. I used to collect thimbles when I was little after I found an old china one in my gran's antique shop. I think it was something about the delicateness of them that appealed.

  6. Your leather wrapped bracelets with beads is definitely a post that I would love to see, because I absolutely love beading and creating my own jewelry and I have a whole collection of all kinds of different beads. My grandma has all kinds of buttons and various sewing things that she collects as well, some of them are incredibly old and vintage and it's really interesting. I've seen some of the old thimbles and you're right the designs and patterns on them are gorgeous. That's a unique and interesting collection. :)

    Happy Reading and Hopping Through! :)
