Collecting Smalls

Hello out there!
I'm back to blogging after being away for the past couple of days.
I've been out and about enjoying the unusually warm weather.
On Saturday I was out treasure hunting with my husband as we  do most weekends.
We've gotten to the point where we have to purge something from our home each time we bring in something new. The clutter makes me nervous, so I'm doing my best to keep it under control, but our love of antiques is making it difficult. If it gets any worse, we may have to open a shop of our own.
I was careful to bring home only tiny items this time as they take up less space.
The first thing I found was this sweet little glass cloche.
If you look closely you can see a pearl inside.
This gives you an idea of how small this cloche is.
I'm thinking of using it to display a tiny birds nest with some tiny eggs.

Next I found this tiny piece of pottery.
It can hold a tea light or maybe some beads for jewelry making.
Flower frogs make the best little displays for photos.
This one is small enough to hold a postage stamp.

In fact I think it may be just right for that little glass cloche.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with this aluminum top hat, but it was just too cute to pass up.

If you've never gone junkin you should try it sometime.
Just be careful.
It's addicting.

Don't forget tomorrow is "Groundhog Day".
There will be lots of excitement going on here in Punxsutawney, PA.
As for me, I'll be doing my best to avoid all the hoopla.

See ya soon!



  1. That adorable Top Hat reminds me of the Vintage Monopoly playing pieces, I always adored them as a Child even though I never had the patience for the actual game! *Winks* The great thing about Collecting Smalls is that they don't take up a great deal of space!

  2. God, if I don't get to go junkin with you I am going to crack up..really! Loooove everything!

  3. LOL, my hubby and I have recently retired, sold everything we own including home and cars and bought a motorhomes. collecting smalls will now be the name of the game for me ans let me tell you I am very nervous...;). it all seemed like a good idea at the time, but now....where am I going to store my art supplies? My antiques? Yikes!! :)
