Just a quick post to show you one little thing I picked up on the road.
As I mentioned before, we stopped twice at Pea Soup Andersen’s on our trip.
Andersen’s has a fun gift shop in their lobby. One entire corner is devoted to Christmas all year.
They also offer cans of their soup, some interesting books and toys and a huge collection of blue and white china figurines.
This little fellow came from there.
He asked so politely, I just had to adopt him. 🙂
He will fit in nicely with some other items already in my possession.
I found the little lass below in a thrift store a couple of years ago. She is actually a salt shaker and certainly had a mate at some point in her life.
I love the detail on her face.
This tiny windmill is actually a bottle topper. The little blades spin around and though I don’t have the bottle it sits on, I love it anyway.
Somehow it makes the little lass seem more at home on my shelf.
A few weeks ago, I opened a Christmas package from lovely Leighann and found this little boy.
How well she knows my quirky collections! I love him.
Now I just have to put away the holiday decorations (insert fatigued sigh of anticipation here), so I can return these little sweeties to their china hutch home for the spring!
Thanks for looking!
See you in a few days.
