My collections:))

Good week to you all.... First off all, I would like to thank all of you for taking time and visiting my blog. Special thanks for your comments, it means a lot to me.
Today, I decided to post some photos related with my current collections, upon dear Allie's comment.
I've started to collect wall plates from different places I visit. I wish I could move to county and have a large kitchen to display my all plates at the same place. These are only half of the plates, two other walls are covered with my plate collection. I desperately in need of bigger place to hang all of them together.


I was collecting "country dolls" at my teen years, I still keep them. But, I must admit that I've lost my interest to keep dolls from different country dolls. Because they are typical touristic things with their poor qualities now adays. Of course there are very good things but they are too expensive, not worth to spend that much money.
My thimble collection is also getting bigger, I wish I could start to collect thimbles before 2004, so I could have an excellent collection up to now. My thimble collection interest started with my CQ addiction...



I always loved to have magnets on my refrigerator, mostly they were fruits & veggies with their lovely shapes. Now, I like to buy souvenir magnets from different places where I visit. Dear Allie, this photo for you to show my refrigerator magnets. I also decided to post some other photos as well that shows my other collections. Hope these gives you about my "Keeping" hobby. What do you think, am I on the right direction to be a real Crazy Quilter? LOL

I loved looking at your dolls. Just this last weekend I finally purchased a cabinet to place my dolls in. They have been packed away for 45 years. I also love thimbles and magnets which I collect from our travels. Thank you for sharing, it is truly a small world.
