Some old things!

This is the curio cabinet in my greatroom! It has a lot of my Precious Moments in it.
Most of them were from my hubby when we first got married. Then I stopped collecting
them and moved on to angels and then on to something
The doll was brought to me from my youngest sister when she went to Germany. The
other two dolls were gifts from a neighbor. The oriental tea set was my Grandma's.
It is very pretty and I love the gold trim on it. She went through a period of ordering
tons of things off QVC and that was one of her purchases. This weekend my daughter is
getting ready to go to away band camp and then when she comes home on the 8th
she has to get her tonsils out! After years of strep and tonsilitis they finally decided to
take them out and I think that is a good thing since next year she will be going away to
college...sniff, sniff. Have a great weekend!

Collections make such sweet memories. I used to collect Precious Moments too. They really are "precious" to me. My hubby still gives me one from time to time.... but not so often now that they cost $50 to $100 dollars instead of the $8.00 to $12 they started out in the 80's.

Tell your daughter good luck at band camp... (my son-in-law is a high school band director and is starting band camp today also)... and good luck with her surgery.
