The weekend, collections, and a jaguar

Oh, boy, what a long weekend! I hope everyone had an enjoyable one.

Saturday I actually got to go yard saling. I love to go to yard sales. We went all over the countryside. Of course, I didn't find anything but one little elephant planter. K and Steve found a computer, ionizer thingy, and toys. They had the car jampacked, but alas, none of it was for me. Just once I would like to have a day where they find little, and I find everything. lol. Sunday it just rained. Rained all day. Blech!

So, this week I will be relisting a few things in my shop. Today it happens to be my jaguar bracelet. It happens to be one of my first pieces of my special sterling silver filigree. I really love that smokey quartz jaguar. He's really very pretty.

Okay. Here's the idea I stole from Debbie over at Craftymoose. Well, not really since she said to do it in her blog post. Collections. What do you collect? Let's see.

1.Elephants. By far my biggest collection. I love elephants. Trunks up or trunks down. Doesn't matter. You can see a few of them in my pics. A very few. At last count, I had almost 200, and I've added a few since then. Most of them are small or on the verge of being tiny.
2. Horses. I have collected horses since I was a child, but I have become very picky as to what horses I collect now.
3. Paint. Yes, paint. It's a very weird addiction that I cannot stop. I buy paint, like wall paint, all the time. I'm very weird.
4. Mirrors. I didn't even realize that I collected mirrors until I started doing this list. Another of my idiosyncrasies. I really believe that it is because I have never lived anywhere that had enough mirrors. Not that I like to look at myself all the time, but it would be nice to at least see if I just look horrible before I go out.

Wow 200+ elephants! It is interesting that I also didn't think of some of the things I collect until I made the list!

Didn't get to go to tag sales this weekend--perhaps next time.

wow, fantastic list.

my mom always said if you point the elephant towards the door (i think) or maybe was good luck, same thing with trunk up.
