NOT ANOTHER COLLECTION!

fav_thngs_cmbnd_thumb[1][1]

One of my favorite things are silhouettes.  (Yes, I collect a few lot of different kinds of things, and yes I have some quirky eclectic collections.)  Most of the silhouettes I’ve collected reside in my master bedroom.  I’ve never liked a photograph of myself, so I’ve always thought I should have my silhouette done.  I think I’d like that (if it was of my “good” side!)   Or, maybe I’ll just find a really pretty silhouette and tell everybody it is me!  When you see that my blog picture has changed to a silhouette, you’ll never know if it’s really me.  I’m liking this idea more and more.

I’m sure all bloggers know how difficult it is to take a photo of something behind glass without getting a glare and/or reflection.

I inherited two of the four seasons reverse paintings on glass from my grandmother (Spring and Summer).

Amazingly, I recently bought the Autumn reverse painting at a yard sale for $1.00!

autumn I’m still looking for Winter. (Well, I’m not really looking for Winter – it’s okay with me if we don’t have any cold weather at all!  I AM looking for the matching Winter reverse painting on glass.)  I have found sets of all four seasons on Ebay, but I’m not paying the $450.00 they are asking (especially since I already have three of the seasons).  Winter IS my least favorite season, so maybe I’ll just pretend it doesn’t exist. 

I have found single seasons on Ebay, but none of the singles were Winter.  (Just my luck – everybody else has the same 3 I have!)  If you ever see a Winter of the Four Seasons by Fidus at a reasonable price, please get it, and I will reimburse you and pay for shipping it to me.  (I think in the Winter scene, the nymphs are wearing clothes.)

Last year, I got this Halloween plaque at a gift shop.  I guess this is what they call “cross collecting”.  I collect silhouettes, AND I collect ANY decoration for ANY holiday, so I HAD to buy this, even though it wasn’t on sale. I know what you are asking yourself …. is there something she doesn’t  collect?  Unfortunately, I don’t collect much money!

h'ween After the very colorful tablescape I shared in my last post, I thought maybe seeing an all black and white post from me might be a nice rest for your eyes!  Thank you for coming to see a few of my favorite things.  I hope you’ll go see all of the other favorite things by clicking on the links below.  laurie
