figurines and bottles

it's show & tell friday hosted by kelli. last week i shared a little turtle figurine that i purchased at the acoma pueblo. i used to keep him in a shadow box i had hung on my bedroom wall. i no longer have the shadow box but kept a few things that i had displayed in the box. here are a couple of them.

these two little figurines were actually a gift don and i gave his grandma one year for her birthday. we were still dating at the time. we were probably in our late teens. when she passed away, they were left to us. we liked these two because when you arrange them properly, they are kissing. we thought it was a little symbolic of us :)

here is a picture of some really old bottles. i've always been fascinated with old stuff and i used to collect little bottles like these. i stopped when i realized i had too many to effectively display. i kept a few and these were some of my favorites.

i usually post in the evening but this one is early. that's because i'm on my way to california. i'm really hoping that i'll be able to post each day while i'm out there. it will just depend on what we will be doing each day. but even more of a factor is the internet connection - or lack of - we'll have at where we're staying.

Those little figurines are darling. They look sort of like Hummels.

Very cute. How great that you have them back--as a symbol of young love and a remembrance of the grandmother.

Have a good trip!
