Collection by Surprise

Did you ever take a look around and realize that you have started to collect something and you weren’t really even aware of it???

It suddenly occurred to me that there are quite a few frogs around here.

Last year when I redecorated the kitchen I wanted to add a little whimsy so I ordered this cabinet door handle for one of my kitchen cabinets.



When I went to pick it up I saw this little guy and grabbed him to go on the pantry door.


I’ve had this hide-a-key frog (empty) sitting on my front porch for a few years now.




On a trip home from the In-laws two years ago I bought this big toad at a roadside stand.






This past spring, this cutie moved himself into my rock garden. He’s about the size of a dime.




Take a look around. What do you have more of than you realized???

You know I love your frogs sometimes when ppl have theme'd items it looks silly but yours looks really fab especially with the color of your cabinets! LOVE it!

I'm looking around I do have a lot of things that have to do with wine or wine grapes. Not sure what that says about me .. lol :)

Next time I'll so call you, you're always invited for Jello shots :)
