My Place & Yours

My Place & Yours
this week is all about Collections
what do i collect, well if you ask my family its all junk & there is just too much of it
oh well i like them & thats all that matters

one of the first collections i started were ceramic jugs, i now have quite a few different kitchen collections. one of them is Rolling Pins, when ever i find a new one it makes me think about all those pie crusts it has rolled out, i have used some of them but my fav is the glass one, it has a nice heavy even weight & rolls pastry beautifully.



i have been collecting Bee Hives for a number of years in the form of honey pots, i also have an old green hive out the back, oh & an abandoned wasp nest [it feels like paper]. these are my fav three



Badges are a new collection from the past year, they are fun & cute & make me smile :o)

I love rolling pins, my favourite is a nice NZ kauri one but it is actually too big for my little hands. Your glass one would be great, nice and cold for pastry.

Your beehives are beautiful too.

At the moment I seem to be collecting chickens.

I have never seen a glass rolling pin, I love them. my favorite rolling pin has a big ditch in it from a knot but it came from my Mum and reminds me of my childhood.

I too have a collection of rolling pins. And I responded to comment on my blog before I got to your post. LOL! I love your honey pots!

Laura said...

wow, a glass rolling pin! I've heard the heavier rolling pins are the best to use, I imagine glass is the ultimate!

I love your collections especially the beehives. Thank you for sharing.

I don't collect any one thing in particular just anything "old" will do nicely.
