The whimsical appeals to me.
Years ago I saw this goofy little
frog candlestick in a catalogue and for
some reason I HAD to have it.
Thus began my collection of
The second animal to join the
collection was this little squirrel.
I remember the day,
probably 25 years ago, or more,
my sister and I were fun shopping,
(as opposed to necessity shopping),
and again, as soon as I saw it,
it had my name on it.
Two of my favorites are this dog...
and kitty with her teacup.
They usually hang out together.
I have another kitty...
and other frogs.
Frog candlesticks must be popular
because they seem plentiful.
When I became enamored with the
Country French style of decorating
I was delighted to find this rooster.
For some reason, when the weather turns cold,
I like to bring out this little bear.
He just looks cozy to me.
I also like that his candle is
in a bit of honeycomb.
I like the spirit of cooperation of these two guys.
This studious fellow lives on the bookcase...
...along with these two.
one of my favorite sets...
come out to grace either
the mantle or table.
They're somewhat fragile,
because they're made from
real pine cones.
Easter is also a great time to bring out
parts of this collection.
Animal candlesticks are one of several
collections I have.
I also collect sheep,
a natural for someone who
works with wool.
Unfortunately, in all my searching,
I've yet to find a sheep candlestick!
But that's the fun of collecting.
It gives you something to keep an eye out for,
never knowing when you'll find
another of "your" pieces.
