This is just a spot to visit, of one who is on a journey.
You can see my projects, plants, family, pets, artworks, antiques and anything else that comes along.

As I work with my collections of various things I snapped a few photos. I had to dust them, wrap them in bubble wrap, and place them in a big box. The kinds of collections seem to be determined by the phases going on in my life. Old cars, antiques, and new cars made to show the old are a part of the many things. I have very old trucks and cars from two generations back.
The waterfowl collection was an ongoing process until they stop selling them. My wife would buy them as a yearly gift and then she couldn't find them in the stores. I do see that they are bringing back some of the figurines but they are in few numbers.
My toy soldiers are another whole story that I won't share for now. I have two different brands of these that were made during the 40s. The conditions of mine vary by what they were made from. I have some metal ones where the paint is flaking away and others are paper mache which are so fragile.
I am back on the step ladders again today. I am going to pace myself by not working on the ladders all day. I can get my job done if I put in a few hours each day. We have errands to run, people to call, and things to buy. I see that we are promise cold weather again now and also some rain on the side. It is still early spring and snow is always a possibility in early spring.
