Welcome to another creative opportunity to showcase photos, via our weekly Saturday Snapshot event, hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books.

This week, I’d like to share some collections.  This first was from the trip my son and grandchildren took to England and France last summer.

European Money collection

From a few years ago, I have this collection of East European memorabilia, including some postcards.  The angels are from another collection.

postcards, etc.


And as another nod to spring, here are some wind chimes on my patio.  I love listening to them while I put my feet up and read.

What are the rest of you spotlighting today?  Come on by and let’s chat.

Let's chat!

Let’s chat!


  1. Love the coffee cup! 🙂 The money from England is cool… I have some money from Honduras, they look like dollar bills but it actually takes 18 of them to make a dollar so when it looks like you have a lot of money you really don’t. I always had a hard time with that – it seemed like I was paying so much for something when I would have to hand over so many bills. 🙂


    • Oh, I love the coffee cup, too, Sheila…and I always forget to use it! It sits in a country cupboard with other favorites. I need to use it more.

      I haven’t been to Europe…yet. I have mixed feelings about going and trying to understand the currency; not to mention the long flight! (I’m not a fan of flying, although there are things about it I enjoy).


    • I am very sentimental about collections…I have an old necklace that I wore in 1970 when I met my second husband…lol. It is a wooden “hippie-like” beaded necklace, and I drape it over the door to my jelly cupboard in the dining room. And the vintage postcards are in a little container on that same cupboard.

      Thanks for stopping by, Deb…


    • I should have said more about the windchimes…the moon and stars chimes were given to me by an old friend whom I met in college; she gave it to me after my last visit to her a few years ago.

      Thanks for stopping by, Fran.


  2. I’m not sure I made it to your blog last time; it was an extremely busy day. It’s nice to have a few things to remember a trip. I have a set of windchimes made of wood. Different materials make different sounds.


  3. I love those vintage postcards.
    I have mixed feelings about wind chimes–some of them drive me nuts. We have a set now that my son insisted on years ago. It works for me because it’s not such a high-pitched tingle. 🙂


    • I would love to experience Europe, but I suspect that my “fear of flying” might be a hindrance…lol. I don’t mind short flights, but anything more than five or six hours is a problem for me.

      Thanks for stopping by, Paulita….


    • Thanks for visiting, Martha…I enjoy the collections, although this past week, I’ve been busily sorting through and “editing” some of mine; storing them in bins in the garage! Not these in this photo post, though.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
