Check out my new relief wood carving! I am collecting these and this is the first one I have that is stained or painted. I have stayed in an Alpine chalet that could easily be the scene on which this carving is based. I got it at a garage sale this weekend; the lady thought her dad got it when he was stationed in Germany.
My collections have come and gone – ice cream scoops, frogs, stamps, etc. Relief carvings are great to collect; you don’t see them often, so they don’t take over your house. Collecting lighthouses was a nightmare; there are just too many of them! I still have cameos, but I don’t know enough about them to invest much, so I only have inexpensive ones.
Do you collect anything?
