Yes!  My blogger friends warm my heart in so many ways!

Happy December 5 everyone!! First of all, I would like to thank all of you who joined in the discussion this weekend about what is going on with our small businesses. I really appreciate each opinion given. I have a passion about this right now, so I will keep you informed as to what I do with it. I want to find ways to make some of these businesses more VISIBLE!

Secondly, did anyone see the “turtle lady” last week on What Not To Wear?   It was about a woman who has loved turtles ever since she was young and currently has thousands of them!!! (Click the WNTW link above if you would like to see her) She never wore an outfit without turtles on her clothes and jewelry. This past weekend I met a beautiful, young kindergarten teacher who has the same passion for frogs. She loves to get “anything frog” from her students for Christmas…including clothing and jewelry!

Though I wanted to LOL after hearing of this,I couldn’t, because I must confess, I have a snowman collection! (And I really love it!) It began 25 years ago when I found one little country snowman at a Christmas boutique in Frederiksburg, TX. We were celebrating one of our first anniversaries in this quaint Texas hill country village where the Bed & Breakfasts and the shopping are just captivating! The town has a German heritage, so the corned beef and sauerkraut is delicious!

It all started with this guy!!

However, I digress….after 25 years, I have so many snowmen, there’s just no way to count! I find a cute new one every year to add to the collection and, of course, friends and family always surprise me with a unique find. But, they are only VISIBLE for about six weeks and I draw the line at jewelry and clothing…I own no snowman shirt or sweatshirt!!  Dressing in head to toe SNOWMAN just might bring visiblity I do not want.

I do believe that collecting anything is fun, but, maybe, some of us need boundaries! Do any of you have collections or obsessions you wish to confess!!

 

Now, go visit the incredible women…not snowmen…of Not Dead Yet Style’s VISIBLE MONDAY!
