"It took me years to get these souveiers." John Prine

After the Christmas things came down, yesterday I decided to fill this teacup shelf in the living room (above the t.v.) with some of my husband's treasures.  I thought, well, this is his room too ... why have I put his special things in the bedroom instead of where he can enjoy them everyday?  After all, I have my stuff spread out all over the house.

I interspersed my bears and other little 
figurines amongst the other treasures.

Don't ya love that Avon sports car?

I think the beer steins are from Avon too.

This horseshoe is cool.  The Olympia brewery in Tumwater, Washington is now gone.  But, Tumwater is where Cary and his family lived for quite a while.  I love all of the fishing lures laminated inside, along with a couple of real flies.

For the record, Cary does not collect old Avon bottles. His Grandma did, and I brought them home for him as mementos.  Thanks for taking a peek!
