Words of Wisdom.... or...Words I collect?

There is just nothing better than when I hear the words garden and shop in the same sentence!
I love collecting tags and differant labels... The logos are so artistic & colorful!
I love love love all the Fancy Nancy books!
The quotes from the books seem to come from my everyday life!( I will have to do a seperate post on that! Hee hee.) Which brings me to FRENCH words! I love any thing french! I have been a francophile for 25 years!
Last but not least: I am obsessed with all things gardening...
that would equate to my 457 books on the subject! LOL
Oh yes, I just had to get this and hang it in my art studio...
Have a great weekend!
Make sure to join my sparkle team if you want an update once in a while!
Love, Contessa Vanessa ..........LOL

Can One have too Many Collections?

Just a few of mine... They say :
Three or more of something and ITS A COLLECTION!!!
UH OH... 
I Think I have a collection of collections!
My sister Tanya says she collects Hobbies... LOL
My sister sue collects Precious Moments, snowmen... and others.
                   The REAL SUBJECT:
My Sister Trina did collect Dept 56 houses, But they all burned down in her house fire this Christmas day, which brings me to this post...
even though  I hold on to all these things, what would I grab if my house was on fire?
I think we all have pondered this in the last few weeks, of helping her.
She has taught me a huge lesson ....
 by seeing how she has handled loosing EVERYTHING that she owned! 
They grabbed their kids... 
that's all that was important. 
So true... So true. ...
Thank you Trina for letting us all see your strength,...
 for letting us see your faith in Jesus Christ,...
 (for putting whats important first.)
