My Collections - Thimbles



As I was packing up my belongings I realised that I am a bit of a ccollector I have 3 mains collections, which I am going to split over three posts. This week...  Thimbles!!

This is my main collection and I have been collecting for almost as long as I can remember! I bought my first one at an otter sanctuary, and ever since pick one up when I go to somewhere new. They are mostly in chronological order, so they are also a good reminder of holidays past. 
I love them because they are usually cheap, can be bought anywhere, are small and are a great way to remember holidays, events and day trips. I have painted three myself and the Grandma figure in my life has given me a few of her old ones, so they are very sentimental! I have amassed a fair few over the years and my collection now stands at 109.






As you can see, I have a fair few (apologies for the plastic backing on the windows of my display, we are struggling to get it off!) of all different materials: wood, clay, china, glass and metal. And all different sizes, I even have a cat shaped one!

Check back in the next few weeks for 2 more posts on my collections!
