  • Plants! Hoyas for now- they're my latest obsession :) Before Hoyas it was different kinds of Aloes and Philodendrons. I had 250 plants in the house last spring- it was crazy! Now, though, I've pared things down to just about 95 or so, and I'm ordering online at different places when I'm up for a new addition to the house :)

  • with a cat I have not acquired plants...but back a few years ago I grew lavender from seed. I collect angels, mostly statuettes, and dragons.

  • I collect dolls and salt & pepper shakers.


    I also collect fairies - mostly CMB Flower Fairies.


    I love her work, and that she wrote a little poem about each flower and its fairy.  


    In her poem about the Pink Fairies, they use their little scissors to pink (as with pinking shears) the edges of the dianthus flowers ... at night while everyone is sleeping.  :-)
