You Have To Kiss A Lot of Frogs

In a previous post I mentioned I collect many things.
One category is Flower Frogs. Metal frogs......

Bird frogs.....

There are more bird frogs....

And more metal frogs.....

Same group from a different angle. I don't
remember when I started collecting frogs.
Probably when I got interested in gardening.
They come is such diverse shapes and styles.

These are ceramic frogs. Wonderful colors and shapes.

Different angle again. Aren't the colors lovely? The only
kind I don't really collect are glass frogs. I have a couple
that I actually use but don't display. All of the frogs above
are displayed in our sun room.

These frogs are in my potting shed. Some
of these are plastic and others metal.

I just think they are great!!
Things that were made for a
function but take on an art
form when put together in
groups. And I'm very thrifty in what I will
pay for one. The prices have gotten very
high and I really do have enough now, don't
I don't kiss these frogs but I have been
known to hug one or two.........Annette

Wow, I've had my science lesson for the day! I never knew so many types of frogs existed. I always wondered why those vases had those little holes! Funny you mentioned frogs, I had to get some of my plain old ordinary ones out to use for some Valentine projects I am doing. thanks for the education lol! Karen

Hello~I've just strolled in from for my first visit. I'm just a hop, skip and jump from you in Vancuver. I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. You've got so many wonderful treasures. Your blog is so beautifully inviting.
We share similar taste for so many of the same design elements.
You've got such an amazing collection of frogs. They make me crave spring inspite of my seasonal allergies. Winter in the PNW can be so flowerless.
We have over 150 rose bushes that are so intoxicating when in bloom.
I ait with such bated breath for that first bud.

I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

Sweet wishes,

P.S. I have a couple questions about Uncovered Ruby. Is it a consignment or a monthly fee venue?
Are you required to work in the shop?
That is how Camas Antiques operates. Unfortunately thats not an option for me. I'm looking for a shop where I can rent a booth. I'd appreciate any info you can share.

Do you participate in the Ladybug or Prairie High Christmas Bazaar?

Sweet wishes,
