You will also see a pewter birdnest and little bird, a wooden apple, an 'S' from a printer's typeset (for our last name), a mini church, a tiny card of the sweetest little buttons, a can of Coke and a little brass bell.Nearby you will see a yellow blown-glass fish, two ducklings at play, a teacup, a little stack of books, two lazy frogs and a miniature scale.You might enjoy the blue and white teacups, the ice cream maker, the pewter horse and carriage or the darling little pitcher. I like everything in my printer's drawer but I think my favorite is the little Scottie dog from my childhood dollhouse. He and I spent many hours playing together. He may have been the beginning of my collection. No matter what every time I see this collection of miniature treasures I enjoy each one of them all over again. I think it really is a small world, after all!
At first my collection was very small and there were more empty spots in the old drawer than there were little treasures. Through the years I have added more and family and friends have given me sweet little things to fill the sections. There are only five empty places left. A challenge. Something to look and shop for. Now it hangs on my laundry room wall. Nearly full. Some of the little things are old. Some are new. All have special meaning to me. You will see a little duck made of seashells, a tiny dictionary, a wooden baby buggy, a feedsack of 'grain', two sweet 'rag' dolls and a teeny, tiny glass jar full of chocolate chip cookies.
