Reopening the Museum of the Odd...

The Museum is still open- but Marilyn has been on hiatus! ;>) I took some of my overflow pixies to our booth at the Antique Store today---it was difficult- but someone has to do it! Maybe there will be someone else out there who has a pixie museum and HAS to have these little strange creatures!

I still have a lot- though, scarily enough!

Here is a new batch- these are kind of cute- they're 'Josefs', and are pretty expensive now- but I got them before everyone else was looking for them --sometimes I'm lucky that way---too lucky, the hubby would say!

Marilyn's Museum of the Odd - part 6

Can you believe it? More odd little guys! These kind of look like Snap, Krackle and Pop!

I hope I'm not the promoter of nightmares---but these little guys seem to watch over me---while they're lookin' at me! ;>)

( check out all those vintage bottle caps in the pickle jar behind these guys---no- i don't collect them, i just happened to come by them and 'knew that i could use them someday!'- didn't want to see them thrown away--is that kind of close to hoarding? ;>) )

Marilyn's Museum of the Odd-2

Okay- something different in my 'museum of the odd'------

This is an old Midol bottle full of volcanic ash from Mount St. Helen's, way back in the day---yep, it's all I had to collect the ash, and I'm NOT throwing it away! ;>0

heh heh

My New **Feature*** --don't laugh! --well, it's okay

to laugh! ;>)

I think everyone who knows me, knows that I collect--ah---weird sh!t! ;>) My family - our daughters--mock me ( lovingly, of course-) and my husband just shakes his head and tries to ignore my collecting 'proclivities'! heh heh

So ---I've decided to post some of my strange things every so often, and am calling it 'Marilyn's Museum of The Odd'--

Here is the first installment ( I went to dust them today, and figured I needed a before and after picture---actually, the dust is great when we have earthquakes--my goodies stick to the surface they're sitting on and don't fall over! ;>) )
