Laurie, I love to see your collections. I wondered if you collect dolls, large or small, as you visit those garage sales, estate sales, etc. I would enjoy seeing them. Thanks ahead of time.

Hi Laurie, I really enjoyed seeing
your collection of nut cups!!!
I have a box of probably at least
100 of the pink paper Betty Brite
cups. I found them on Ebay a couple
of years ago. I'm guessing they
may be Betty Brite but without
the individual packaging. I don't
know what to do with them all. : )
I love the wishing well cup! IT
is so sweet.
Hope that you are having a great
vacation and can't wait to hear
about all of it.


Laurie....I was guessing at the
100 pink cups, I think there are
a lot more!!! Many more! : )


wow! what a collection! you've got it all! xo natalea


Laurie, I am still trying to soak in all the trinkets in the wonderful new cupboards! Trying to keep up with your collections is like trying to eat one potato chip. I just can't get my fill! Have a great week! Elizabeth


Oh, don't we all wish we had the wishing well cup! That is adorable. As for the crocheted cups... really.
Really? Now that is an incredible amount of extra time on your hands!!

Love the Nuts about Nut Cups collection. Ta-ta! Kathy

If there was ever any doubt that you collect amazing things, this surely proves it! They're all so cute, but my favorite is by far the one with Smokey. Smokey The Bear is my boyfriend!


I love these! I wish people still used them. Parties used to be so much more charming!

Laurie, I love your appreciation of the little things in life, like nut cups.....they certainly have their own beauty and charm. I especially liked the foil ones, until I saw the crochet teacups.....those are exquisite!


Who knew to collect nut cups!? But you see the beauty in all things great and small. That's what I like about your blog. The foils are my favorite. I am so distracted by shiny things!
