First Frog

Since I was a little girl, I’ve collected frogs.  I can’t remember how it started, but my first one came from my Grandma.  Pretty soon, I had a collection of miniatures on top of my chest-of-drawers.

The great thing about collecting is it makes it really easy for people to buy you gifts.  The bad thing about collecting is…same answer.  At one point, it just started getting ridiculous, and I began to pull away from my collection.  Over the years, many of my pieces have “moved on,” but I still enjoy a good frog now and then.

    Your frogs are so cute! I really like the first pencil holder. I had a friend who collected Scottish Terrier items, but she got tired of only getting those items for gifts. LOL

      I know what your friend was going through! I had to put a stop to it too…it was getting crazy. I still like frogs though. I just don’t want people buying them for me. The pencil holder you like is probably 35 years old. I got it when I was a teenager. It’s a miracle it hasn’t been broken.

    What an amazing collection…happy ones and bemused ones. The green one at the top is my favourite…he needs mothering! Nice canvas…bight and cheerful!

    Your froggies are too cute! I collected pig ornaments for the longest time and, while I don’t collect them any more, I still have a soft spot for pigs.

    The stencilled canvas is lovely!

    You’ve got some very cute frogs there! I knew somebody as a child who collected frogs, too.

    That canvas is lovely! You did a beautiful job with it!

  • That stencilled canvas is a winner and the frog collection is cute… my niece is into collecting them as well xx
