The Fun You Have Collecting

My small collection of Christmas tree pins.  I seldom wear them but they're fun to look for and put with the others.  That's what a collection is I guess.  They say if you have two things you have a collection and then they just take on a life of their own.  

I guess I got these out today because I thought I found another one at the Salvation Army.  When the clerk got it out of the case for me she said "Oh, it's not a tree, it's a bell."  A guy was standing alongside me at the counter.  "Well let me look at it, I can tell you.......it's a bell!"  I said I'd take it anyway.  Then the guy said "If you won't wear it I will!".  Hmmmmmmmm.                                    Diane

I have a Christmas tree pin for your collection if you send me your mailing address. I don't collect them but acquired one in a box of goodies from an antique shop recently.
