Mix Bag Of Stuff

Today I had no idea what I was going to post so truthfully I'm totally winging it.  All I have been doing is sorting, packing and moving furniture.  We have so much to get rid of to get ready.  To light a fire under my butt I called a friend who's a real estate agent to come through our house to tell us what we need to do to get it ready to go on the market  so we can list it in the Spring.  I suggested the beginning of February but she's going to Hawaii then and won't be back till the 12th so thank goodness I get almost 2 more weeks, we will need it.

This bag was a no brainer for me The Union Jack Harrods how much more British can you get.
A lot of the time when I find something British it's a toss up if I keep it or pass it on to my niece  who also collects British items.  This time however I'm keeping this find.

This was a Christmas present from my husband.

My husband found the two top mugs to add to my Fire King collection this past week.
I thought I would share what I have in my collection so far.

In our home I'm the one who collects airplanes and cars for in our office and luckily my husband supports my collections he picked up this plane for me for Christmas.

My husband found this huge pile of magazines about a year ago, I unearthed them this week.
I liked the cover on this one so I thought I would share it with you.

Well everyone this is my wonderful husband many, many moons ago.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.

Sharing wit


  1. Wonderful things! How will you ever choose? Your mug collection is amazing. :) Pam

    (Love your blog look, and your photos are gorgeous.)

  2. A mix of photos is just as enlightening as doing a series on one subject. I remember the Fire King mugs well and I have 3 Harrods tea canisters that our daughter brought back from England for me with the Union Jack on. Unfortunately the tea is long gone.
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Denise.

  3. Hi Denise,
