|This is a place that used to be a store.|
Now it is just collections.
I asked my friend if I could take pictures and he agreed.
I thought you might enjoy this little secret place.
|Look at all of these little Pez Candy containers. Amazing.|
One time when I was ebaying I bought a container that I loved.
When I got home we opened it and it had Pez Candy toys in it.
We sold them on ebay! I was amazed what people will pay for these.
|If there is a sewing machine around, you know I will get a picture of it.|
|I LOVE this little clock.|
|Usually it is the women that like to shop but my friend told me that shopping for things like this was his passion.|
This is not just a piece of furniture.
This opens up with a sewing table that pops out and lots of storage.
It even has places for your thread.
|I think this is McCoy!|
|Amazing that someone has this much stuff.|
This is not in his home. This is in a separate building.
|This is what I really wanted a picture of but when he allowed me to take other pictures I was thrilled.|
He built this bird feeder. Is this not something?
|His yard is in tiers. This looks like a stairway to heaven. |
When you get to the top you will see lots of grapevines, azalias, roses, hostas. and lots more.
Another bird house.
Looking up from the stairway.
|I think they love birds!|
|This is a barrel that he collects the rain water so he can water all of his plants.|
|Another view looking up.|
|Benches & Swings are everywhere.|
|There are also angels everywhere.|
This is just a little piece of heaven.
I thought you would enjoy seeing all of this.
The owner told me that this is his secret place.
I have been tagged by Mama Bear to answer her questions. Then I am suppose to pick 8 new questions and pick 8 people to participate. This was fun. Thank you for including me!
What to you is the greatest benefit you receive from blogging? I discovered blogs a few years ago. I immediately thought of my Mom because she has so much to share. I asked her if she would start one for her children and she said that she would, if I would. I never knew that I would love it like I do. I have made many new friends even though we may never meet on this side of life. When your everyday friends are too busy to talk or visit (which is just the way life is), I can always go and visit my blogging friends! I love learning and I love friendship. There are so many people that have so much to share. I just love blogging.
What was your childhood nickname? How did you get it? Are you still called that now?
Beth. It is actually short for my middle name. Elizabeth. Yes, I am still called that now by family.
Miracle Whip or Mayonaise? Mayo!
What is your favorite season and why? This is a hard one. I love fall because of the cool weather and slowing down in life. I love spring because it seems like a new beginnng and life.
When you are sick, do you like a lot of attention and pampering or do you like to be left alone?
Share one pleasant childhood memory. Coming home on a cold winters day from school and my MOM having hot chocolate and popcorn waiting on us.
Share a time that a hymn has ministered to you in a special way.
Just the other day we were at Dollywood in Gatlinburg and I watched a video of Dottie Rambo and heard her story of how she wrote the song WE SHALL BEHOLD HIM. She wrote this song in a car in 7 minutes in 7 miles while looking at a sunset that she said God placed before her. Dottie was good friends with some of our best friends. She passed away not too long ago in a bus accident. If you have never heard of her you need to read her story. She was and is still a blessing. We were priveliged to meet her several times.
Describe your favorite coffee mug. Why do you like it?
We have 2 Starbucks coffee mugs. I love them because they were given to us as a gift by a very good blogging friend, Martha! She also knitted me 2 scarves and sent them to me. See why I love blogging!
If any of you do not want to participate that is fine.
Just wanted you to know that I was thinking of you.
1. Do you prefer hand washing dishes or the dishwasher?
2. Rainy days or sunny days?
3. Do you have a hobby and what is it?
4. Are you a shopper?
5. If you could do one thing in your life no matter what it costs, what would you do?
6. Do you have a certain "wash" day (laundry day) like Granny did?
7. Do you have a simple recipe that you love and would you share it with us?
8. Who are YOU? The real YOU? The one that only YOU know.
If anyone leaving a comment would like to answer these questions, leave answers in your comment. This is a lot of fun.
