This should interesting...

My husband and I love to garden, but right now, the ground is rock. solid. frozen. You can imagine how excited were were when Pete's sister sent this to him for his birthday:

Fun! We'll be growing our own Smurf village! Stay tuned.

PS: Can't believe i actually pulled these out after so many years. I sometimes joke with hubby that my bag of Smurfs is part of our retirement fund (if only.) Guess I'm trying to justify the dust they collect on the shelf in our basement. Anyone else spend your hard-earned allowance on these? Come on, admit it. If not Smurfs, did you collect other things? I'll tell you about one of my other collections (my favorite one) in another post : )

  1. hummmmmmmm I love collecting fabric and antiques, I just added to my collection yesterday with your Verna. Yup it's so pretty in "real life". Have fun with the mushrooms, we love gardening and have used lots of mushroom soil as mulch.

  5. Don't know if you are aware of this, but we are actually in the horse manure distribution business... we will deliver! Great for mushrooms, and all other living things.

  7. I collect cotton fabric and Kelly dolls. I don't add to the Kellys like I used to because they don't make as many and I don't have the storage space. My girls love them too...eventually the Kelly dolls will be theirs. Is that weird?
