My Bird House Thimbles

I collect thimbles because they are tiny so they don't take up a lot of space. 

 And most important...they are pretty.

This is my thimble collection of birds and bird houses.

Many years ago I belonged to a thimble club until it was discontinued. 

 Someday I will have to post about that collection - it is one of my larger ones.

I like to buy a thimble souvenir when we travel too...that is if one is available. 

 I've grouped my travel thimble collection together in a little wall shelf unit.

My bird thimbles combined my love of birds with my love of thimbles.

  1. Ahh, this collection is approved by Kiwi and Pearlie! So cute. I never knew thimbles came in such cute shapes and styles. xo

  2. What a cute collection! And isn't it nice they don't take over too much space. I love your collection!

  3. What a lovely collection I too collect thimbles and I try to buy them from my travels.

  4. How interesting. What a great collection you have.

  5. Hi Sandy,
    I love your petite collection of bird house thimbles..I have not seen these before..they are adorable!
    I purchased my red strip rug from Ethan Allen last year, so I think they should still carry it.
    Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth
