You're going to have to put your things up high so Mr. LC can't touch them! Doesn't he know, don't touch the hummels! :)

sorry :(

I had a friend that used a house cleaning service until she discovered that most of her Hummel collection had been broken and glued back together. What a drag but your delivery always cracks me up.

If I take my glasses off I can't see the glue. What crack?

Oh no. That really makes me sad. My mother loves and collects Hummel figurines and I still have my two from when I was little ... one had its head come off. That's not pretty.

And we had Hummel lamps, which were always being knocked off the bedside tables ... more catastrophe.

I have a real soft spot for Hummel ... no wonder they're so expensive ... there are so many worthless broken ones in the world which is shortening supply.

How'd that one break? Icicle?

Maybe you should stop dusting them? Just a thought. I hear dust gives things a hardened finish. ;-)

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

So sad, her poor little leg. Perhaps you need a curio cabinet.

Oh dear, looks like she had a mishap gathering those poppies. Nevermind.

Ahhhh shoot. Glenco always tells me something can last a hundred years until I own it. I tend to break everything!! It's almost time to get the dollhouse back out. Hope you are well! Merry Christmas!
