it just happened

Have you noticed?
Sometimes collections "happen"
when you're not even thinking about it?
Case in point - these canes.
(And I have four others that I decided to keep.)
Recently, someone said they were looking for some old wooden canes.
I thought to myself, "I have a few canes out in the corner of our garden shed."
I had no idea that I had 14.
Apparently these were all canes at prices I couldn't say "no" to.
One at a time, gathered from
thrift stores and garage sales, I guess.
I actually can't remember buying any one of them specifically.

Do you have any collections that just "happened"?

  3. I had a fabulous old Ivory handle cane once and loaned it to an elderly neighbor who really needed a cane. When she died I never got my lovely old downton abbey cane back.
    Now I have a large wood cane with black poke a dots on it
    I have always said I will use a cane when I'm an old lady LOL
