Having just returned from Wrocław with over 300 photos, you could say that I collect photographs! However it’s wonderful of Jake to unexpectedly present me with the opportunity to display some of them with his theme for this week, Collectibles.
My uncle Włodek lives in the Polish town of Zgorzelec, snuggled so closely to the border with Germany that it has a counterpart across the River Neisse, in Gorlitz. The two are one, but divided by language and a boundary. On Saturday morning when we went to explore this curiosity, it transpired that there was a large market in process, and the following caught my eye.
I have to confess, I love pottery and spent happy minutes just browsing. When it comes to collecting, though, my real vice is postcards. I filled a suitcase with them, and when it was overflowing, decided enough was enough. But I still gaze longingly at postcard stands.
So much “stuff” we collect! One of my nieces came back to England with me and we were looking in the local museum yesterday. The teddy bear collection was everybody’s favourite. Winnie the Pooh and Paddington Bear -what would life be without them?
Many thanks again to Jake for presenting yet another opportunity to share my world. I’m late this week (for good reason) but maybe you’d like to join in next week? The details are all on Jakesprinters home page.
