Porte Ponderings:

My youngest sister had her Annual Christmas Tea on the weekend. She collects and displays Dicken’s figures. This year she arranged them according to location in London England. Complete with the Queen’s coffin at one end and the working train at the other. Her collection grows every year as she scours sales on line and in person. Buying a whole lot just to get one building or character, then selling duplicates.

This sense of wonder and excitement continues and brings joy to her to include others in her annual tea.
