He's made by Poole pottery and I think he's rather handsome.
I did try kissing him once but nothing happened. But as I'm married that's probably just as well.
What did you collect as a child? What do you collect now?

Lovely frog <3
As i child i collected mini soap bars :D Yeah, you heard me. Little soaps that you get from hotels.

Now I collect fancy paper bags :) Bags with a certain logo or nice pic or slogan. I hang them on the wall like paintings. Also my BF collects these for me

As a child I collected keyrings now I collect vintage cookbooks. I love reading them and seeing how recipes have changed.

Annina - ha ha, how many soaps did you manage to collect?
Love your mugs!

Jules - I made a foray into keyring collecting too I seem to remember.

I am a big collector, or hoarder depending on who you ask. When I was younger I collected the usual, rubbers, soaps shaped like stuff, pigs, marbles. Now I collect fabric, vintage crockery and glassware, prints, design books, vintage books, cooking books (I like books), shoes, dresses, way too much. I will need a storage unit soon :)
