That was a heck of a deal Groovey :) I love to go to the flea markets, antique shops, etc. and I also collect clowns. Actually I need call Kim and Aggie over here to put all my collections into order :) I think in another 20 years, I will have to buy a new house just to have a place for everything, lol :)

Yes, we have thing like the Salvation Army, Goodwill, and here in my small town, we have a place called the Better Living Center. And I do find great deals from those places also :) $200 to $300 dollar coats every year for $10 to $20 dollars. . . Pretty sweet :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)

Hi Green Grove, I have never met anyone else that collects clowns..we must be unigue!!!How many have you collected ?I have over 80 now...some are string puppets and the rest are china with one beautiful clown wall plaque which is my favourite.My grandson loves to play with the puppet clowns...he says they make him feel very happy...just like they make me feel.For my youngest grandsons xmas pressie I have designed and made him a clowns face on a huge glass mirror using lead solder and glass particles.It looks really cool and will look good in his nursery.I have put lights in the back of the mirror and when its lit up the clowns eyes shine and he looks as though he is smiling just at you....so it almost like a childs night light...great fun doing it too!!!Be well and happy luv and christmas hugs grooveyxx

Hi :)

I only have about 10 right now and they are little "fit in the hand" ceramic clowns and jesters :) Your puppet ones sound awesome. . . I used to love puppets when I was a kid :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)

Hmmm I think I would have nightmares about clowns if I had any! I'm slightly phobic around those things! lol Does anyone have any Christmas traditions? When my kids were little, the only tradition we really had was that me and my husband would wrap the presents on Xmas eve. We had a small house and we had no where to store the wrapped presents so we would wrap them the night before Xmas and put them under the tree. We would play Christmas carols, sip on some egg nog with rum and wrap until the wee hours of the morning. I had a grand ole time! Now that my kids are older and don't believe in Santa anymore. I just wrap them as I get them and put them under the tree but I soooo miss those days and my kids being small!

When we were kids [1956-76]we all went out carol singing with the local church choir and everyone in our tiny village came out with mince pies, chocs and hot chocolate for the kids and a tot of mulled wine for the adults.[I often nicked the mulled wine!!!]We had 2 real lanterns and we all had holly sprigs in our hair.Every child made a goodie christmas box for those who were a bit poorer or very old.We put in sugar,tea,a bottle of beer,nuts,fruit,lard and a small pheasent or grouse.[that our dads had shot earlier]It was fabulous and I will never forget those days.All the money we raised went to the local childrens hospital for the babys that were born prematurely.The next day the church took us to the pantomine in the big town.Normally we had to walk 3 miles there and back but at christmas the local coach service always gave us a free ride....we felt so important and the lap stick at the pantomine made us laugh for weeks.I have everything money can buy but nothing compares to my early years...they were magical...wow I am getting sentimental!HA!HA!luv to you all groovey

Awww Groovey that sounds simply divine! Sometimes it's the old memories that are the best. And for such a good cause too!
