My Name is Sue and I'm a Cherubholic.................



I've got a confession to make............

I LOVE CHERUBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't remember when this obsession first started, although this particular brass one I've had since 1980.

I got it free for hostessing a Sales Party at my house.

It stands about 7 inches tall, and as you can see is an ideal place to plonk my jewellery on.







These two are made from pottery. I bought them for 20p in a charity shop about 10 years ago.





This photo frame came from a shopping centre in Ilfracombe in 1997


The two little cherubs IN the frame are my sons 1984, (sorry Lads!)



These were a real bargain. Made from pottery, they were in amongst the Christmas decorations in the Pound Shop in 2002. They stand about 5inches.

Obviously, they cost £1 - but they were in a box together, so that was the price for the pair!




Next, my eBay finds.................




and


I can't remember how much they cost - I bought them with my birthday money this year.

Here's an interesting one, made from pottery, but painted to look like brass and verdi-gris.



He stands about 10 inches. He cost £10 in one of the gift shops in Lincoln's tourist area.

I showed you these two a couple of weeks ago - they are fridge magnets and live on my cast iron bedroom fireplace.





and here's another £1 bargain - it holds a tea light



There's more, but many of my treasures are put away ready for the work that's planned for my dining room/kitchen building work.

Come on, then. I've told you mine...........what's your obsession?

Did you miss my previous story about my loopy Mum, if so you can read it

Love your cherubs...glad I'm not alone in the collecting madness :-)

Good thought...perhaps they ought to get married...no living in sin for Sam and Violet!

Mine was Robbie Williams........ but it would appear he is now "taken" (she wrote, a tear running down her cheek slowly and plopping onto the keyboard).......

(I would have made him great cakes!........)
