A Precious Collection



I truly love my "Precious Moment" figurines collection.




I also love, love teddy bears.


When we were living in BC, I so missed my wonderful collection.  But happy as me, I have been reunited with my babies!


I would say I currently have about 30 pieces of the "PM"'s.



Now that I am back, I will be hitting eBay for some good deals!

Bought this sweet moose teddy out West.

I also have a small collection of "Cherished Teddies" figurines.  I have been buying figurines with members of my family name.

This beach girl is named "Sandy"....my oldest sister.

I have another small collection of "Snow Babies".



Years ago when I was married, I had a massive collection.  So big, I entered a contest by Enesco (company that makes them) and won.


When the husband left, I had to sell my precious collection because I needed the money.  Very sad time.


But happy days came.  I started my own business, started a new life and started a brand new collection.

Guess where this cutie pie, British guard came from!

I can't wait to show you my "PM" christmas tree ornament collection....Christmas can't come fast enough! 


So everyday I thank God for my precious children, my precious family and my precious collection!





Diane

  1. Hi Diane, you do have a large and precious collection! I remember selling them to customers at Hallmark. Our daughter had a lot of the Cherished Teddies and I sold some of them at a yard sale as she didn't want them. I kept a few, just in case, though. I love the British guard bear! Have fun unpacking your treasures. Pamela

  4. Hi Diane,

    What a very sweet collection. Welcome home. I'm sure you enjoyed your time in BC, but it's always so good to get home. I especially love your bear in the black and red plaid (top shelf) and also the British guard bear. I enjoy teddy bears myself. I think most of us enjoy our collections because they have sentimental value for us. Thanks for sharing!

  5. great collection! and i love the cabinet that you have them in!!
    I also collect PM's, my grandma, mom and aunt used to get them for me growing up for my birthday so i have a ton.
    Recently I started with the Willow Tree figurines also my mom got me most of the nativity set to add to it this christmas which was totally unexpected and AWESOME. I wish I could keep it up year-round.
    And I also have a slightly embarrasing addiction/collection of Beanie Babies.. I collected them as a kid, and I love finding them super super cheap at flea markets and yard sales and even goodwill! I got a huge box at a flea market last year.. for only $4! i was totally shocked and ran away with it LOL there were only a few maybe like 3 or 4 without tags, all the rest are in excellent condition. I just love collecting them!

  8. Hi Diane! You have a wonderful Precious Moments collection. I stumbled into your year in BC. I loved it! The photos brought it all to life for me . I hd spent time there when I was younger. Have a great week! Sunny109 (Dianna)

  9. I have some collections, but not Precious Moments. You certainly have an extensive collection of them.

  10. The British guard is an adorably rotund little figure! (I guess you could also say he's pleasingly plump!)

    DID SOMEONE MENTION SCARLET?

    Did someone mention scarlet
    Or was it red I heard?
    Perhaps it was a varlet
    Or a vermilion bird
    That shouted out the color
    That’s dearest to my heart.
    (It makes me feel much duller
    If red is not a part.)

  11. What a wonderful collection. The bear is the cutest of all. He looks like the guards at the Tower of London. Love this series of pictures.

  14. Love your Precious Moments collection. I hope you continue to enjoy collecting them. I have a smaller PM collection (I was painting in our previous home and the laundry basket I had wrapped and stored them in for safekeeping tipped out and half broke!)
