My parents collected shells for decades. When they stopped beach combing in their later years, my mother donated almost all of them to her church. One of the other church members converted a cheap mirror into a beautiful showpiece with a number of them. My mother bought it and it hung in their entry way for years. A cousin now owns that piece.

I would be in heaven in that garage. I've been on a Harley for 24 years now. I started riding at 5. For me to be able to learn to balance we bungee corded me to my parents and rode around the neighborhood. I helped my bio father rebuild them for years. I did the first one mostly by myself at 7. They just get into your blood.

I have always dreamed of setting up a miniature village with real working trains! I was heartbroken to discover that a friend of mine's family threw out their entire set a few years back. I had no idea they even had it but I would have taken it immediately. Sadly, I'm still too poor (student) to afford my dream but one day.. One day.. :) Looking at these makes me very happy!
