Frogs and scissors!

When I posted a picture of the beautiful French glass flower/scissor frog *here* which I had been given on my recent trip to France, Caroline from my Stitch-n-Bitch group emailed me to say that she didn't realise that I didn't have enough pairs of scissors to fill the holes. I then had to admit that this frog was not the only one I have. I also have these:

And these:

And, I also have a few empty ones but I need to search out the rest of my scissors which are hiding in their boxes amongst my stash and I think I may even have to treat myself to another pair or two. Oh dear, I'm not only 'scissor' obsessed I think I may be 'frog' obsessed too! Valie has a beautiful oval one so I am on the lookout for something similiar.

On the stitching front, I have been working on Jane Rees. I need to take a WIP picture but as I'm working this one on a small hoop which I am moving around, it's a little creased so I will take a picture once it's been ironed.

It's a beautiful sunny Spring day here today so I may go outside with my stitching.

Thanks for visiting; have a lovely weekend
Take care

    I really like these "frogs" but don't know where can be ordered them from... Can you give me some web-addresses? :)
    They look very pretty!

    Have a nice weekend :)

    Wow, Carol, that is a lot of scissors!! My youngest DD thinks I have a lot so I think I should show her all yours!

    Crikey! I know where to come when I can't find mine!

    Just too funny. We should never put our scissors together in one room. Our DH's tend to look at us strangely. I have mine strategically placed - one in Arizona, one by my upstairs and one by my downstairs chairs at home. That way he doesn't think I have so many ROFL.

    What a great idea! I have an old frog that just sits in a case. I love this. Thanks for posting it. While I have several pairs of scissors, I always tend to find another one hiding somewhere!

    Oh my goodness! Look at all those scissors, lol. I think you're addicted. ;-)

    WOW look at all those frogs. I always look for one when I go to the local antique strip here but I can never find one. They must have been alot more popular over in the UK then they are here in Aus.

    WOW! I just love this way of displaying scissors. I am just an amateur in comparison!

    LOove your frogs, and your scissors! I thought I was the only one with a scissors problem. LOL

    Ann is gorgeous and thanks for sharing the spools! I'd not seen them yet. :o

    I think a break is a good idea--enjoy the spring! But I'm glad you have plans to return, too. :)

    Wow, you may win the "Most Scissors" award--but I really love them, too! I see a few styles in your collection that I also own.
