First post of the new year

A little late, I know, but I've been so busy.

I don't think I've mentioned it yet but I have two more rabbits. My neighbour was unable to look after them anymore so Mollie and Mia have joined the McLoughlin family. Cute little things they are but naughty at the same time. I'll be saving up some money for them soon to get them spayed, hopefully that'll sort their fighting out.


After Christmas is almost always a difficult time for people. All the excitement is over and life goes back to normal. Bills need to be paid, work goes back to normal and there are no real holidays to celebrate until Valentine's day, if you celebrate that.
I do like February though, as it is my birthday ;) and I can treat myself to a few more models than what I usually would.

 After the new year I always question my collection. Should I collect something new this year ? only collect OF's ? Start collecting CM's ? Resins ? Tack ? Props ?
So many questions !
And I usually have the same answer, stick to what I'm comfortable with. And what I'm most comfortable with is OF's. They are relatively easy to get, except Breyers are a little harder to get now, but then everyone has nearly the same looking model. The other price difference should be if there is a slight variation which makes it more collectible. 

This year, I've decided to start collecting customs too. I have got a few, maybe 20 horses, but I was never really fussed by them because they are unique and that's what attracts people to them. If you are bidding against people and you don't win, you'll never get that version of the model again unless the winner sells it.
I know I should selfish.
I've seen various models over the past few days that have made be change my mind and they are affordable too ! Ok they are private sales but I can actually afford these and I'll be able to grace my collection with unique pieces of art.

I think everyone has that thought every once in a while regarding collections. I'm happy to collect two types of finishes even if it may be more expensive !
