It was a rather expensive but successfull year....

Today I took out all the marbles I was able to buy this year and made photos of them. It was a nice thing to do because I wasn't aware how many new marbles I added to my collection this year, I was really surprised to see this bunch in front of me.

I really hope that all of you were able to add some nice marbles to your collections and I would love to see pictures of your finds.

Here are the antique ones.....

Hey Mike, I like your cabinets. It is not easy to get nice cabinets to display marbles. For my old marbles I prefer old (or at least old-looking) cabinets. This is my favourite one, it was originally made to display chocolate !! It is not very old, but it looks fantastic with the Onionskins.
