my GRANDMA loves to collect....

Meet my maternal grandmother, Jean. She is a spunky thing with funny quirks that I am just starting notice in my older years. While I was visiting the past couple weeks the funniest thing I realized about her was how she loved to decorate her house with heads. These heads have always been around. And so I decided that my grandma deserves a spot on my blog with a post of her head collection:) enjoy.
these two heads are on the window sill of the office/ where Olivia slept
These four heads are near the front door. They welcome you to my grandma's house:) haha.
These heads are on the back porch. My favorite has to be the head in the dirt. There use to be walking stones, and plants, etc and now its just dirt and a head. so random. love it.
And this is the head on the counter by the sink. So what do you think? Do any of your grandparents have funny collections? Mine also has an EXTREME obsession/collection of St.Louis Cardinals stuff. I will show that sometime perhaps....

This cracks me up. I think that most people would be a bit uncomfortable with so many heads around...just so many eyes watching you. Anyway-I think that it is great. I was wondering what the glass heads were? Did they serve a different purpose at one time, or are they simply decorative?

Ooooh- I love those! I have a glass head I once used in an art project:) My mom collects "hands"; she's got such a great variety of them in different poses. Maybe I'll do a post about them sometime:)
