A few of my original displays that will soon change

One of my displays in my bedroom:

P&A Eternal Renewal of the Seasons (T51) Released: Spring 2000
“Paris, 18th Century Manuscript. Like a red jewel, shining in a treasury of botanicals, blooms this sensuous sprawl of peony. Chinese symbol of wealth.”

L & R FlowerTribute (T85) Released: Spring 2001 Retired: 12/01/2008
“A hydrangea cluster, delicate as spring stars crowning the night.”

Below is a border of tiles that I have displayed in my office / craft room.
From Left To Right:
T53 Chess King , T154 Black Spade, T158 King of Hearts,
T208 Ace of Spades,
T161 Qween of Hearts, T159 Club, T24 Chess Pawn

I think the center tile, Ace of Spades, will be replaced with my new T20 Target tile.
Then I will need to find a new home for the Ace of Spades.

Trip to Hedges in Chagrin Falls

On Valentine's Day I won this tile from the Sid Collectors boards.
Finally today we took the little one hour trip to Chagrin Falls to pick up my newest addition!
Thanks to another contest win I have acquired my 47th Sid Dickens Tile!
I have wanted this one for a very long time!
I was so pleased to find out there was one left at Hedges!

Target was released in 1998 long before I even discovered Sid Dickens.
On the back of the tile it reads:
(T20) "May all the true arrows of your intent find their perfect center."
I just love that!

In March 2011 it will be one full year since I have acquired a new Sid Dickens. The center tile “Scarlet” was the last tile added to my collection which was actually gifted to me from a member back in March of 2010. Coincidentally it was gifted to me on the actual day of my birthday last year and that was a really awesome surprise! Well March 30th is just around the corner and so a birthday present to myself doesn't sound like a bad idea! If I could only decide on which new tile I should get! My wish list is a mile long so I guess it is time to stop into my local distributors real soon and see what stock they currently have!
