of course that's nicely balanced by the pieces I did buy (and shouldn't have) that do prey on my mind  :-X  If the cost of them were all added together I could probably buy an amazing piece of glass lol
does that help?  ;D

no, not really................collectors are like any other addict - they're permanently in need of more goodies to satisfy their craving.   If I won the lottery tomorrow, I'd probably go and blow it on collectibles, very quickly.
So you know the guilt feelings as well then - but I always get over those quicker than the sense of not having bought something  -  don't think I can change now, too late. ;D

I notice that yesterday I called this a lion's foot - then couldn't remember why.........but just seen that I'd got that word from Hajdamach.
I see that Raymond Notley says a hairy mammoth or yeti foot, and you've said elephant, so got to wondering what the original description says.
When I go back to TNA in a few day's time, I'll check this particular Rd. No. and see what the Register says.       I'll post my pix as usual.

that collecting craving for me, is to do with researching the piece rather than having it.  However unless I have it, I don't really feel like researching it.  But once it's researched and identified I slightly lose interest in it  :-[
I'm starting to think I should really be working at Broadfield house or in the glass department of another museum.  Then I might not feel the need to buy glass.
Is it just me?
