Baseball memorabilia/collectables/hobby

The last year has been one year to remember. I managed to occupy my mind with something different, something out of the ordinary for me.

Hobbies are nothing new nor out of the ordinary for many of us and I took time to experience the wonderful world of collectables and memorabilia. Baseball memorabilia was the central theme. It was the highlight during difficult times.

Much of what I collected, I learned from a good friend. Basic things like what to look for, how to gauge the quality and price of items, a little about bidding or making an offer, and online shopping for what I was looking for. It’s been an amazing journey. I was able to stay within my price range, make interesting purchases and learn a lot about collecting. It’s been much fun as well. That was also key, enjoyment without obsessing or having buyers remorse.

The images posted here are a small part of my collectables. I hope this inspires the reader to enjoy things they like to do during their free time and inspires them to find a positive outlet in their lives.

Philadelphia Museum of Art-Claude Monet’s “Japanese Footbridge and the Water Lily Pool, Giverny”

Hello everyone! I thought this might be of interest to art lovers. The Philadelphia Museum of Art did a youtube presentation on Claude Monet. From the post “Often called the Father of Impressionism, Claude Monet inspired the term that defined this movement. Born in Paris, Monet would later live in Giverny, where he purchased a property, planted sprawling gardens, and painted his famous water lilies.”

I hope everyone enjoys this. It was a very good post and very interesting.
