|Fredericton City Hall Collectible|
The first item really might be considered brick red but what the heck. It's my Katherine Karnes Munn collectible of the city hall in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

The next item I chose is a painting I got from what I call "a starving artist sale". It's a one day art show and they have all kinds of canvases painted by art students. You can also buy frames and they will frame the painting for you right at the show. The frames usually cost more than the paintings. Most of the oil painting I have in the house come from shows like this.
Lastly, there was the twist. I thought I had a terra cotta pot and I did, but as you can see in the picture that pot is no longer terra cotta in colour. I had to go to hardware store to buy a terra cotta pot. They are cheap but not a lot selection in mid winter. What to put in my terra cotta pot that was unusual. Can you guess what they are?
Did you guess? They are my collection of glass swizzle sticks. I have 13 different pairs, coke bottles, Scottie dogs, top hats and candy canes just to name a few. They are hard to find now as more and more people drink wine or beer, so usually what you find are wine charms or those elastic bands for beer bottles and vodka coolers.
I had fun with the challenge this week.
