Oh Sid Dickens how I love thee!!!

As you know I am in love with Sid Dickens. His memory tiles that is!! I was lucky enough today to add 2 of his most gorgeous retired tiles to my collection thanks to a co-worker (thanks Kathy!!). Kathy was at a store out of town that carries a huge selection of Sid's tiles, ones that I haven't been able to get here in town, and emailed me pictures of their wall and told me about the unicorn! Once I saw that unicorn I was in love!! It's just like the unicorn tattoo I have on my ankle and what a great addition to my wall. Here it is:

What a beauty eh??? Then while I was looking at the picture of the wall I saw one that I have been wanting so bad and it was there!!! So now this beauty came home to me as well:

Here are the tiles I have so far and I can't see myself stopping anytime soon!!!!!

Of course since we are in the rental until the house is built I don't want to hang any of them so they are safely packaged and waiting for the new house! And just for fun I made a dream wall (there are a couple I could delete if new ones appealed to me more), here it is (forgive the crappy iphone pic):

Swoon!!! How about you, do you have any Sid? Want some Sid?
I am dying to know when he may come out with new tiles!!!!

these really are gorgeous.

last time you posted about them I had a quick look to see if I could buy them here in the UK, but I couldn't find a stockist.

But I've just looked again and found somewhere - woohoo!

Not that I could afford them right now anyway :)

But I might put some on my wish list for my birthday and hope someone is feeling generous ;)

although looking closer at the prices, I don't think I know anyone who would spend that much on me :)

Maybe I need to brush up my pottery skills and attempt to make some! :D

Those are amazing. I do not own any but I like them, I think a store near my parents carry them. I always stop and stare them when I'm in that shop.
