Start of Scissor Collection

While cleaning up my sewing room, again, or should I say still, I got sidetracked admiring my small collection of needlework scissors.

I know some people collect thimbles, but I don't usually use one, so I think I'm going to start building my collection of needlework scissors from around the world.
They're small, so they won't take up too much space in my very small sewing room, but also useful. See, I already know what to say to DH when he asks "do I really need more scissors?". lol
Pilar of got me started last year, when she and I did an exchange and she sent me these beautiful scissors from Spain. Aren't they exquisite?

Now I know what to put on my birthday and christmas wish lists, scissors from France, Italy, Germany and other countries around the world. I've been researching it a bit and I know there are Dovo from Germany, Bohin from France, Premax from Italy. I'm sure there are others, but I haven't learned of them yet.

Any suggestions?

Well, you have a nice collection so far. Not much into scissors even though I have quite a few.
Thanks for coming by with birthday wishes. That was sweet of you.

Wow those are gorgeous - what a fun collection! My mom collects thimbles although she doesn't sew, lol. She collects everything. Your scissors are a very useful collection!
