From what i can tell, my 40% cut from this is $1.7 million.
I can finally pay off the high interest credit cards i racked up while starting my Hummel Collection.
Above is a picture of the favorite piece in my collection called "TRAILBLAZER". It reminds me of my carefree days of hiking around the mountains above my house in my lederhosen. Back when i had rosey cheeks, cankles and nary a care in the world.
I have repeatedly asked the M.I. Hummel company to make a bicycle figurine, but they have started sending my letters back to me unopened.
The closest i could get for my collection was a precious moments figurine called "Growing in Grace"I am sure you can agree with me that this is a very precious moment indeed. It is precious until her momentum gets the best of her and she realizes that the bike wheels are not actually attached to the frame. As near as i can tell, the fenders on this bike are resting on the wheels. if she stops too fast, it could spell trouble for her and her turtle friend. Besides, who lets their kid ride a bike without a helmet anymore, especially on a make shift bike like that?
