Hummel Figurines and More

Updated on September 9, 2014

Collecting Hummel Figurines, Hummel Collectibles

Hummel figurines are whimsical porcelain pieces depicting the innocence of children doing various things like holding an umbrella or skating. Sometimes these cute little guys are doing chores.

My maternal grandfather was from Germany, and Mom, his daughter, loved the little Hummel figurines from there. This little washer girl is holding an iron and a towel over her arm. She has a laundry basket handy at her side.

This Hummel laundry girl figurine was my mom's. I feel lucky that now she's mine.

The name Hummel comes from

Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel,

thus the I.M. Hummel moniker.

Sister Hummel was a Franciscan Sister

trained in art at the Munich Academy.

      I grew up in a rough neighborhood. I saw first hand the detavsating effects guns played in the hands of children, gang members and criminals. Naturally, I left high school angry at the gun industry and in favor of the strictest gun control laws congress could legally pass.Today, I am still no fan of guns. I will probably never own one or even shoot one. But an argument was made that was so compelling that it changed my stance on gun control. Banning guns merely keeps them out of the hands of the good guys. Since when did criminals obey the law? They will get their guns, regardless of what bans are on the book. This leaves the innocent American defenseless against these thugs, and they know will know it. Let the citizens arm themselves, and you will have less crime. Statically this has been proven across the US.Finally, if anyone needs convincing on why the citizenry should have the right to arm themselves, look at Venezuela. At one time, it was a perfectly democratic country. After Chavez paid off the military and usurped power, the citizens were left with only sticks and stones to try and protest. May that never happen to the US.
