WHY DO I COLLECT?

Why do I collect? That's easy... because it's so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash... which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don't have to tell you... you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.

VINTAGE GLASS ASHTRAYS with ADVERTISING

This wasn't meant to be another 
collection but it seems to be turning into one!

I love vintage glass ashtrays, 
especially from diners and motels…

I pick them up every once in a while
at flea markets and yard sales

I love the vintage graphics...

I better make room...

I have a feeling 11 ashtrays may turn into 100!
Fun!!

SATURDAY ANTIQUING...

It's been a long winter and it was so great 
to take a ride yesterday and find 3 new places!
Delphi Antiques in Schwenksville is very cool!
A great old building with 2 floors of beautiful furniture, 
architectural items and a nice mix of antique and vintage.

Another pleasant surprise was
Barn Fresh Vintage in Gilbertsville, PA.
Pretty much everything I collect! 
Pyrex, Pottery and more!
LOVE!

Trading Post Depot in Schwenksville
 has some great architectural items.
I've actually been here before but at 
their other location.
Fun!

SNOW!

No more snow, please!!!! Unless it's this type of snow!
Ran over to Care & Share yesterday to get 
my fix before the snow started! Found the 
Pyrex snowflake pattern dish at the top in 
mint condition to go with the other 2 that I already have. :-)

ROUND PLATTERS

I guess this is turning into a new collection!
Lately I've been finding these nice mid-century / 70s round platters.
Most are Mikasa and others are marked USA. 
All in excellent condition. I love using these… so fun!
