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.

REARRANGING!...

My restaurant china collection… rearranged for the new year!
Just finished painting our dining room. 
This is only one of the collections that is in there! There's more!
Took me hours to put it all back… but that was the fun part!

Lamp Update...

Here's an update from my September post.
I originally wanted to hold out for vintage shades for
these pink lamps and found a perfect pair on eBay.
Mint condition, mid-century tall shades in off white and gold.
I was so excited to get them and when they arrived the box
was smashed and they were completely damaged. :-(
So, here we go… "new" shades and newly rewired lamps.
I like! :-)
It was tough to find the right shade for this little lamp too.
I am still searching but for now I found this cute
off white burlap shade. The pattern of the burlap picks
up the pattern on the lamp. All rewired and looking very cute. :-)
