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.

ANTIQUE BILL SPIKES


Antique bill spikes or receipt holders... used on desks in general stores or offices to hold receipts or important papers. I don't know what got me started on these... there's something about them that I love. Someone had given me one and then I was hooked. Once I have 10 of something then the collection has officially begun! I find the cast iron or metal bases of these interesting pieces really beautiful. I love the way they look in a group and the fact that not everyone knows what they are when they see my collection. Makes for an interesting conversation I guess!
