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.

GUEST COLLECTORS!!


Another cool collection from the home of Tom & Alan is this series of British boys books by G.A. Henty which are about adventures all over the world from the turn of the century. They were published worldwide but the original publisher Blackie & Sons, London, had these distinctive figures on the spine. Tom displays these on a high, wall to wall shelf in his studio and I just love the way they look! Shown here just an example.
