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.

PAST COLLECTIONS


I find that I go through phases with my collections. As much as I love all of my collections, I will rearrange stuff and then find that a certain collection no longer fits in. That doesn't mean that I don't still love the collection, but I guess I have gotten as much as I can get out of it and it's time focus on another collection or start a new one. After a trip to the flea market this past Sunday with good friends Tom & Alan (See older posts / Guest Collectors), we were talking over brunch and Alan suggested that it might be fun to post past collections, so... here's one that I loved... but no longer have as I have sold them all... snowglobes... over 200!! Shown here is part of the collection when it was displayed in my Manhattan apartment. Along with the snowglobes went vintage postcards from the US States, the beginning of my (world) globe collection and a framed vintage Florida map tablecloth. As much as I loved the snowglobes, I don't miss dusting them!!
