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.

TRASH = TREASURE!


So yesterday George went out to get us some lunch. I was wondering what was taking SO long!! Turns out he was rummaging through someone's trash and came home with some good stuff! In the mix was this fabulous, vintage portrait!! Love it!

  2. I'm a big fan of "outsider art". Have you ever seen the book on the topic? It's very cool! BTW, this is my first visit here, and I love your blog! I'm an incurable collector, and I'll definitely be back when I have more time to look around!
