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.

PRESENTS for ME!


It's great to come from a family of collectors! My dad is always thinking of me when he's out hunting for treasures at yard sales. He's great at finding the stuff I love! Check out these 2 yellow McCoy planters and little pink pottery vase **smile**... and this awesome vintage Christmas tree stand. This is a collection that I haven't posted yet but will soon! And, these great vintage wooden hangers with advertising. Thanks dad!

  2. I've just discovered your blog & it's fabulous. I especially love the wooden hangers. I collect them & have quite a few, I'll just go & count........... Oh... 58 different ones. I didn't realise I had so many. Some are American, Canadian a couple of English ones & the rest are Australian. All from different decades, different shapes, different timber etc...
