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 COLLECTOR



I'm happy to have Lea of The Collect Collective as a Guest Collector on my blog! She was nice enough to interview me about my collections on her blog this past summer. So much fun! Lea has been collecting things since she was a little kid. It started with rocks, snoopy, glass animals, yo-mtv raps/garbage pail kids cards to more adult themes; globes, black and white photographs, aprons, sticks and dried flowers. Currently she collects vintage tins and boxes, antique childrens toys (wooden or metal... best if they make music!) and paper moon photographs. The paper moons are her favorite and I have to say, a very unique collection! Who knew? She says they are hard to come by and loved the idea so much that she made a wooden moon for her wedding and guests sat on it and had their photos taken! She doesn't have the time, space, or money to collect all of the things that she's interested in and that is why she's been blogging at The Collect Collective... so she can share her thoughts, collections and connect with others who collect.
