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.

WEEKEND FIND



Drove through Chadds Ford, PA on Saturday and had to stop at a few favorite spots... one being Brandywine View Antiques. A big old house filled with all sorts of stuff. They have a great wrap around porch loaded with interesting things and that is where I found this cool vintage metal step ladder. I love that it's yellow and white and distressed just the way I like it! And, for $10, I couldn't resist. Another perfect display piece for pottery! :-)

  3. Hey! I couldn't find your contact information, but I have a question about a globe! It is on my post here:

    I saw you collect globes and was wondering if you had any information about one like this? It is really neat with all the creatures all over it, but it doesn't seem to line up in a place or two. Hope to hear from you, thanks!
