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.



I love to use a mix of vintage restaurant plates from my collection to set the table for the holidays. My Thompson china is a favorite... and it's my last name! I also have some of the matching Thompson flatware which looks fun as accent and serving pieces on the table.


  1. l'm really liking your old restaurant plates and great that they even printed your name on them for you....haha!! Have a lovely day.

  2. I love restaurant ware and how cool to have some with your last name! I just found your blog and LOVE it! I am a new follower! Anyone who collect like you do is my kind of blogger!
    hugs, Linda
