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!



While out driving one morning, my niece Amy found this great vintage cabinet in the trash! How could someone get rid of this! Excellent condition with the glass panel in tact... she got it home, sanded it down and refinished it with a rubbed red and black distressed finish. Gorgeous! Looks so beautiful with her collection of white ceramic pieces inside!
