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.

YARD SALES


The yard sales have been pretty good this season... I'm happy with these finds from this past Saturday... vintage enamel bowl for $1, nice Hull pottery planter with bamboo pattern for 25 cents, awesome green sprinkler for $1 and fun 70s plastic napkin holder in mint condition for 25 cents!

TRASH = TREASURE!




The trash has been great lately! I love the iron table with glass top! Can't wait to paint it! And how lucky to find it with the glass in one piece! Not sure where it will go yet... I have 2 others like it! Love these 2 floral tins too! And this signed, 1960s Mikumo Woodblock Japanese print, excellent condition, in a vintage bamboo frame!! YAY! How could someone throw this out? :-)

OLD STUFF in the GARDEN


I love adding rusty gates, old chairs and other cool stuff to the landscape. The old metal headboard is one of my favorite pieces.
