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.

VINTAGE CHAIRS


I love and eclectic mix of chairs around my dining room table. Almost all the chairs in my house were found in the trash with a few exceptions which came from yard sales. Some I like to paint, refinish or just leave as is!

GUEST COLLECTOR


I love to visit the home of my friends Jenny and John. They have a great house decorated with an eclectic mix of vintage stuff and very cool artwork! Both are super talented too. John is an accomplished artist and graphic designer and Jenny is great at refinishing furniture, making beautiful pillows with funky fabrics, renovating, gardening, decorating, baking... oh and she's an architect too! This past weekend I snapped this shot of her optic, mid-century glass collection. So pretty as it sits on top of a great cabinet that was stored away for years... and of course totally refinished in her style! I hope to get some more pics of their cool stuff for future posts.
