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


George spotted this while we were on our way to the grocery store yesterday. It was out with someones trash, just laying on the ground with some other junk. I jumped out of the car to grab it. OMG, how could anyone throw this out? A big, beautiful McCoy vase! Green! I also have it in white!

  6. I still have regret nightmares about the trash-treasure I left behind as a teenager. Someone was throwing away a tv-sized cardboard box of comic books. I was on my bike riding home late at night, and couldn't carry the box and bike, so I left the box ... unexplored.
