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.

ONE DOLLAR WEEKEND!


I am very pleased with my weekend purchases!
The very top (left) McCoy vase was found at a Friday yard sale, 
way back in a garage in a pile of junk. One dollar! 
Measures about 8 inches tall, really nice, heavy piece in 
excellent condition. Everything else, also priced at 
one dollar came from the Quakertown Farmers Market 
and Flea Market. I haven't been there in years but 
on Sunday I just had the urge to go and I'm glad I did! 
It's loaded with great junk! :-)

  2. I found a flower pot at the Goodwill on Saturday, very similar to the green one you have in the pic. I didn't buy it because they don't sell very well here, I don't know why. I think the vintage pastel flower pots are so pretty!
