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.

THRIFT STORE FIND


I am loving this 50s kids formica kitchen table! So cute! Found it at a little thrift shop in New Jersey. :-)

GUEST COLLECTOR... sort of!


My husband George loves W.C. Fields... so here is his collection!
The 3 large ones are decanters and the small tan one is a pitcher.

SATURDAY ANTIQUING


Drove through Allentown on Saturday and of course had to stop into Black Rose and Weil Antique Centers. 2 of my favorite spots. So much to see and very inspiring as usual! And of course I came home with a few pottery planters. :-) Love the grey one! Don't see too many pieces on grey!

SATURDAY ANTIQUING


Spent yesterday with my good friends Jenny and John... antiquing at some of my favorite places and of course came home with a few treasures... the highlight being a vintage tin dustpan! I'd been looking for one. The kind that matches my kitchen canisters... and at the last place we stopped at, there it was! :-) Also, very happy with the tin tray... loving the blue! And to my surprise, I came across a little bark canoe which I just had to get. And... of course there's aways pottery to be found! Jenny got some good stuff too so I will look forward to having her as Guest Collector very soon!
