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!

THRIFT STORE SATURDAY


Did another quick thrift store run this past Saturday. Found 3 planters in this pedestal format. The pink one, well actually it's more lavender-ish, is marked McCoy was found at The Other Store in Pipersville, PA... $2 and the other 2 came from ReStore in Chalfont, PA... both were $1. :-)

THRIFT STORE THURSDAY & FLEA MARKET FRIDAY



Found this great tin box at Care and Share for $4.00
and these cute vintage shot glasses with drink recipes on backs
at a The Other Store in Pipersville... 25 cents! I love this place! 
The guy does house clear-outs. Their goal is to prevent usable items from 
going to landfills and to help local community charities with their needs 
and individuals in our community that are in need of some sort of help.
It's really a lot of junk but you never know what you'll find. I always find something!!


Awesome mid-century flatware also found at Care and Share!


I am loving this Hull planter... a beauty! Found it today at 
out back in their consignment barn. Vintage glass was found 
at the The Other Store in Pipersville for 25 cents.

YAY!  :-)
