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.

GUEST COLLECTOR

It was so great to visit my friend Pam (Pammy to me!) this past weekend after not seeing each other for 10 years! We grew up together and our families spent many weekends exploring antique shops and flea marketing. I loved seeing her home and this collection of vintage eye glasses! So fun!

POTTERY on a TUESDAY!

My friend Carol had never been to Black Rose... 
so we took a little road trip to Allentown yesterday afternoon!
So much fun! Tons of stuff to see! Our husbands actually had 
us paged because we were in there so long! Haha!
Carol got some nice pieces... I hope to post some of her 
collections soon. In the meantime, here are 3 nice pieces 
of pottery that came home with me!

SATURDAY FINDS (and one from FRIDAY!)

Today was the flea market at the Dublin (PA) Fire Hall.
I love this little flea market. Been going for years and it's always good!

Love this yellow McCoy round planter found at a yard sale 
on Friday and mini McCoy vase found today at the Dublin Flea Market.

After the flea market we drove around to some yard sales 
that were not that great... then stopped at a few 
thrift shops. I am very happy with this beautiful, vintage hotel plate! 
One dollar at ReStore in Chalfont, PA! A nice addition to my collection!
And, nice Haeger pottery round planter... also, one dollar!
