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.

SATURDAY FINDS

I've been dying to get to the Bus Stop Flea Market in Slatington, PA
so Saturday morning, my birthday, was a perfect time to check it out!
It was pretty good! Looks bigger on the website but definitely 
was worth going to! Very happy to have found all this pottery! 
I am really loving the yellow McCoy bowl! A nice old piece!

 And I was happy to find another matte green Floraline piece!
 Love these too! I have some other vases similar to this and 
2 other planters of this same pattern in different colors
And, also loving this nice white Haeger vase 
and these 2 yellow McCoy's!
Happy Birthday to me!!

NEW COLLECTION?

I don't know what it is about these vintage casserole dishes 
but I just love them! The smooth feel and shape... 
I see them at thrift shops all the time... and have been buying them 
whenever I see one in mint condition. Could this turn into 
another collection? Yikes! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

piece and cool pink drip piece.Afterwards went

COLLECTION UPDATE: Garden Hose Nozzles

I love the way this collection looks high up on a 
ledge over a closet in the living room.
It's grown a bit since the first time I posted it!
