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.

WEEKEND FINDS

Went back out to Jake's again on Sunday 
but this time got there very early and it was in full swing!
I love Jake's! :-)

Then checked out this new indoor market 
(well not so new... it's been there 2 years but for some 
reason I've never seen it!!) Nice place! 
Good stuff! I will definitely go back!


More green glass!

McCoy and Imperial planters!

Yay! Floraline!

Fireking bowl

and, loving these garden sprinklers!!
It was a good day!

WEEKEND FINDS

Quick trip to Jakes Flea Market yesterday. Unfortunately we got 
there late so we had to run around very quickly 
as the vendors were packing up. Still managed to score these 
beauties though!! Gotta get there earlier next time!

GUEST COLLECTOR!

I love visiting the home of friends 
Their sense of style reflects their personality, 
their love of nature and their love of animals.
They've got 4 dogs, 2 cats, birds, goats, chickens and ducks!
One of my favorite things in their home is 
Carol's collection of vintage ceramic dogs.
It's displayed in a gorgeous antique cabinet in their dining room.
All breeds! So fun!
Some close-ups!
Thanks Carol for allowing me to show your collection!  :-)
