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.

VINTAGE GLASS ASHTRAYS with ADVERTISING

This wasn't meant to be another 
collection but it seems to be turning into one!

I love vintage glass ashtrays, 
especially from diners and motels…

I pick them up every once in a while
at flea markets and yard sales

I love the vintage graphics...

I better make room...

I have a feeling 11 ashtrays may turn into 100!
Fun!!

  1. I was just at a sale last weekend with a bunch of them. I glanced through them and should have dug a bit deeper..yours are great. I think that 11 will definitely grow!

  2. Perhaps you'll have to look for vintage matchbooks to sit next to them too!
