  3. Where do you keep all of these collections??? I collect ginger jars (duh, who doesn't?), coffee mugs (the bigger, the better), brass goodies, shoes, and I'm currently working on my book collection. What does that tell you?

  4. Agreed. I collect books, art, lyndon johnson paraphernalia, and antique valentines....and I hoard fabric and enormous necklaces. Add my kids rock and momiji doll collections, and you've got a messy house.

  8. I simply love those kinds of photos. I don't collect anything, but clutter does seem to pile up in an orderly, obsessive-compulsive fashion in my room.
    I knew a family of Brits with this huuuuge collection of vintage frige-magnets. Dennis the Menace, loads of other Beano characters, Thomas the Tank Engine, Clangers, you name it.

  29. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!
