question of the day

What do you collect? Off the top of my head, I can think of 5 collections:

1. vintage glass containers/jars
2. postage stamps (especially birds, butterflies, and stamps from Malaysia & Singapore)



3. India flower vases
4. vintage cameras (of course! I have a particular love for Kodak cameras & Polaroids)



5. Orchids (I now have 5 plants living in my kitchen)


Do you collect something unexpected? I will admit, I never thought I would be a dorky stamp collector..... and yet, I have a great collection of pretty stamps. So, I will wear that title proudly!


Got to run and pick up the girl from art-camp. I have a bunch of projects to share for Crate Paper this week and a fun little giveaway as well. Be back soon!

Lovely stamps, Tara! I think I have too many collections! Vintage buttons, vintage Christmas items, deer, and one of my newest obsessions...vinyl Simpsons figures by Kid Robot. I don't even watch the Simpsons, but they are SO cute, I can't resist. I haven't done a proper blog post in a while, but your post makes me want to do a post about my collections! Maybe I will!

Hope you're well,
-Lindsay

We collect vintage glass marbles and display them in old glass milk bottles...so I guess that's 2 collections.

I'm so jealous of your vintage camera collection! I collect old ornate picture frames and milk glass vases :) My bf is starting to get a little irritated with all the frames...oh well

I used to collect all kinds of things... sand from foreign countries, for instance. Then I tossed it all because I found myself with too much stuff and no way to display it!

Vintage Blessed Mary figurines, both porcelain and plastic. Old glass bottles. Old buttons and spools of thread. Old compacts and perfume bottles. Is that too much collecting? LOL!

Jill said...

I'm a dorky stamp collector, too! :) I also collect postcards and buttons. I'm sure I'd be an even bigger collector of all things collectable if I lived near a good flea market, but alas, here in Hawaii there's slim pickings.
