1. The act or process of collecting.
2. A group of objects or works to be seen, studied, or kept together.
On Sunday I wrote about collecting things and how much I love to see what other people collect. Maybe watching 'Hoarders' has brought this to light for me in a bid to keep my collection very much to a minimum in case I end up like one of "those" people. So rather than indulging in more purse-emptying-antics, I thought I'd delight in your collections instead, so please do share! Photos are such a feast for the eye after all.
To start us off, I'm sharing one of my collections with you. I don't necessarily keep all of these things together as such, but they all have a common theme. Owls. And I know I'm not the only one who likes owls... there are many owlets out there, so I hope you enjoy a glimpse into one of my most treasures collections.
|last year I partook in an awesome owl swap and this|
stunning owl bunting was just one of the many things
inside the parcel I received
|a little collection in our bedroom. the large owl I found |
in Spotlight. the medium owl I found in a shop in Daylesford.
the small owl I got for my birthday from this lovely lady
|one of my many finds while fossicking for treasures at |
Camberwell Market one fine Sunday morning.
Along with a copy of "Scuffy the Tugboat"
|this cute little fella made my day when I found him|
at Melbourne's first Finders Keepers market. Made590 had
a stall there and when I saw him I fell in love.
They have some in white also.
|brooches are another collection I could share with |
you sometime. these are just a few I own. the yellow
one is from here. and those little ones are earrings
which I purchased from Finders Keepers
|this little guy is actually a glowing light which I |
purchased in Amsterdam. except I've taken him off
his light bulb perch
|a beautiful one of a kind silver ring which I received for |
my birthday from my beautiful cousin in Krakow, Poland.
yes, I said "one of a kind"
|this stained glass owl hanging also came from Krakow |
and also was a gift from my family. I am so lucky.
|it might not look like it, but this is a picture which my|
doll of a friend sketched and framed for me for my
birthday. those leaves are actually fabric shapes stitched
onto the paper.
|purse from Mombasa and keyring from Fossil. also |
both received as gifts.
Now it's your turn. Show us what's in your collection. It might be stamps, vintage children's story books, china, figurines, fabric (yes many of us have a large collection of this), Blythe dolls, bugs, tea pots or anything really.
Add your link below making sure that it links directly to your post and not just your blog. I will be eagerly visiting each link as I'm sure others will be too, so go on... show us what tickles your fancy.
Thanks for playing along.
