Collecting comes easy!

A collection of perfume bottles...

When asked, "what do you collect?" -- The answer is never easy.  What does come easy is Collecting!
What do they say - three makes a collection.  Well then, I guess I collect quite a lot of stuff.  Just scanning the area around my computer table in the kitchen, I see the following collections:
  • children's brooms with red, green & blue handles
  • yellow McCoy pottery -- am especially loving the polka dot pattern these days
  • round graters (try them with a candle)
  • spice tins
  • Ironstone pitchers
  • Enamelware
  • blue bird dishes
  • frogs
  • Wooden German figures:  little ladybug holding an umbrella, girl with a bird...
Oops, just spotted a Pie Bird -- hmm...just one right now.  A new collection?

Yes, collecting comes easy.  Editing my collections every now and again -- a bit harder, but necessary.

What do you collect?

Sounds like you have some great collections.. Sometimes I don't think I collect certain things, and then like you I look around and realize that I do. Lezlee

I am always amazed to take a moment and just walk thru my house -- if I think "what do I collect?" and consider 3 a collection -- wow. I guess for me it is the gathering -- when I find one item I fall in love with, it comes natural to keep adopting more.

Kari from Meadowview Farm said...

Dawn...I visited your site - enjoyed your collections. And your flowers!!!!! Do you offer a comment section on your site or just the email comments?

Kari, There should be a comment form??? I will double check. Thanks for looking at my site... It is so fun to see what others collect and enjoy...

Kari, I checked my blog out. It seems the comment form does not show up and the only way to comment is to go to the bottom of the post and move your mouse over to the right of the post/time area.Then the comment sign comes up and click on it and you can post. I do not see how to change it on my settings? Any ideas? I have tried everything I know to try???

Hi Dawn:
I think you might be able to fix this by choosing "pop up window" under the comments settings. Then remember to pick "save your settings".
