Collections


I am a collector of sorts.  Milk glass, vintage post cards, mid-century brass home decor, and antique books are among some of the things I collect.  All the items above came from antique stores, thrift stores or yard sales.  I truly adore items with character and with a story behind them.  What do you collect?

Collecting is so much fun - you'll never know when you'll discover the next amazing piece. I collect all sorts of things too, but my main collection is glass paperweights. Lyndon would say that I hoard, not collect!
Lovely pics Rachael! x

These are such charming photos Rachael. I used to collect so many things when I was younger, but had to let most things go when I moved to Italy. So, I just kept my postcard collection.

p.s. you totally deserved the award!!

Have a fab day sweetie!|

Love your photos of collections! It makes me squeal with excitement! I just LOVE the look of antique books--especially when they look like they've been read through countless times!

Oh those are beautiful collections. I wanted to start a tea cup collection. I do try and collect old hard cover books and I find them at op shops or I go to this thing called the Lifeline bookfest. Lifeline is a charity and they hold a bookfest twice a year.
