“What do you collect?”
That question is super easy to answer for some…and super hard for others. Almost everyone collects something. Remember a collection is more than one. So maybe the question should be, “What are you passionate about?”
I have a thrilling opportunity to join with my favorite bloggers for a collection blog tour…and we want to know what YOU collect too!
My mother collects pigs. Not the real-life laying in the mud oinking kind, but the stuffed, ceramic, brass, crystal, concrete kind. My aunt collects new and old cookbooks. My sister collects snowmen, she lives in Tucson.
What do I collect? My first thought was JUNK!
Mike might agree!
But a quick look around the house and I realized I collect spindles!
This old bucket of spindles makes me happy. It really does. Just sitting there looking pretty, and creative, and ready to transform into something great for our home.
I went to the Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market last weekend and what the No 1 thing I was looking for…spindles. This is my favorite.
Loads of detail and an old wheel to boot!
What do I do with all these spindles??
Some I simply display.
But most become something for around the house.
Many of these projects were many BEFORE blogging.
It’s so bad that I’m even wearing spindles!
This is one of my favorite necklaces…
My favorite spindle…among….junk!
I’ve started collecting old silverware. As you can see some need to be plant makers!
Now it’s your turn. What do you collect?
When did you start?
Why did you start?
Let’s get this conversation going on social media too! Use the hashtag, #whatIcollect to find others in the conversation. What that means for anyone not sure, just go to your Facebook or Twitter account and type in what you collect. Then type #whatIcollect. You can then search #whatIcollect to see what others collect. Positive comments are always welcome. 🙂
