Collections ~ When is Enough, Enough?




I say NEVER, is enough...isn't that so true of those who are of a creative nature. I don't know about you, but when I am out just browsing and something speaks to me..well then its mine and I will find a place in my home for it. So today, I thought I'd share a number of my collections with you. My home it over flowing with *Eye Candy* that I just can't seem to part with. I just love having *pretties* around me to look at, they just make me feel good.

I will share my love of blue and white pieces, many that were given to me by my mom. Also, tea cups, tea pots, bone china plates, princess house crystal, creamer/sugar bowls, and may unpartnered little creamer or pitchers. Some of my collections pieces are there just because, some are sentimental because they have been given to me by friends and family, and others, well they just speak to me...So I hope you will enjoy my collections as much as I do...




















OOOOPsie....how did this get into my collections? Well, everyone this is me. This is my poor attempt to take a picture of myself...now why can't mine look like my daughters...she always takes pictures for her things and they look so much better...I thought you all might like to see what I *look* like!

Collections are what make a house a home, and your collections are beautiful! I wouldn't worry about "too much." If you love it, keep it around you. It will make you feel happy.
