Are you a Collector?

 I've got a few collections going on......I think I've shared some of my cookbook collection with you before...I continue to add to it.....some I refer to quite often, others, not so much.  Sometimes I like to just thumb through them for the extra reading there is in some of them.

This is my tobacco stick ladder (made it myself) that hangs on my kitchen wall filled with all sorts of gadgets, old and new, and a few other little treasures mixed in here and there.  I've often thought about taking it all down so it isn't so cluttered there but I just can't bring myself to do it just yet.

And a couple parts of my bobbin and spool collection (yes, there's more).

And I've got a little bit of a stoneware collection.....crocks, jugs, bowls.  Old and new.  Scattered thoughout the house, a lamp, a magazine keeper,  sewing or kitchen utensils, but most sitting on the mantles. And you can see above there, I like baskets, too.

I think my collections say a little bit about me. It tells a little bit about who I am and what I do.
What do you collect and what do your collections say about you?

Well, time to get busy.....Enjoy your day!

Funny thing is, I am not a collector at all, but I LOVE to look at and read about other peoples collections. I can't imagine what I would collect if I did decide to collect something and then I would agnonize on where to put my collection. I love your bobbins and spools and your crocks. You have such an interesting and unique home. . . I love it!

Thanks for stopping by to visit.

I love old kitchen tools, I have them in my kitchen with memories attached.

Have a wonderful day.
