Collections

Do you collect anything? I collect coffee table books and antique perfume bottles, while Ian picks up shells, driftwood and sea glass (and random figurines, but that's another story). When we moved, I we decided to group our collections so they seemed less random and more planned. A pretty bowl filled with shells and sea glass now sits on our bedside table, my perfumes are displayed on a white tray, and driftwood is grouped together on top of some of my favorite coffee table books. As for the figurines? One peeks out at us when we open our medicine cabinet and another is perched on our kitchen window sill. Compromise, people.

I collect sea shells as well from our annual trip to Florida. I think collections are what make a room more unique.

I collect coffee table books as well. We both collect postcards from our travels, still thinking of the best way to display them.

Love your blog. I'm your newest follower!

I love the sea glass and shells. I collected quite a few when we visited San Diego last year but I'm not really an avid collector of anything in particular. When I was little, I collected cat stickers. Did I mention I was the nerdiest child ever? ;)

When I was little, I had a huge shell collection. Through the years I've had random collections that come and go; stamps, postcards, and now I just collect Glassybaby candle votives.
