I never really thought of myself as a collector of anything in fact; I worked hard not to be. Every time I think of collections I go back to the 80's and my sister's kitchen. She collected geese for awhile and although at the time it was kind of cool, it soon became a circus of want a be geese. It seemed that she was forever getting cute little gifts from people "I know you like geese" as they would hand her some deformity of a duck trying to be geese.
I also remember the infinite number of "Knick knacks" that surround our house growing up and they seem to over flow into my bedroom, at the time I thought it was all kind of neat, but looking back nothing really made sense. As I grew up and had homes of my own I insisted that, I would not be a "Knick Knack" kind of Gal.
I guess it wasn't until I started looking at blog sites, that I came to realize I too am a collector of sorts now don't get me wrong, I still cringe at the thought of over-crowded shelves of stuff, non-related theme items that just exude gaudy, but I have come to terms that there are certain things I like and certain things that I am drawn to.
That is what today's post is all about Collections or lack Of:
