I wanted to title this post "Collector of whatever floats my boat," but a more accurate description of my collecting habits would be "Collector of whatever makes my heart sing."
I have ~
lived on two continents,
lived in four countries,
lived in nine cities,
spent 15 summers in Europe, and
travelled to 39 countries.
That is a lot of opportunitites to collect some pretty cool stuff.
So, what is my collecting philosophy, my collecting style. In my travels through life . . . if I happen upon something I love (in my budget), . . . I buy it.
*it does not have to belong to a
*it does not have to have a perfect
spot in my home
*it does not (within reason) have to be easy to
get home. (where there is a will there
is a way)
It has led me to own an ecclectic mix of very cool things that make me happy.
santon figurines from France
unique chair from Senegal
pottery from Poland
wooden farm lady from Poland
ornament from The Netherlands
rooster from The General Store in Minneapolis
(this one is for you, Suzanne!)
I have carted home lots of baskets from
etc. etc. etc.
I love looking around my home and seeing bits and pieces of . . . me!
What do you collect?
Today I am linking to a beautiful blog, Privet and Holly.
