My family despair of my collections! I seem to have collecttions of just about everything starting with the obvious - fabrics, threads, buttons, buckles, bottle tops, wine corks, old keys, marbles (although I could swear Ive lost them!), I could go on!
I knew my huge collections where getting to be a problem when I saw on the News a while back that a tornado had hit Birmingham and they showed picture of houses with their roofs blown off! You could see bits of what people had in the lofts - well I started to worry about a tornado hitting our village - NO not because of losing my roof but at my overflowing but extrordinarly tidy loft - how would I explain that level of collecting to anyone seeing it on Sky News or News at 10! My collection of vintage eiderdowns sit neatly next to my beautiful candlewick throws. Next is vintage luggage, vintage budoir chairs, boxes or daulton china,ten or more mirrors lean up against a pair of wicker manequins legs! oh I could go on and on.....but the men in white coats might take me away!
Come on girls, make me feel better, confess you collection habits to me!!! I dare you!
