I collect things.
But I don’t like “collectibles.”
Clear as mud?
I collect utilitarian items. You know, things that get used.
One of my most treasured possessions, is a pair of my grandmother’s black handled fabric scissors. Everytime I use them to cut a piece of fabric, I smile and think of her.
I think most any object when displayed in an artful bunch is beautiful.
And doorknobs (I
stole borrowed this idea from my good friend Carol…she has several HUGE jars of old doorknobs).
Mine are in an old battery jar.
And suitcases and blankets and boots…
And silver baby cups and trophies and cameras and clocks and hotelware….
What do you collect?
