Collector

I have been thinking of starting a collection of something for a while now. But the thing with collections, it's something that happens with time. I couldn't just go out and buy a collection (what's the fun in that?). I feel it's the time spent looking or the pleasant surprise of coming across something unexpectedly that makes collecting fun.

So, a year and a half later, I finally came up with a mini collection of glassware and plates to call my own.
Most items were thrifted, while others I got for free. Though it doesn't look like much, what I love most about my collections, is that I can tell you a story behind every item; the how, where, when and why.

That's it for now, when my collection grows bigger, you can have a look again.

Happy weekend!

What a lovely collection of plates and glasses! And you're right about the thing that a collection is something that happens with time! Do you just keep them all together in one place or are they spread through the house? I love collections! It's just something so very personal ☆ミ(o*・ω・)

ok, you probably use the plates *≧▽≦) but people sometimes decorate their walls with them so I thought I better ask..
