No such thing as too many...

I have always loved seeing the treasures people collect. My GG has tons of collections. Cupie Dolls, Amish People Figurines, Dressed-Up Cows. The list goes on. My mom also has some fun collections. The last few years she has started collecting Willow Tree Angels, and my favorite collection of hers, are these Vintage Fannikin Statues. She has them up in her plant shelves. They are called Fannikins because each of them have their little fanny's hanging out! Aren't they darling?


Since I've been married, I've wanted to start a few collections of my own. The first one I started were Cherub Angels. I don't know what it is about them, but they are so precious! So I've found a few, and hope someday I will have a lot more! I actually got the first one as inspiration for a baby nursery. One day when I have a little girl, you'll see whats been going on in my head for months! (Yes I day dream about decorating her nursery!)



My newest collection is Apothecary jars. I just got my first set of three. I can't wait till I have them all over my kitchen filled with candy and cookies! All different shapes and sizes...I'll have to glue them shut so I don't eat all the goodies. Decoration only.



And of course, I love gold ornate frames. Most people my generation don't love gold. They'd see a frame (or anything thing else for that matter) this color and either walk right past it, or think of painting it another color. Not me, I search for beauties like these!

And one of these days I'm going to start a Clock collection (like Chez Fifi's) over my staircase. I LOVE the look of this!


And of course, my Key collection!
So, I'm interested. What do you or would you like to have a collection of?

You dont know me, I totally trailed over from Lauren's feature of you, what a cute blog you have. I am all about the keys! However I have thought about those gold picture frames-so cute! If only I could find the right spot for something like that in my house.
Thanks for the cute ideas!

Dido. I love collections! I have an apothecary collection...I had to collect them for my reception :)...I also LOVE candle stick holders...cake stands...mostly sterling silver things. I love frames of all shapes and sizes. And, like you, clocks. Clocks are amazing...I love them! (not just wall clocks) I dont know I love too many things that I would love to collect..

Whitney said...

Hey I want to do the same thing with those jars someday. Great minds think alike. I love the idea of collecting things. At the moment I have a humongous collection of diapers. and not clean ones for that matter.

Noelle said...

Mine is clocks too, I only have like 5 right now, but I'm working on it. I really like the apothecary jars idea but my kitchen was too small in our rental, I'll change that in the new house though. Thank you for the good ideas
