something that is collected; a group of objects or an amount of material accumulated in one location, especially for some purpose or as a result of some process: a stamp collection; a collection of unclaimed hats in the checkroom; a collection of books on Churchill.
For some time now I've been wanting to do a post about collections.
This idea came to me several months ago when one of my fellow Bloggers, Rebecca from "Life and Godliness"
did a post about a collection of beautiful tins that she had.
I had started noticing that I had several tins around my house. It seemed strange to me as I never consciously gave these tins a thought.
I had picked one up here and there without giving a thought about collecting them. I just knew that if I spotted one that I liked, I would purchase it. Thrift stores are a great place to find them!
This got me to thinking and looking around my home. That is when I realized just how many little collections I had acquired over the years.
This also made me wonder if there are others out there that may have collected things over the years unconsciously. I think that most of my collections I had intended on collecting but then there are others that just started and I have no idea why!
So I have decided that about once a week, I will show some of these collections here. Some of them are quite nice and some a bit odd. I guess it's just a matter of personal taste.
I am going to start today's collection with one that really isn't mine while it is in my possession. This was my mothers collection. I remembered her collecting them when I was a teen.
When mom passed away, my daughter Ginny expressed an interest in this collection. So she packed them up and left them here for me to keep until someday she could bring them home or I could send them to her. In the meantime, I decided to display them, a different one each month. The following photos are self explanatory as to why.
January, February and March.
April, May and June.
July, August and September.
October, November and December.
I think it's quite a cute collection.
I hope that you enjoyed today's collection.
I'm not quite sure which collection I will post about next.
Stop by next weekend to see!
