I have a few collections, truth be told I'm not really sure how many. Every time I think I've covered them all, I remember another grouping of objects that would qualify as a collection. Reading this I sound like a hoarder or someone with a lot of clutter. However, I don't collect just to collect, my collections grew out of things that I love. Displayed nicely I don't think a collection has to be clutter.
What makes a collection? 2 of an item? 3? 4? In my case, these are all categories in which I have quite a few like items. In the case of books, I know a lot of people have multiple books, but really bear with me until I do the post on my books and I think you'll agree it is quite a collection.
Off the top of my head I have a collection of books, rosemaling, copper, Disney items, art, international costume dolls, vintage linens and embroidered items, natural items (I'm not sure how else to phrase this), and I'm sure there are others. I'll expand more on each of these over the next few weeks.
However, in the meantime, I'm curious...
What do you collect? How do you display your collections? Do you rotate out pieces or display it all?
