I Collect.....

This week's prompt from Kim Klassen's Beyond Beyond class was to capture an image that showcased the things you collect.

Lately, I've been on a vintage camera and typewriter kick. The problem with collecting these kinds of items is space.  Each time I bring one home, my husband says, "That's nice, but where are you going to put it?"    Good question....although I always find a nice place to display these vintage goodies.

The thing is, when I find an old camera (I have 7...some were given to me and others were flea market finds) or typewriter (I'm up to 4 with this weekend's yard sale find), I can't resist.   Do you think there is a 12 step program for this kind of addiction?  Seriously, how can you pass these vintage treasures up?  

One other thing I've started to collect is washi tape.  These little rolls of goodness are much easier to store (I have a basket in my office brimming with them) and oh the fun you can have creating with this sticky goodness.  


So, what do you collect?  Are you a lover of vintage cameras and typewriters like me?  Or do you seek out pretty paper, coins, buttons, china or thread.....  We'd love to know what treasures you seek.

  1. Love your collections. We do have an old camera collection, but they're not displayed because hubby still shoots with on occasion. I collect Franciscan Desert Rose dinnerware - it's displayed and also used everyday (it's our everyday and special occasion dinnerware). I also collect dress forms (all shapes and sizes). My newest collection is small glass bottles. Oh yeah, I collect books too. Needless to say, I also collect a lot of dust...that helps keep Swiffer in business.

  2. Oh a girl after my own heart tape seriously I have far to many rolls.... Typewriters are hard to come by here in my neck of the woods they go for high prices as window dressers pick the cream for window displays...
