  A little random collection inspiration for you!

 (images found via we heart it; click for credit )
 
Do you have any collections? I am obsessed with the idea of starting some serious collections of my own this year. I don't have what you would consider a major collection of anything yet. I want to start with vintage Avon cologne bottles because they are just so cool! I have two already so that's a start, right?

I am SO inspired by people who not only take time to collect so many things, but to organize them all and take amazing pictures to share their passion is awesome! There's something about it all that seems very very whimsical to me :D It reminds me of my childhood...I grew up around a lot of collectors and I would be in awe of some of the amazing treasures they had! What kinds of things do/would you love to collect?

I collect fabric, craft supplies, and unfinished projects. Does that count?

LOL! Actually, I do have a collection of the Willow Tree figurines, vintage/antique linens, and am trying to collect vintage baby clothes. I think there's more, but my collection of children is making it hard to think right now ;o)
