"A collection reveals an insight into the collector. The objects that we seek,
enjoy, and display in our homes - whether they are works of fine art or
sentimental keepsakes - open a window to our passions, our whimsies, and
I guess I like too many things, but some of my favorites are:
old croquet balls
cups and saucers
crocks and bowls
I'm sure I left a few things off my list, but you get the idea... I am a collector.
There is the thrill of the hunt followed by the pleasure of building a collection. It's nice to be surrounded by objects you consider beautiful or meaningful. They also become reminders of people and places.
This early find in the college town of Jackson, TN, is both beautiful and meaningful to me.
Certain pieces speak to us, and that's the joy of collecting.
