What do you collect?
I have various collections, the one at the moment that I am enjoying is my Mugs!
I re-arrange them, use them all the time, have certain ones for tea, certain ones for coffee, certain ones for certain people! Mugs are always used in pairs too - if hubby and I are both having a cup of something, then I will use two cups of the same style. The problem is getting hubby to conform - he sees these mugs as "very nice dear!" but they are functional. A mug is a mug surely? Nooooooo
None of my mugs are particularly expensive, so they are use as well as ornament! I have many others, so the shelf often gets re-arranged, however the time has now come that I have to stop buying them, as I only give myself problems. So I am going to move on, and hubby (bless him) is going to make me a new shelf unit for my next obsession (collection) - Teapots!
Brightly coloured, decorative tea pots. I cannot wait for the spring to come and start going to the car boot sales to make a start on this! Tea pots are ok, more mugs on display would make me the "mad mug lady" I am told!!! and we can't have that!
