Collected Curiosities













I find the most interesting thing about collections and displays is what people choose to collect or set on display and what it might tell you about the collector. Old signage, walking canes, pink timber finials, and a clutch of ostrich eggs tell me I like the way this person thinks.

I love these photo's, they look so intelligent, really.

I'm going to pay special attention to my displays from now on...this has made me a little nervous.

LOVE. I love the rustic look of these, very pretty. I am CRAZY for chess boards and checkers boards, just love the way they look. Would love to have a collection of them someday. Oh, and backgammon too, so elegant!
