Another one for the Collection

Over the years I have had many collections.   I'm sure it must be something to do with my obsessive nature or maybe it might just be that when I find something I REALLY like - I just have to have more than one!

I've been through my "cow" phase when literally everything in my home was a black and white cow - plates, cups, clocks, towels, figurines, paintings, cookie jars.... you name it, I had it.  If there was a bovine in the building - I could spot it at 50 metres.  

Then there was my chicken and duck phase..... my sheep phase.....my votive candle phase......the list goes on.......

Thankfully  - I am now a reformed hoarder.  I have embraced the concept of controlled minimalism and regularly de-clutter as a form of Zen meditation!


Well I sure am!

Who am I kidding?    

Once a collector ALWAYS a collector! 

Take this gorgeous little ceramic birdhouse.   When I walked by Bed, Bath and Table and saw it sitting there on the Clearance Table - all sad and lonely looking.......well of course I had to have it for my birdhouse collection, didn't I?   The fact that my birdhouse collection is fast taking over every spare nook and cranny in the house - well minor detail really.

I just love the shade of turquoise and the cute little bird perched on top.  I think it might be a budgerigar?

I LOVE my birdhouse collection but this is the ABSOLUTE, VERY LAST, NEVER AGAIN one I am EVER going to buy!!

Do you  believe me?

  1. Hmm, somehow I don't believe this beautiful birdhouse will be your last! ;-) But I feel a special kinship with people who collect things since I'm a collector too!

  2. Hello lovey,

    Do you know how many times I've tried to comment on your blog...and failed recently? LOTS AND LOTS!! Grrr....my Blogger was playing up but it seems to have regained its civility now. At least!!

    I love your lovely birdhouse - what a gorgeous colour!!

    Have you found your blogging mojo again? I'm forever finding and losing and finding and losing mine!!
