This is my collection...
I collect all kinds of things. More through luck than intention, I am an accidental collector. This is also partly because I hate to throw things out.
If I looked around my flat I would have to say an ongoing theme is my love for numbers and letters. I have collected a few without intending to make a collection as such, but many of the items that decorate my flat are along a similar theme. I have cookie cutters and old petrol signs and a couple of more industrial pieces. I am drawn to them. I work in the graphics/printing industry and love type. What can I say?
Of course I also love pens and paper and brushes and hand made books and old drafting tools and wooden boxes. And notebooks and diaries? Don't even ask!
I love clocks too - though my family have given me so much grief over the last few years that I have learned to restrain myself and at the moment I only have one in each room. One day I will ignore their head shaking and fill a wall with nothing but clocks.
"This is..." is another great idea from Angela at Three Buttons... Get on board!
