Love It! The Secret to Collecting

Just because you have a bunch of shit, does not a collection make and there is a secret to collecting…unless you collect shit.  (Display it well sister!) I collect clocks,  I sometimes collect seashells.  I used to collect chickens and roosters, but have given many away…except Foghorn, Punkin won’t let me get rid of him.  I’d love to start collecting wine openers, old skeleton keys, creamware and needlepoint pillows…oh and botanical prints.

The one thing about my collections is that I am really particular.  I tend to look at things that are more unusual, different, quirky and artsy, yet in good taste…my taste.

And now, the secret to collecting.  The secret to collecting is that “you keep it a secret”!

DO NOT TELL FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHAT YOU COLLECT!  Why?……why??? Because you will receive the cheap, plastic, bubblegum machine style, crappy, ugly, worst addition to your collection that you ever had and now you MUST keep it because it came from a family or friend, or at least pull it out every time they come to your house!  This is really annoying.

I am serious here…unless you have no taste and don’t care what you get, you will get a piece to your collection at every party, birthday and gift giving occasion. Even worse, you could get a pair from your cheap family or friends with no taste.  Now you have two of something ugly!

There is an exception to the “DO NOT TELL FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHAT YOU COLLECT” rule and that is this; if your friends or family members are antiques dealers, interior designers, artists or really rich you should tell them immediately that you started a new collection.  I mean IMMEDIATELY, go, run….now….tell them, I’ll wait.

So….I won’t be telling anyone but you…that is, if you are an antiques dealer, interior designer, artist or really rich!
