Our Sweet Collections...

You know ~ all it takes to start 
an official collection is 3 of one thing...

So what do you collect?

I collect quite a few things, 
under the criteria mentioned above...

cookie cutters, wooden boxes, baskets, old chairs,
vintage postcards, books, canning jars, candles,
architectural salvage, little white bowls, crocks...

and I even have a collection of tarnished spoons,
which was inspired by this photograph.  

I love this verse...

By wisdom a house is built, 
and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.

~ Proverbs 24:3-4 ~

Hope you're having a Sweet Saturday!!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Now I feel bad that I cleaned my tarnished spoons, lol. I collect everything!

    1. Too funny Christine! Give those spoons a little time and they're sure to tarnish again ;)

  2. I have to be really careful about collecting, as I'm an acquisitor of stuff! I could be one of those hoarders on tv if I wasn't careful so I only collect art supplies, that way I actually use them up! Hehehe.

    1. I know what you mean ~ I find good deals at the thrift and antique stores in town, but have to really think before I buy... at least sometimes :)

    1. I happened to see this verse on a blog named "Beautiful Treasures." I have it at the top of my pinterest category "Home" as well.

  4. I love the picture, no doubt a great composition with delicious light and shadow, I like everything in this picture.

    1. I agree ~ it's remarkable work... Only wish I could say I took it!

  5. I used to collect Owls and hard stones. But I also love spoons!! :)

    1. I used to be a shell and rock collector as a girl... I of course wanted to be an archeologist when I grew up :) I still collect stones, only now it's to use in and around my garden!

  6. I collect rolling pins.:) 120 different ones and counting...I know they are out there. I've seen them but cannot afford some of the rare antique ones. I'll bide my time and hopefully find them in a thrift store!

    I love the Prov. verse too.

    Have a great week-end. We are having our first blizzard-like day.

    1. I knew that you collected rolling pins, but that is quite impressive!! I love them as well... but for some reason I only have 3 in my home ~ one vintage for display (although I've used it for making pies), one new, and a smaller one for Olivia :)

      I saw one recently with carved designs around the roller... a work of art! I love looking for vintage kitchen wares at the thrift store ~ hope you find something good ~ and you will, eventually :) I believe God gives us little gifts like that :)

      Isn't that a great verse? Be safe with those blizzard-like conditions! Cold and sunny here... for now. It is Ohio, where the weather can change in an instant!

  7. Wooow....if 3 pieces make a collection, I collect almost everything!!!...but in particular old scissors, and old little sewing and kitchen tools...
    Have a great week!


    1. Vintage sewing notions are so sweet ~ I love old buttons :) I am always looking through the thrift store's kitchen wares for old muffin tins, loaf pans, spoons & forks, salt and pepper shakers... you never know when you'll find a little treasure! Have a great week as well :)

  8. I was going to say if three is a collection ,I also have many....mugs,lanterns,pitchers,tea cups,mirrors,trunks and last but not least KIDS!!!! :):)Hope youe Sunday was nice....Lucy.
