collections :)

I have a serious obsessions with collections.  I have all kinds of little collections and I have found some others, online, that I think are wonderful.
I may even have to start some new collections after spotting these :)

I absolutely love love love Rubyellen's vintage bocce ball collection.  The colors are amazing and it's so fresh and original.

I also saw this jar of vintage Risk pieces on Etsy and I think it may be something I need to snag and start collecting!   Adam loves this game.  He is the only person I know who can actually play this game the whole way through because I heard it takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r.
These colors are amazing.

Another fresh little collection is this one!  I love the vintage garden hose nozzles.  I'm not sure what I would do with them but I could definitely see this as a collection I would have someday :)

And that same etsy shop has this adorable collection of vintage tin saucers! So pretty! I love the color scheme here and the patterns :)

Are there any unique collections that you have or that you have seen online somewhere?  I would love to check them out :)  Are you a collector too?
I hope you all are having a great week.  I have been spending time with the other art teachers in my school district creating curriculum.  It may not sound fun, but it seriously has been a blast.  I love those ladies!
I'll be back tonight with your next prompt as soon as I finish the my journal page.  This one is giving me some problems :)



  1. I love the black and white rose plate!!! Looks like traditional tattoo art.
    My mom gave me my dad's old collection of hot box cars. They are from the 50s and are adorable! Also his coin collection with coins from around the world. Whenever I get into our new house and get them unpacked i'm going to do a post about some of his stuff!

  2. I collect rolling pins! Old vintage ones. I don't know why I'm drawn to them, just am. I also collect vintage kitchen tools.
    And I have a few aprons too.....

  3. I collect old suitcases. We don't exactly have a gigantic space for them either... :) oops.

    my newest collection started a few weeks ago. I fell in love with that braided bracelet trend and started making them out of EVERYTHING. I even did a DIY tute on my blog for some I made out of old tshirts :)

    fun accessories isn't such a bad collection to have, right?


  4. Have you seen the A collection a day -blog? (http://collectionaday2010.blogspot.com/)

    That amazing woman took a picture of one of her collections (sometimes she drew a collection instead) every day for a year. Those pics are amazing, and there's lots of vintage items. I heard she's making a book of her collections now. So cool!
