I admit it, I'm a
Books, photos, bric-a-brac, patterns, EVERYTHING!
My home is filled with vintage stuff, lots of vintage stuff.
I don't know why I collect stuff, I just do.
My parents collected stuff, my siblings collect stuff, my girls collect stuff.
I was out yesterday collecting stuff with my youngest daughter.
OMG it's a family affliction!!!
We had a Thanksgiving lunch with my husband's family at my house on Thursday.
His sister Gina has never been here before so she was exploring every nook and cranny.
So much stuff to see. Floor to ceiling stuff.
After much exploring she discovered my bookcase, (7 foot tall by 6 foot wide) mostly mysteries.
She honed in on my vintage Nancy Drew collection, seems she collects Nancy Drew also.
I have several from about 1957 through 1970.
I loved Nancy drew when I was a kid, the challenge of trying to figure out where the story was going, who was the bad guy, I love me a good mystery. (Who, what, where, when & why, my favorite W words)
She pulls them out to have a look see, checking out which ones I have that she doesn't.
She's coveting my Nancy Drew's!!!!
We look through them, discuss how we both loved them as kids and I put them back away.
After she left I got to thinking, why not give them to her, she would treasure them.
I collect so much stuff, why not share?
So bye, bye Nancy Drew.
Seems I'm not the only
What about you?
What's your collection, obsession?
Till next time,
