I don’t actually have any collections…maybe a few things that I tried to start collections of, but I never really made an official effort to be any kind of collector. Lately I have been thinking that I want to be a collector. A real collector of something. But then, you have to decide what to collect. Here’s what I have decided….
#1. Foxes! I am collecting all things foxy! Particularly I would like to start a collection of fox figurines. From my etsy searches I can already tell they are hard to find, but that just makes the prospect of collecting them more fun and special.
#2. Paint-by-Numbers paintings! I realize I am totally jumping on the bandwagon with this one (late in fact) but I do find the paint-by-number chic very charming. I want so many of them!
#3. Keys! This is one that sort of has come about organically, in that I was fascinated with the fact that so many keyholes in English doors are still shaped in a vintage key shape. The first time I visited the boy I totally got a kick out of this detail, and likewise my in-laws got a kick out of the fact that I was excited by such a detail. So, just this past Christmas my lovely brother and sister-in-law, Neil and Katie, gave me some vintage keys for a present and I think the keys they gave me should be the first few of many. Agreed?
Yes. All in all, I think these will be very good collections indeed!
