Whilst unpacking my new bits and bobs from Sussex, I realised that I seem to have a collection for pretty much everything I own.
I think we all remember collecting things as children - mine were rubbers, pencils, notebooks, book marks and probably a whole lot more.
I wonder what makes us collectamaniacs....em.
I do still indeed collect notebooks and the like, but my collection of 'stuff' now is more varied. Some, and I stress some of my favourite 'collections' are these -
I know you can only knit with 2 needles at a time but my collection of coloured needles do make me smile.
tea-cups - now I know many bloggers have the same fascination for a good old tea-cup and saucer so I don't feel too bad.
especially when I pick up this haul at a car boot sale last week for a good old fiver.
pincushions - there is something quite lovely about colourful pins sticking out of a pretty pincushion
beads - now this one definately goes back to when I was a small girl putting my nan's beads round my neck and then slipping into her shoes - I felt very grown up!
I won't mention jugs, hankies, cushions, crochet blankets, Enid Blyton books, Ladybird books, bags, buttons, fabric, brooches, egg cosies- shall I go on????
What do you collect?
PS - Toby collects the dreaded football cards which are around at the moment and Jack collects toilet roll innards (you never know when you might need one, apparently!)
