| Objects | Whilst Tidying

I am an unrepentant, incessant collector of things. I cut things out and keep them. I bring things home from adventures and keep them. When I am in a rush, I put them in silly places like within the pages of a book. Or on a shelf and then slowly forget about them. Then, dust gathers and makes me sneeze. Or a friend decides to visit which leads to some frenzies cleaning and that is when I find these little treasures all over again!

Here a few things that I have rediscovered this week:

  1. Haha I'm the same, I'm a serious hoarder! It looks like you end up with cooler stuff than me, though!

  2. yesss a proper collector of oddments and misc., like the Kapital Jeans card, reminds me of Tintin for some reason. Love this, I do. You should see my stamp collection!

    Buckets & Spades

  3. Such a cool post! I don't think I'd find anything interesting in my old drawers...

  4. Oh love the joker quote! I think collecting things is awesome, I definitely have the collecting bug myself :)

  5. Oh me too; me very much too! My room at home is full of bits and pieces hoarded for future scrapbooks or art projects. i rediscover them all the time in odd places, even though I try to confine them to boxes and 'organised' stacks.
    They are indeed treasures.

  6. What fascinating little bits and bobs. I am a furious cleaner - growing up, our home was always neat as a pin, which drove me crazy, but it turns out I am more of my father's daughter than I imagined. I rarely keep anything I won't use regularly, which is a bit of a shame - I simply can't help myself. But I do often stumble upon Paris metro tickets in my coat pockets :)

  7. I want those Doraemon stamps! :)

  8. I've briefly stopped collecting things when I moved into my own apartment. I wanted to keep my new place clutter-free. But my collection of old camera's and beer glasses (how very Belgian of me...) is a very clear indication that the clutter-free apartment life is not for me. I also have a 'memory box' where I collect all my concert/movies/holiday tickets and stubs.

    I also loved Jostein Gaarder's Solitaire Mystery! I don't think I've ever heard of a better reason to collect jokers :)

  9. You read it too!! Yaaaay. I've never come across another person who's read the Solitaire Mystery :)

    I do have a sort of memory box thing. It's a vintage mini suitcase and its filled with all sorts of things.

  10. Kapital have some fab branding Mat. They do a different round card for each shop and if you collect them all you get some sort of prize! Cool right??

  11. Show us your collections Jane!!! Please?

  12. I love collections, it's so much fun. My husband collects antique boxes and stamps and old money. And a load of other things. We have them all over the house. I collect vintage bags and tons of other quirky things. I think it's fun, though I will need more room soon, haha :)) These are gorgeous pieces doll Xxx

  13. Could hardly call them collections haha there's no theme, just random junk!

  14. awesome collection!! this reminds me of my long-forgotten stamps collection haha but yours are wayyy cuter for sure!

  15. :) i love those stamps! my brother collected stamps as a kid and he had them from all over and my dad would bring some back after one of his business trips. my brother still has his stamp collection book!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
