I joke a lot about my hoard, but really I try to keep my stuff down to a minimum. I donate a ton of stuff to a twice yearly garage sale that is a fundraiser for an organization near and dear to my heart. I really do only collect what makes me happy and I get rid of what I do not love. At Star Hill I collect milk glass. It is cheap and easy to find, along with being very versatile. Here is my whole collection.

I cleaned it all over the holiday and snapped some pictures before it all got put up. The milk glass is about to need a bigger shelf unit. I have one planned but it is not at the top of the list. I also collect old wooden bowls.

They are rustic and remind me of my great grandmother. I have her wooden bread bowl at Star Hill.

She made sour dough bread in this bowl almost every day. I add old bowls as one “speaks” to me. I have collected 10 of them and keep them on top of the cabinets in my tiny kitchen.

I also collect cream or white colored creamers.

Come on, cream creamers… just typing that makes me smile. They are small enough to be in kept on top of my cabinets in front of the wooden bowls. It is harder to find my creamers than you would think. I don’t want a set, just the itty bitty pitcher and I want interesting shapes. Oh, and my spending limit is less than a dollar. No wonder I only have 8 9 of them. ( The social planner just bought me one tonight.) At the city house I collect McCoy pottery and shell angels and crystal globes. The stuff at the city house definitely is a bigger investment. Do you collect things or am I the only one out there?
