A collection of collections...

I LOVE collecting stuff. Since arriving to the US and having seen such an abundance of cultural decorative stuff everywhere, I got into the habit of visiting flea markets and garage sales whenever possible. I have accumulated an endless number of collections. Usually I just pick one item that I like, and then I happen to find another one or two, and pretty soon it becomes a new collection. Many of my collections inspire my art, and some are actually my own creations (like the bird houses).
Here are some photos of a few of my collections. There are many many more!

I bought your book and I'm loving it.
What an inspirational resource!
I feel like it's the reasonable next step for the zillions of rubber stampers, bookmakers and mark-makers from all walks of life.
Trying to get to San Fran in September (determined by the Dog Sitters schedule- rolls eyes) so I'll call you as soon as I know!
