I feel as though I obsess over collecting a new item everyday. Do you ever feel this way? Sometimes I act on it, but usually I don't. Good heavens I'd be broke if I did! I go through Cath Kidston phases where I want to do an entire room like THIS...
I sometimes get the jadeite bug and add a new piece to my little collection. Here are a few I used for a photo shoot last year
Of course there's the "Ironstone Platter" days where I feel as though I should be buried knee deep in them for some reason!
There's also my ongoing affair with anything industrial, like wire baskets. Judging by the photo above, I'd say all baskets are fair game.
And all of this is just leading up to me telling you that I have a new love!
Old wooden crates and boxes.
I recently bought 3 from an etsy shop...for $15 total! Which I thought was a steal. I can't usually find ONE for $15, much less 3. They are small, medium and large like the 3 bears. Why did it take opening my own etsy shop to discover etsy? ! Such a treasure trove of great deals and unique things. A collectors paradise!!
Anyways,the big box is a perfect holder for my hydrangeas. I previously had them in a round egg basket, but on this long shallow table I needed something long and shallow, since it is a busy walkway area. If you haven't yet you should try an arrangement in a long thin box like this. It's so stylish! I love the look.
The other 2, and an old cheese box I had, I put on the hutch to add some contrast to all of the white going on. It's so much fun to arrange and fill them.
What collecting bug do you have lately?
Have a WONDERFUL weekend >>>---♥>
