Inspirational Blog- ‘A Collection A Day’

collection- set of items or objects procured by an individual

For several months I’ve been following the blog ‘A Collection A Day‘ as the author/artist Lisa Congdon posts a different group of objects each day. Some of my favorites so far- golf tees, number 5, coloring crayons, and  light bulbs.

Lisa’s delightful blog inspired me to pull out a few of my own collections which I’ve photographed below-

All my old egg beaters have red handles.

My interest in globes started with the bank in the second row on the left. The smallest globe is actually a pencil sharpener!

Here are just a few vintage postage stamps from Japan. They’re part of a large world stamp collection.

I display these wooden/metal shoe molds on the steps of my stair case.

I love natural objects. All of the bird nests above were found on my parent’s farm in upstate New York.

Some other things I collect- vintage picnic baskets, red and white enamelware, kitchen tools, wicker suitcases, photographs, butterflies, and ABC books.

What collections do you have?

Inspirational Blog- ‘Amateur Couture’

Art and fashion have always had a close relationship. Each often pulling ideas from the other. What a delightful surprise to find the blog ‘Amateur Courture‘ whose author puts a wide range of art work alongside designer clothing with some amazing results. I was inspired by what I saw there, so I tried my own combination with artist Elizabeth Bauman and designer Marc Jacobs-
