Just Jot It January 17th – Collection


Collection is a nice way to say I have a lot of ‘stuff’. I tend to accumulate things, more than outright collecting them. I don’t go out of my way to find/buy certain items just for adding to an ever growing group of things.

I mostly have books. So many books. There are two 5-shelf shelves, and a 2-shelf shelf, and a huge antique hutch, with the top and bottom parts, that are all filled, several books deep. Then there’s the stacks of books, that are getting taller, too. Some of these have been read, some have not. Twice a year the library has a huge book sale, which I cannot pass up, and the regular visits to the  book stores in town. My kindle is hoarding even more! What can I say? I love to read.

As for other ‘collections’, I have a lot of jewelry, none expensive, because I like wearing a lot of it. I’ll have several necklaces and bracelets on at the same time. Earrings, too, as I have more than one piercing. So, there’s that.

I have a collection of crosses, of metal, wood, and glass, up above my desk here. I find these at yard sales.

Somehow I got into collecting novelty salt and pepper shakers. I was given a set many years ago, and it’s been added to over the years. I’ve never bought any, myself, they are all given by friends, and family. I have entered some of my antique S&Ps in the local fair, under Relics and Antiques, and won ribbons on them. Most of the ones I have are packed away, as I have no good shelf or display case to put them right now.

I know there are other ‘accumulations’ I have, including lots of journaling notebooks…lots! I get some as gifts, and some I buy, especially if it has a cool cover. 🙂

So, hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about some of the things I have!

This is a picture of the S&P identification and value guide I have, and a couple of S&Ps that happen to be out at the moment!



Thanks for visiting! Peace }I{
