Well, the title of this post might lead you to think I'm sharing a collection of tabletops, LOL!!!
But, no . . . it's just one of my many smaller collections atop a table. Well, technically it's a dresser, but I think I'm okay in referring to it as a "table". This dresser greets the almost no visitors that come to our front door. Most everyone comes into our house via the garage or the back door slider.
We're informal like that!
Oh . . . lookie there . . . you can see the handle of my vacuum in the mirror! hehe!!! Guess I didn't do such a good job assessing the surrounds of the shot I was taking. Keeping it real, people! ;o)
I really love this old dresser. It was one of the first pieces I ever purchased (60 bucks!!!) at a thrift store years and years ago. I painted the bottom and drawers and restained the top. The top of the dresser is not one piece. It's several joined pieces. One of the pieces is quite warped, so I almost always have some kind of cover on it.
I am serious collector of things (or junk as Hubby refers to them - HUMPH!). Salt-glazed pottery, yellowware bowls, specialty Longaberger baskets, small pitchers, vintage canning jars, plates . . . .
How many pieces of one group of things constitutes a collection?
I'm thinking at least three?
There's one of those DT crosses I transformed with spray paint a while ago, and a cute little DT bird that's scheduled for a makeover . I just can't decide whether he should be heirloom white or oil-rubbed bronze!
Well, in addition to those collections I've listed above, I started collecting vintage cameras a few years back. I thought it was fitting since I love take photos and I'm a scrapbooker.
Oh my! Sorry so blurry.
Didn't realize how badly until I dumped the pics from camera. These two cameras are very special to me. The one of the left, IKOFLEX, was a camera my father purchased in Germany when stationed there near the end of the Korean war. It is in pristine condition along with it's original sturdy leather cover/case. The very common BROWNIE camera to the right once belonged to my Aunt.
I grouped these cameras among some treasured vintage family photos and old thrifted books.
That's my mother as a small girl in the larger frame to the left. That handsome GI is my father. In the double frame is my mother-in-law when she was a young lady aside my father-in-law with his mother on his high school graduation day.
