corner view "collections"

Well if you don't know already, I'm the kind of person that collects lots of different things. My Mom calls them knick-knacks, my Dad calls them junk or geegaw. Little glass figures, candles, buttons, pretty stones, beads, crystals, shells from the nearby beach.

Last year when we went to Venice, Italy, we saw some glassblowing. We each got a set of little glass creatures. My brother and sister were nice enough to give me theirs because my birthday was soon after and they had collections of their own.


To me, collections are little irrelevant things that just make you happy every time you look at them. 
Little collections of joy!

Thank Francesca for the great topic! And for more Corner Views around the world, go to Jane!

I remember that day in Murano! I love the little fairy best, we have had that a long time.

I think my husband would call my collections junk too if he were allowed:) I'm glad you have a little collection from Italy!
