Collecting has been a passion for me since an early age.
Beautiful, unusual, & mysterious things have always fascinated me, & that's why I (& so many other folks out there) delight in seeking them out & decorating my life with them. Their kind brings a little magic into our lives, especially when the times are challenging.
Sometimes, the collection is all that keeps one going as trouble rains down all around.
Anyway, I admit to being something of an enigma. Never went out of my way to be, it just happened that way.
I don't fit in any of the boxes.
1. A Venetian glass mirror of diminutive size in which I find myself pleasantly entrapped.
2. Victorian art glass, my grand passion, & the colours of these pieces complement my flag.
3. What I adore about the Victorian aesthetic is how superbly odd it is - & it suits me perfectly. Mingled with some glass & porcelain hand vases is a brand new, plastic Halloween decoration that looks right at home. A memento mori that makes me smile...
4. Today, I purchased a scented candle, & this little note came with it, rather like a fortune cookie - "the enigma of him"....how appropriate!
