Eclectic collections colored pencil tips colored pencil tips colored pencils

My little pencil tip collection makes me happy. I've had them since I was 7 and even though these days I draw more with my Wacom pen than with color pencils, I still add all the broken pencil tips to my little silly collection.
When preparing my contribution to Gudy's wonderful series "What do bloggers collect?", I realized I collect lots of different things, without considering it to be real collections. I never think like a real collector: I really need that piece to complete my collection. Never. I rather enjoy having a few, than all of them.
And you? What do you collect? Anything as eclectic as the bloggers in Gudy's series?

Oh and in case you missed it, last month I guest blogged at Madame Love (with "artwork" I drew with the pencils above) and shared some happy home inspiration on Happy Interior Blog. I hope you like it 🙂

  1. Thank you for being part of the series, Judith. What I am collecting? Mugs. Mainly porcelain or clay if there is a story behind. And little tea cupsI bring from Asian countries when traveling over there. And I have a 'certain' passion for shoes, I have to admit but that's not really collecting…uhm? x

  2. Hey Judith! So cool to see you on Gudy's blog. I collect spoons from all over the world as I showed on Gudy's blog a couple of months ago.
    I also collect globes, and vases (especially small and unusual ones) for my bouquets.
    See you soon!

  3. I stopped collecting things. I got rid of anything I ever collected during the many times I've moved. there was never anything interesting to get rid of anyways. I love your collections. a bit random, in a very good way :)

    1. Exactly: very random and inexpensive (except maybe for the shoes ;)). I'm glad I don't have to make the decision of getting rid of any of this because of moving like you. Although I think I'd do pretty well without ;) Have a good week, Petra!

    1. Oh wat grappig zeg! Ik vroeg mijn klasgenootjes van toen er ook naar en de meesten wisten er nog van. Het zal toen wel “in” zijn geweest, denk ik he?

  4. Wat een grappige en fijne collectie! Ik loop al heel lang met het idee om er iets mee te doen…heb nl precies hetzelfde gevoel; je denkt dat je niks verzamelt, maar intussen zie ik toch al heel wat verzamelingetjes in huis ;-) Leuk blog-item. Ik ga zeker even kijken naar je linkjes!

    1. Ja zo leuk zijn die kleine verzamelingen he. Zonder specifieke verzamelwaarde, maar toch wel 'n beetje bijzonder. Ben erg benieuwd wat je ermee gaat doen!
