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!

  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!
