Random collections and corners

I took a few random photos around my house. I decided NOT to photograph my collection of washing that hasn't been done. Or my collection of toys that need picking up... etc.

No.. I found corners that made me smile!
I would like to add that literally everything you see in the photos is thrifted. Including most of the shelves etc.

The block set was from a junk market in Paris. 

And that's just a few random collections from within the walls of my crazy house.
Happy Days

I love seeing peoples' collections and your stuff is gorgeous. I also have the huge pile of dirty washing and toys all over the floor collections, plus the piles of old letters, magazines etc. that lie around the house forever before I sort them out. xx

Who needs to dust when you can just look at all your colourful collections.

I love your collections! Those match boxes are such things of beauty and if I ever get to Kiwiland you'll have to hide the peace sign tin and the love birds or I might be tempted to nick them! x

You have so many beautiful, colourful, gorgeous things! And arranged so delightfully too. Don't worry about the cobwebs, I collect those too... xxx

Oh my lord! I LOVE your sifter collection - what beautiful amazing patterns and colours. I've got a plain old tin one...need to find something a little funkier like yours! Also, I love that a lot of your thrifted stuff in the pics, come from places with meaning to you, like the tin you've had since you were 10. Wow. I wish I'd discovered thrifting when I was younger!
