  1. A friend sent me a link to your blog and I am an immediate follower! It is also an inspiration for me to keep going with the "My Stash" posts on my own blog,
    www.carmenandginger.blogspot.com

    I know you said you were aware of others doing this; have you seen the book In Flagrante Collecto? If not, I think you would be immediately sucked in...

    Will keep watching,

    Regards,

    Christine

  4. I'm really enjoying this project. It makes me think about the collections that I have as well as the collections that I must force myself to say "no" to because ... so many beautiful things, only so much space.

    Thanks for embarking on this adventure. I'm along for the ride!

  5. Your collection today reminded me that for several years I kept all the tail threads I cut from my sewing projects. I called it the end of strings collection.

    Love this idea.

  8. This reminds me of my grandmother so there is great nostalgic attachment to these images. What a wonderful idea to photograph your collections over the span of a year. I look forward to it.

  12. I just discovered this blog and I love it... You remind me of me. Sometimes I make poems that are just collections of stuff. One has a collection of stuff I found in an attic in rural Sweden. The house used to be the general store for the small town, and the attic had boxes of leftover things in it, such as rolls of vintage wallpaper, shipping tags with the store's address on it, and old cards of metal snaps (as you would find at a fabric store). This last thing fascinated me the most because there were multiple boxes of old snaps, like this was the one thing the store couldn't get rid of.

I am glad to see that people are actually writing about this issue in such a smart way, showing us all different sides to it. Please keep it up. I can not wait to read what is next.
