I admit freely, easily, even, to anyone who asks: I'm a collector slash hoarder slash "if-you-don't-want-it-I'll-take-it" kinda chick. If someone put it in a garage sale, I bought. If someone trashed it, I dumpster dived it. There is not a minimalist bone in my body. I come by this green-recycler-obsessive-compulsive behavior, not because I abhor overflowing landfills (which I do,) but because I'm neurotic - and I'm only sorta kidding here.
So, to make myself feel better about all that, I've decided to add a new weekly post to the blog beginning in May. It will be called "Thingy Thursday" and as the name suggests, it will serve as a vehicle to showcase collectors and the "thingies" they collect. The plan is to begin with my own personal collections next Thursday, followed by Lynn Goldfinger-Abram of Paris Boutique Hotel, Stan Williams, author of The Find (aka The Elegant Thrifter) on the following Thursdays. Others that have agreed to share their "thingys" are Victoria Smith of sfgirlbybay, Diana Durkes of Fine Diving Chicago and Jessica Enig of Such Pretty Things.
If you would like to play and show off your "thingies", just email me and I can send you the profile questions.
See you next Thursday!
