Collecting Things

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

What do you like to collect? I love to hear about peoples collections.

I have not collected much over the years but I do love linens everthing from bed linens to table linens to dish towels, LOVE LINENS. I also like white pitchers here are some of mine. When we did our kitchen these small shelfs were empty for about a year or so. I just did not know what to put there until one day it just happen. I love rugs as well, I don't have but 3 here is my favorite.

Good morning Ginger~ I also love to collect white pitchers. I only have a few, but love them. Have you heard of Maryland China Company? They have some beautiful pieces~ at pretty good prices. Other things I collect are odds & ends of mismatched little dishes, vintage pictures with animals (especially dogs), and OH- linens-yes~ lots & lots of linens. I just can't seem to pass up vintage/old sheets, pillowcases with old lace, crocheting, etc...

Ginger I collect angels. I just love them. My oldest boy has gotten me angels from Peru, and from Chili. Then he usually gets me some to hang on my tree and put outside in the garden.

Hi Ginger, I really love your white pitchers. I have lately become addicted to teapots! I really need to stay away from flea markets and eBay! The rug you showed is pretty. I have a rug I really love, but don't put it down as my cat likes to scratch his claws on it:( I also have lots of old linens that I inherited from both of my grandmas. I just love all the embroidery and tatting, etc. That people did on them. I don't know why we don't care more about that sort of thing now-days. I know that when I make kitchen towels, I don't even consider doing embroidery on them--I just assumed that they will get ruined. Have a great day!

Ginger...your white pitchers are lovely! I collect soo many things it's ridiculous. But my fav things are still my vintage jadeite collection, 40's printed tablecloths & vintage ephemera!
Have a wonderful day...

Hi Ginger, I collect chintz china, buttons, heart shaped rocks, shells, cookie cutter, dishes and anything linen or lace!

Your kitchen cabinets are really pretty! You asked about my kitchen...there is a reason you haven't seen any pictures of it on my blog. It's not very pretty. I'm going to be working on that soon though.

I love your white pitchers. They look beautiful against the darker wood of the cabinets.

I collect a few things. My biggest collection is my Longaberger baskets. I also like to collect old Pyrex and Fire King dishes.

I like Polish Pottery and have some pieces of that too.

Hi Ginger,
I thought about glass doors! I think those would look great! The sign above my stove is a chalkboard I made from an old silver tray. It was on my blog on August 13th.

I also collect jugs. I have one cream pitcher. The rest are mainly fruit motif or shape, such as pineapple, lemon, etc.
For vintage linens I collect crochet, embroidered or lace doilies, hankies and table runners.
