So I’m sitting on a pontoon at probably midnight or so with Jason and a friend and the conversation turns to acorns. Why, you ask? Well our friends mom collects acorns, real and fake. They are all over her house. Candles, plates, you name it, they’re everywhere. So we start talking about what people collect.
I’m sitting there and realize, I don’t collect anything!! Nothing, I have no special “thing” I like, no special “theme” in my house. I know a lot of people have themed bathrooms or themed kitchens. Not me. I’m not sure why. I used to collect dolphins but stopped that years ago. I mean I guess I have a color theme, forest green and burgundy, but that’s it.
My mother in law has her light houses and roosters. My mom has her hummels, grandma has her hummingbirds, one sister collects frogs, another sister anything animal print. Even Jason collects business cards and rocks. Does everyone do this?, am I the only one that doesn’t?? Now I feel like I should start something, but what? I like butterflies, I like the rooster theme but Joy does that so that’s out of the question. I’ve thought about collecting those “country bears” and that kinda stuff. Like the gone fishing signs, a cabin theme. I love antiques. My couch is forest green and white plaid and I have some stuff that would be considered “country themed”. My sister in law’s house is kinda like that, she’s got some of the cutest little knick knacks. Maybe I need to go shopping with her!!
So do you all collect something? Do you have themed kitchens or bathrooms? I’m starting to get a complex about this and feel like I should run out and buy a bunch of one thing, lol!!! Hey Sue, Joy lets go antiquing!!!
