    I collect a lot of differant things. I really enjoy getting out my pumpkins each year and adding to my collection from time to time. I have in the past gone to the local pumpkin patch and brought home a ton of interesting real pumpkins and gourds but I got tired of losing them too soon. Some don't keep for long. So this last year or two I added to my collection instead of buying the real ones. These last longer!

    My whole wall of wooden boxes. The smaller ones are sewing machine drawers.

    I made several of these geese a few years ago. This was my favorite one and it is the only one I kept.

    You can see how tiny these are. The tiny pumpkins I got at our local pumpkin patch last year.

    I made the flat wooden pumpkin on the right behind all the others. It has leaves on the top

    This is a chicken nesting box. But for now it is a Turkey nesting box! LOL

    These little pumpkins my mom made. They are made from modeling clay.

    The wood box on the dresser I made a few years ago out of barn boards. Some of the flat wooden pumpkins I made also that year.

    I don't have closets so I store stuff around the house. The box with the house on it has some DVDs I don't want my DGS Zach to get ahold of. He is really hard on DVDs

    I made the pumpkin in the top left box. It is the one in the back on the right with the leaves on the stem.

    My top Tom!! LOL

    These three I got at Hobby Lobby between last year and this year. The pear on the left I just got a couple of days ago.

    The suitcase is actually one of my DHs record players. This one is similar to a Victrola and the sampler is one my mom made recently.

    Cool display! Using sewing machine drawers, great idea! What did you do with rest of the sewing cabinets? :thumbup:

    You can buy just the drawers at antique shops. I got them for about $5 ea. I have a whole lot more of them. I use 3 under my table for keeping markers in one and my comp cds in one and my meds in one. I also have a few I haven't used yet. and then there are my thread drawers.
