My collection of blue willow ware is big enough to feed the family including serving dishes. It has become our "good dishes" for holidays. Whenever we are in antique stores or thrift shops I look for more. I have a few pieces of red willow and even a few green ones. Time to stop this collection, some of it is stored in the garage.
I also have quite a collection of quilt books found in the same antique stores and thrift shops so they are not all new ones.

I used to collect Boyd's Bears and still have a few on display here and there among the quilts. I also collect sewing, needlework,quilting and craft books. I would like to collect grandchildren but so far my collection is pretty small- only 2.

Creamers and other small pitchers. This started when I inherited my great grandmother Nancy Jane's very plain off white creamer.

As for the dust....I tell DH that if he doesn't put holes in it, no one will notice

This is so interesting! I was thinking about it today as I wandered an antique mall! The answer is: too many things. Old cookbooks, flower pictures, old postcards, old illustrations of babies and children, old heavy clear glass serving pieces, etc etc. It's my husband's fault. He's encouraged it so I would go antiquing with him! I feel like a hoarder.....
