Tote Collection
Box collection
Some of my treasured collections displayed in the studio.
Canvas tote bags (All of them from Bookhou except for the red bear paw from Small Batch Production), old cardboard boxes I've bought from several Etsy shops
& blue glass mason jars.
I can't wait to get my hands on the new Uppercase book:
Collection A Day by Lisa Congdon.

What I find most fascinating is that you seem to own a lot of things but it all looks so lovely and neat!

Collections really make sense of 'stuff' don't they. They make you look at your stuff differently. Thanks for sharing more of your world. Lx (Ps. my husband just brought home a copy of issue 8 of Uppercase magazine- the people who printed Lisa Congdon's book?!! It's such an amazing publication. I'm feasting on inspiration tonight.)

Dear Geninne, the way you arrange things in your studio is a constant source of inspiration for me! Those mason jars are perfect - it's so much fun to discover them at flea markets :)
And did you make those magnets yourself?

Oh my, that book is perfect for me. I can live vicariously since I have limited space for too much collecting.

Superlove there. I hope you have a chance to stop by my blog, since you showed a mason jar -- I went antiquing and got a really good shot of one with rocks in it.
