Do you collect something? Dainty porcelain faeries, or bean-filled stuffed animals? Model cars or old European maps? Maybe you save stones or have a bracelet collection.
I have to guess that almost everyone collects something. Maybe?
I realized, as I was walking the aisles in Sears tonight, that my collection may be a bit unusual. Call it odd or strange, but two or three times a year I am compelled to buy a new set of sheets for the bed. My linen closet is bursting. I don’t know why, particularly, but I enjoy buying new sheets, the search for the perfect sheet—must be 400 thread count or more, be mostly organic, and a pleasing color—is something that makes me happy. My greatest find was 900 thread count mint green sheets. Nummy. I also get quite giddy when I find bamboo sheets (they are so soft). I love sorting through my sheets in the closet, too, just as perhaps a collector looks over her favorite possessions.
I picked up a swell set of bamboo sheets tonight (sort of paper bag color but I’ve decided to call them champagne), and as usual, the cat likes to help me make the bed. What is it with cats and needing to be right there in the middle of the action when making the bed? Maxwell was pleased with my choice.
So I want to know what you collect! Do you have an odd or unusual collection? How long have you been collecting? Would you ever give them up? (I ask because I used to collect Dezine faeries, and now would love to just give the entire collection away; they’ve become dust collectors.) I’m happy with my assortment of sheets. What makes you get all giddy and eager for the hunt?
I’m giving away a box of decadent chocolates that I picked up from Trader Joes. Mmm…if I hadn’t given up sugar these would not last long. Thankfully, for one lucky winner, I can resist, and the box will be delivered intact. 😉
