Collecting You*- Blogtoberfest: de quatre jours

 I learned, just the other day, that I may be a collector! (Like they say you never stop learning!)

I would never have described myself as one, but for years I have been collecting things, and now I realise I may indeed be a collector!

I have enjoyed accumulating various items of a similar nature for years, but I had never actually thought of my things as collections until now. Tinniegirl recently gave me a beautiful book as an early birthday present ...

Which came in a beautiful tin ...

(Which may or may not form part of a collection of tins I may or may not have ...)

... and now I have a completely different view of what I have been doing all these years. Yes it seems I am a collector |kəˈlektər|, noun
a person or thing that collects something, in particular
• a person who collects things of a specified type, professionally or as a hobby

NOT to be confused with a hoarder |hôrd|, noun
a stock or store of money or valued objects, typically one that is secret or carefully guarded

It seems that blogging every day in October for Blogtoberfest may bring out some of my - what I now call - collections for your perusal.

If you read my blog you will know I love to read. What I have discovered is that along with that pastime, I may have been accumulating bookmarks. 

Stay tuned, you never know what else will pop up. I have discovered collections within collections within collections .... oh no when will it stop!!!!!

I collect my information then I stow it all away
Call me when you breeze through 
to your appointments
The work you do
Call me, 
I'm collecting you

  1. haha, I thought there would a pic of the books! Great bookmark collection, can't wait to see some more of your collections!

  2. That is one fabulous collection of bookmarkers! I'm glad I'm not the only one who 'collects' such things, though I'm told that if you have 3 of anything, it's a collection! =-)

  3. I'm looking forward to seeing your collections on the blog this month.
