This week's Fun Monday is all about stuff. Our host, Mariposa wants to know:
Collections... We all have them...and if you don't, you do....you just may not realize it. For some reason or another we all collect something and we collect it for reasons that will definitely make for good reading. So on Monday, I want to see your collection. If you don't have or don't want or CAN'T (wink) show us a picture, then tell us what the collection is in 10 words or less. Then tell us why you started collecting it.
Again, I thought this was easy. Then I started looking around.
Surely I collect something.
Maybe. But when you collect something, it's rather open-ended, isn't it? I mean, has my mom ever said, "Gee. I think I have enough teapots."? Or has any museum decided that it had enough art? When collecting, it appears that enough is never enough. I have plenty of animals, and tempting as it is sometimes, I do believe I have enough.
Same with kids. I got the best one anyway, so who needs more?
I mean, for me, bookshelves are a major investment. And I needed a house big enough to contain my husband, my son, my animals - and my books.
Books aren't just on book shelves. They're on nightstands, the floor, stacked up in the garage, still hiding in boxes (no, they're not all unpacked yet).
A house is not a home without BOOKS.
I need these. My playground for my mind.
