Among other things, I collect vintage picnic tins and tablecloths. And because I find them pretty to look at, I keep several on display in my studio (like the tins that live on a custom-made wall shelf, or the colorful textiles draped over rungs of a rustic ladder).
Now that we reside in a cozy cottage, I am mindful to keep it serene and clutter free. Therefore, I relegate most of my colorful collections to my modest workroom. And I can't keep everything . . .
