My Place and Yours…..My Collection

Don’t you just love it when someone wants to see your collection of special treasures, things that you have accumulated over time, things that you love to look at, to hold, to use, to love, to admire, to be inspired by and of course things that make you smile.

The wonderful theme queen this week Kate wanted a peek at our collections and as Kate mentioned, it’s hard to just pick one, so I picked four of my favourite collections for you to have a peek at.
Hope you enjoyed my special treasures, pop by the ever so lovely Pip’s for more collections.
Thank you Kate for wanting a peek at my special collection..s!

Have a fabulous Sunday and if you are in Melbourne…a very wet one indeed.
