Virtual Tour: Collections Part 2

So, there were so many elephants, I decided it had to have it's own post.  Here are my other two major collections!

My second largest collection is salt & pepper shakers.  I fell in love with these as a child, due mostly to the rainbow on the cloud set.  After moving out of my parent's house, I searched all over for the company that made that set, only to find out my Aunt made them in ceramics class years ago!  Again, every year I tend to receive at least one or two sets, and I love them!

My third largest (or tied with second largest?) collection are my vintage cameras.  This collection is tricky to get into... after taking a few classes with my Canon AE-1 and getting my Nikon D80, I began to obsess over all things photography.  I loved the character of various cameras, and realized that most modern cameras are less distinctive.  I got onto Etsy one day and bought the Wittnauer Scout.  Then I found the Arrow mini camera.  I began searching for cameras whenever I could find one at a decent price.  Some I bought, like the Polaroid iZone, because I found packages of film in boxes of my old possessions.  Most of my collection was a gift from Bear's parents, and belonged to his grandparents.  I was entrusted with them because they knew I would love and cherish the cameras and take care of them.  I was and still am so honored about that!

 So, there you have my three largest collections!  Elephants, Salt & Pepper Shakers, and Cameras!

I would love to see your collections!  If you have a post about your own collections, please leave a link in the comments!

  2. Your collections are amazing! I feel a little strange saying that I collect nothing. Not a thing. I suppose it's because I really detest dusting. But after seeing this, I kind of want to collect something....something that requires no dusting. ;)

  3. Beth- thanks so much! I am so happy to have you as a follower! :)

    Jo- if you keep your collection in a museum display case (that's just what they are called), you can avoid dusting most of the time! I think there are some sold on and eBay. Collections are such fun!
