I've never considered myself a collector of anything really. I tend to buy what I like and that has always been the way I purchase, but this week I got to go home for the first time in a while and I realized there were a couple consistencies in my room. It turns out I have a vinyl collection, a mug collection, and a polaroid camera collection.
I don't have any rhyme or reason for the pieces that I pick except that I like them and isn't that the reason for a collection in the first place? The only mug that has a story behind it is this mug; when I was visiting my grandmother one year my mom and I were helping her clean and we found this mug. It was just sitting on the shelf where it had probably sat for over thirty years. It was so cute and it had a story behind it, I don't have any major reason why I wanted it, it just spoke to me I guess.
