A Passion for Collecting

I picked up this great book last week in a wonderful overstock and
second hand bookstore, actually housed in an old church building.
Sadly, the church is no longer used for its intended purpose, but
the next best thing, in my opinion, is a bookstore! This book,
A Passion for Collecting, by Caroline Clifton-Mogg, 2002, softcover,
is a fabulous compilation of a myriad of collections, with informative
comments and display suggestions. I highly suggest this book for
those of you, like myself, who love collecting vintage.


  1. Good morning Willow...Yes we do seem to have our favorite things to collect. I believe one of mime and yours is wonderful books :) What a grand book idea...one quite useful and informative..Thank you for the info. Dee Dee

  2. I couldn't agree more about books! Speaking of, the cover of the one you're showing here is spectacular! My mother-in-law collects bottles like the ones on the cover and she will be very interested in this. Thank you for this great post!

  3. This is the kind of book I would enjoy curling up with. I would love to collect more than I do. Someday....

  4. The glassware with the light shining through is enough to make me drool. Sighhhh! I just can't resist buying beautiful books. My pile of unread books is getting teeter high and 3 new ones arriving via Kalahari.net any day now.

  5. Robyn, I have the same teetering pile. But artists need inspiration and beauty, right?
