hoarders anonymous

Last week my friend 
Charity shared 10 Random facts  about herself. She encouraged me to do the same. I decided to share some of my collections.

My acrylic paint is sorted by color. Neutral colors, that I can mix for various skin tones are on the opposite side of the rotating stand my friend gave me.
Most of these markers my friend gave me for watching Little T.

Some of my bracelet collection,I normally keep stored in a small jewelry box.That another friend made for me.

More bracelets in a different jewelry box made by my friend.

Bottom drawer of large jewelry box.

Earrings sorted by color in the middle drawer of my large jewelry box.

My oil pastel collection. I have more, but they were under some papers or something.

Do you think it's possible that I might have a  hoarding problem?

What collections of things do you keep?


  1. Thanks, Teddi! And someone is quite the artist :-)

  2. Oooh, thanks for sharing your collections with us - I would love to have all those art materials!!

    I have a bit of a thing for bed linen and have about eight sets - I could have more but I only like 100% cotton and that's expensive for a king size bed.

    I have loads of hair clips too, my drawer is nearly full after the last purchases, but I am always losing them so they are kind of a consumable. I had a thing for nail polish too and have lots.

    I've recently started collecting vintage china.

    Oooh, and Trollbeads - hmmmm I think I might photograph them for my next post.....

    I'm a hoarder too!!
