Don’t you wonder over all the things we surround ourselves with, sometimes. Or the things we collect, or simply don’t have the ability to get rid of, or rather, don’t want to get rid of. Loads of things – the linen closet, china cabinet, a full wardrobe or a bookshelf full of books – or other things. We all have a preference for different things. We buy, we inherit, we get, we make, we collect & so on.
I have a fondness for textiles, right now bed linen & a big love for books. For a long time, it was wooden toys, cartoon movies, & certain plastic figures that my boys collected. Anyway, it’s rather fascinating what & how much stuff we gather over time. Things that may have no economic value, but of great importance for us, mostly because of the emotional significance.
