The New Collectors by guest: Brooke Reynolds

Brooke Reynolds

It appears that my collecting gene has been passed on to my two children
(shown above). Children love to stop and stare at all kinds of things as
they wander around: bugs, leaves, sticks, etc. As I wrap up my week
here, I leave you with one last collection that is not mine. This one
belongs to my 4 year old son. He's been picking rocks up for a few years
and keeps them in a shoebox in his closet.

I've loved being with you all week. A big thank you to Rachel for
letting me share a few of my collections. I know there are so many
others out there who collect odd bits of things, maybe I'll start a
regular column over on inchmark where people can share what they collect
and why. I'd love to see what you all have stashed in your desk drawers!

Make it a lovely weekend!

A big shout out and thank you to Brooke... hasn't this week been so fun seeing all of her fantastic collections? Inchmark is definitely one of my few must-read daily blogs, I am inspired by Brooke and all of her wonderful projects. I think this is an excellent last post for the week, I echo Brooke's sentiments of making it a lovely weekend! Have a great one everyone.

i've loved all of these posts--but this one especially reminds me of myself as a little girl. i didn't seem able to leave a family vacation without a pile full of sea stones! happy weekend to you both!

those look like the stones we collect in Union Pier Michigan on Lake Michigan. I've also really enjoyed these posts. Some new ideas - things to ponder- what I have overlooked. Love your idea about a section on your blog for collections...that would be so interesting to see what people stash away...thanks!

Cute! I used to have a rock collection when I was little. I wonder what ever happened to it...

Each of my children are collectors. It all started with going to antique stores. They wanted something they could buy so they chose items that appealed to them. Now they are excited to go to tag sales, thrift stores and antique stores to see if they can find something to add to their collections.

Lovely series of posts---Inchmark is indeed a daily inspiration! And I'm convinced that collections look that much better when arranged neatly and photographed as brooke does---instead of crammed in a closet like mine are!
