{ A Collection Of Favorites }

When I see a beautiful picture in a magazine, I must rip it out! My mother will attest to this. Whether it's mine or not, doesn't really matter. I know, I'm a terrible person. Anyway, I was at the doctors office the other day and during my 2-1/2 hr. wait, I thumbed through a gazillion magazines and brought these beauties home with me. Yup, I stole them. These 3 pictures just so happen to be 3 of my favorite things to collect!

First, I am OBSESSED with Mercury glass. I'm not sure when the fascination started, but I just can't get enough of the stuff. Someday I hope to have a beautiful collection like this one...

And how about this gorgeous plate collection? I must admit that every time I'm at Anthro I'm always tempted to buy a plate or two in their back sale room (ladies, you know what I'm talking about) but can never justify my purchase. However, I think I've found my justification...

WOW! Before making mention of the gorgeous display of milk glass, can we just admire that amazing stacked cocktail table bookcase? Stunning! As for the milk glass, it's always been a favorite of mine. So classic, chic, and an easy find at most thrift stores...

So what do you collect? Or want to collect? I'd love to hear about the fun things you've found and the creative ways you like to display them.
