Added a rug.
I guess when the walls, cupboards, drawers, tabletops... cannot hold anymore the floor becomes the newest center piece.
When we renovated our kitchen I had the carpenter cut a long narrow horizontal line along the counter top so I could show the handles to my kitchen knives collection. One regret is I wish I had the carpenter cut it the full length of the counter instead of ten inches.
Mixing practical and beautiful is important to me.
Old things are practical:
A knives sharpener,
An herb sack with the number 25, I like to think it had to do with Christmas and candy, probably not the case, more likely for herbs,
An espresso 1800 cup from my friend Melanie...who moved and it is my way of remembering her everyday.
Silver ornate knives. I kind of have a thing for them. Weird isn't it.
What do you like to collect?
