Are you a serial hoarder?
Oh please tell me you are.
Maybe hoarder is too harsh a word. Collector sounds much nicer.
Are you a serial collector? As in, "Hi, my name is Amanda and I am a serial collector."
"And what is it that you collect Amanda?"
"Oh, this and that, small things, interesting things, I'm-not-really-sure-what-they-are things (cue Japanese stampy things in image above), old things, I can't help myself things, and other general paraphenalia, generally described by my husband as 'junk'."
"But also old bread knives, railway china, old kitchenware, Carltonware, bottles, old signs and anything with a font on it, fabric, design books, magazines, tins, shoes, practically anything handmade, but especially beautiful hand made ceramics, dahlias, jugs, Crown Lynn mixing bowls, old teaspoons, old china, chairs, indian printing stamps, old pharmacy ephemera, cards....don't forget the general paraphenalia etc etc etc, and lately something of a predilection for light fittings & old filing cabinets."
It is only when one has to pack most of her collections up, albeit for a short time, that one wonders if she has a little problem?
What do you think?
