It looks and feels very much like a Barsony piece, but it isn't signed. If you haven't heard of Barsony- and I'm guessing that many of my northern hemisphere readers won't have- stay tuned, because I'll do a big post on this Australian company soon.
The inside is pretty crappy, but the front is fine, so I don't mind.
It's going to live up on top of my kitchen dresser, and will boost my small but growing collection of 50s stuff.
And as this was an unexpected find, it got me to thinking...when will this collection be finished? How much space will it need?
Will it ever be finished? Or might there always be just one more piece around the corner that becomes a must-have the instant I lay eyes on it??
We all collect something, or things. Above is my collection of costume bangles. Also a small collection, but also growing. Synonyms for the word collection are pile, heaps, hoard, stash, accumulation and mass. Which all make a collection sound...slightly scary I think.
The stand the bangles live on is now full, so next I'll need to find somewhere else to put the more that I will buy, and something to put them on or in. And so on and so forth. And I think we all have this ongoing issue. Just as an aside, see the martini glasses at the base of the stand? Cute, and another of my latest finds.
So I'd like to know, dear readers, about your collection/s. Are yours on display or hidden, big or small, focussed or varied?
How obsessive are you? Will you ever stop? Could you, in fact, stop?
Or are you really just a hoarder in disguise??
