My three favorite TV shows are Hoarders, Hoarding: Buried Alive, and Clean House. I'm not sure why I can't get enough of watching people surround themselves with mounds of stuff, but its just mesmerizing to me!!!!!
I NEVER want to be a hoarder, but I have to admit that I tend to "collect" a lot of things that I label as "art supplies".
I have a cool art room and as soon as its painted and set up properly I will post some pics. I probably won't actually have the time to do an art project for another TEN years, but hey, it still is an awesome room. So for now, here is my favorite "non-hoarded" stuff in my art room.
I LOVE vintage valentines and I have about 100 or so. I cut these and use them for cards. Some are too cool to use, but most of them are fair game:
I have a big box of faucet knobs. I am using these to make a giant cross, but I'm still searching for a board to attach them to:
Marquee letters from an old sign:
My pregnant old lady salt and pepper shakers. Fertility luck Im guessing:
Dad sent me this awesome blanket...filled with photos from Humble Hearts!!!!
My marker collection!!!!!!! This is only about a third of it. Is it still hoarding if I really do use all of them often????
Changeable Charlie blocks and his aunt (Thanks Dad):
The rug that I LOVE that Boss hates with a passion (and he was still kind enough to buy it for me):
I have lots of old record albums with cute pictures that I will use for a project someday:
An old intelligence test:
A bunch of old children's books that I cut apart for cards:
I like old tool boxes and I fill them with supplies for cards and other strange things I make. I have tiny envelopes in here too. I really have a thing for interesting envelopes:
