Around the house I have small collections of things. Old postcards, art books, bells,wine corks, pitchers. One of my most colorful collections are of balls that I have gathered in the places near and far that we have visited.
In all their glory!
I have picked up these little round delights in our travels. They are displayed on an end table in our TV room. It gives the room a little burst of color. People will pick one up and ask where did you get that. Of course, that begins a great conversation and puts a huge smile on my face because I get to relive a beautiful experience!
For instance this little guy. He is from Greece. Bright blue and a streak of orange makes him a lively addition.
This one came from Holland. Again, the blues, orange, and yellow just say happy!
San Antonio, Texas! The earthy tones of this one just whispers a gentle beauty.
This screams sophistication. It should because I grabbed in Paris. It is very elegant to me.
When I look into this bowl, I see memories, colors, and simply happiness. I have an appreciation of the artists who painted them. It is truly a gift. I look forward to adding to the collection in the years to come.
What do you collect?
