Collecting images...

We're still enjoying the amazing spring color display here. This week it's the pink and white cherry and crabapple blossoms that are in full splendor.I've been reading Susan Wooldridge's book Foolsgold again. I love the idea of her daily "collection boxes" that Susan fills with goodies from her daily jaunts. I have been taking my camera with me everywhere and capturing my daily life through the camera lens. I love taking a walk in the woods and having all my senses piqued. My images are my daily collections. I spy turtles basking in the sun.
We're also heading into peak estate sale time. We have them year round, but it seems that spring brings out the best of the best. Here are a few of my treasures from last weekend.


I love this vintage handpainted chest to hold Chloe's doll clothes.
Hope you're having a great week!
