Collections

 

Collecting objects is an interesting and enjoyable hobby that encompasses

searching, finding, obtaining, listing, displaying, storing and maintaining

 

I have a friend who is a master collector.

She was kind enough to allow me to roam around her wonderful home and take photos of some of her collections.

I love this “cabinet of curiosities”…

a master at layering her displays,  I love the way she places “flea market finds” alongside “fine art”…

-Dewey-

so named because their son received the Dewey-Knight scholarship on the day the pup arrived in his new home.

Ingrid Taylor Collections

The master bedroom is his lair and his daytime perch is right in front of the window where he keeps watch over the neighborhood.

A scratch on the wall indicates it is time for the curtain to open!

I am in love with him!
