The problem with a collection is that it needs to be displayed. To my way of thinking I don’t want to invest time, energy, and frankly money, just to keep it hidden in boxes. But collections take up space. And then to do it in a way that, as my wife is concerned about, doesn’t begin to look like a hoarder lives there is a challenge. Well we have two guest rooms now that our kiddo has moved on and so one is themed for “Disney” featuring some special decor and a few random souvenirs. We don’t “collect” Disney items per se.
Our other room has been given over to my Starbucks collection of ornaments and various items. My cards are framed in my office at work. Enjoy the pictures.
