tip of the iceberg

I am a maximalist. 
In other words...I have a lot of shit.


I wrote about my crazy collection of pins & brooches and stages of eBay addiction for The Inside Source.


Scarily enough, this is just ONE of many many many collections of weird shit in my possession...whoopsydaisy.

Go check it out!

I will be sharing the madness periodically.
Next up...my paint-by-numbers?

THIS IS TOO GOOD! Wow, I want to wear every single one of those pins all at once.

Scary fact: I am also slightly addicted to paint-by-numbers.

But it has grown in the last year and a half. :-)

I adore vintage brooches and pins as well, although your collection dwarfs mine!

I have the earrings that match the silver lightning bolt!

I also used to collect paint my numbers....but I stuck solely to paint by numbers of the last supper. I figured that would help limit it....how wrong I was.

I'm such a clutter queen, it's criminal. I need an INTERVENTION. Unpacking has been eeeeeeeeeevil.

Oh my god, this is one amazing hoard...eer, I mean COLLECTION :) And there I was thinking I've got a lot of this stuff. ha. I've got such tendencies too, but not just with brooches but with jewellery in general. AND I am SO glad I read this post, because now I've got a good word to use when talking about how I've got too much stuff. A maximalist. This actually sounds really, really good :)

And by the way, this collection is dope. Some of the pieces are really awesome!

about the part of the brain that causes the compulsion to collect. Sometimes I think I'm nearly a hoarder because any time I get more than one of something I essentially start collecting it. Cosby sweaters, owl statues, magazines, salt and pepper shakers, ECT ECT ECT.
