I've never been much of a collector. While my home is filled overfilled with stuff (and I hoard fabric of course), I consider myself a minimalist when it comes to decorative display items. I have beautiful built in glass display cabinets and yet I have no idea what to put in them. Recently, however, I've started collecting unique measuring spoons and measuring cups. There are some really cute ones out there and it's been lots of fun trying to find them.

I think collecting in this day and age is actually way too easy. Assuming the items you collect are inexpensive, finding and purchasing them is as simple as clicking a button on ebay. I feel like I've exhausted all the obvious venues (ebay, etsy, Anthropologie, Pier One, google searches) and it will now be more challenging.

I have a bunch more to show off in another post. These are some of my favorites-- the chicks especially! Let me know if you can think of other places to look for new ones!

What are you collecting these days? Do you think collecting is easier now than when you were a kid, before the internet?

Those are so cute! I was going to recommend Anthropologie, but you're one step (or ten) ahead of me. I have the nesting flowers set from there.
