Why do some of us collect so much stuff? When I arranged these few shells on this plate I realized that I just keep on collecting more and more. Every year we go to the beach for a week and I come home with bags of shells. When I was putting them away I noticed that I already had 3 large bags and when I dumped them out I chose this assortment to display. They are all lovely. I enjoy the shapes, textures and colors of them. I had these ones from last year so why did I need to collect more? I wasn't even appreciating the ones I had. They were just in a bag in a closet.
If I see a piece of blue and white china and it is cheap I'll buy it even though I have more than enough. If you're a quilter you know what I mean because you have a stash somewhere.
So my question is- why do we collect stuff?
Hope you have a great day.
