Show Me Wednesdays! Show your newest collection!

Hmmm, my newest collection. Well, it's hard to admit to a newest collection -- because I just moved and I was supposed to be paring down. The family (aka: the movers) would not be at all amused if I had a newest collection. but shhhhhh, I'll show you my newest collection of rubber. Here are the Catherine Moore stamps that I ordered a year ago that just came in :) . And an adorable birdcage from Just Johanna (see what Ludgera did with it on a bird ATC here -- you need to click on the image to make it larger!). And this M that I've wanted forever -- and the price finally came down. And this double stamp of chandeliers. I'm not sure what I'll do with it, but I KNOW it will make some great wrapping paper. And will look nice on a t shirt.I do have a spectacular collection of green and turquoise fiesta ware -- but I can't show you that. It's in storage. I think that it's even in another city..... someday I'll have everything here, in one place...... I collect old green, turquoise and pink dishes too -- not only fiesta...I want to start a collection of pink and green depression glass....

But my biggest (and heaviest!) collection is books. I've started to use the library for fiction books. But mixed media books and magazines are an obsession for me. I read and re-read them. Over and over and over. Oscar Wilde said "If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all". I have always read my books over and over. Ray has only read one book over again -- The Lord of the Rings. And he reads A LOT.

Your secret is safe with me I will not tell! What cool rubber stamps! A collection you can create with is even better! Hope you get all of your collections back home safely and soon. I'm so glad to see you!
