I have six bags of various types -- but that's not a collection. I have several hundred art books that I treasure and refer to all the time -- but it's not really a collection either -- just a group of books I acquired over time to educate and inspire myself. Also have a few paintings I love and would love to have more -- but hardly a collection. A collection is usually built deliberately, with the intent of bringing together many high quality examples of something. Are you working on any kind of collection? Shoes? cookbooks? jewelry? please share . . .
