Are you a collector? Are you fond of collecting items that are valuable? Or are you just one of those who appreciate valuable collections? I am both a collector and I appreciate valuable collections that is why I admire those people who have unique and one-of-a-kind collections of valuable items.

My mom has collections of tableware which was passed on to her by her own mom. They are antique pieces because they are older than my Grandmother. When my mom passed away… I inherited the collection. My MIL, on the other hand, is a collector too. She has a wide array of Pfaltzgraff drinkware for different seasons or occasion.

I really admire both my Mom’s and my MIL’s collections. As for myself, I am more into collecting table linens. I once got hold of an IKEA magazine lying around the house one day and fell in love with those nicely embroidered table napkins and placemats. From then on I would buy a set or two every chance I get that somehow matches my MIL’s tableware collection. Wink* Well, I am hoping that someday she will put it in her “last will and testament” that her collection will be passed on to me… since my Hubby is an only child. LOL.
