This is.....My Collection

This week's theme is a good one! Cant wait to see everyone's collections.... I collect a few things but here are some of my vintage swap & playing cards, love the images and fun illustrations, and being so small they are a tidy collectable!


I also adore Vintage children's books, i have some on display and most stored away from the boys, these are MY special books heehee....again, the illustrations are what makes my heart skip a beat - super sweet!! maybe its the little girl within me that doesn't want to grow up.....oh and cute little decorative pieces are another fav!! there's my 1940's baby and little Miss Muffet, an old Avon perfume bottle found at Rozelle flea Markets for 30cents...

To see everyone's This is....go to Angela's blog!
