New Collections

A few new collections started for 2011. Well, these are collections that I just realized I had begun with no real purpose or intent. But there they were grouping themselves together and whispering their secrets.

I especially love the dried pumpkin stems with the long tendrils and unexpected shapes. The "extra button" envelopes are kept with their brothers in a large glass footed jar on my desk. My favorites are the ones with the gray font and little inscriptions from previous owners...the black coat...Emily's dress...

Does anyone have any idea what the last ones are? French ceramic tiles with food related script.
or What they might be used for?

What are your favorite unexpected collections?


  1. seems like based on the tile showing that they are aphorisms, e.g. "Don't wait until you are thirsty before you draw water from the well."

  2. Thanks! Any idea what they are used for or just decorative?
