A collection sometimes starts as you are shopping. You find one item….let’s say a plate. Maybe you find 2. Now that plate is “on your radar” and you start to see it everywhere!
And before you now it…….you have a collection!
My collection of “Iowa” themed plates at our Okoboji House started with a couple of purchases. I searched Iowa on Ebay and found one about the Lake, so I bought them. Most were less than $5.
The idea to hang them on the wall came from a page torn from an old issue of Country Living Magazine. They hung just plates. Mine all have a theme of Iowa or Okoboji.
I have no duplicates and now am having a hard time finding new ones…..
Off to another collection!
