What do you colllect?

I collect many things and one of them is these painted baskets.
I have them all over the house and these 3 are my favorites.

so whats one of your favorite things to collect?


  1. Very lovely baskets.
    I collect, porslin, children's books, bags and more stuff.
    Have a nice day

  2. in my humble opinion... those lovely baskets gather dust... and i'm a lazy so and so...
    much rather have a chocolate from your box! ;)))
    yeah, funny movie.

  3. Things. Paper art stuff. What it really boils down to, though, the most treasured things are the things given to me by my girls and my dear friends (like you!)

  4. P. S. Those baskets are wonderful. I don't think I've seen any like that around here.

  5. Hej Heidi

    I didn't quite jump in the dumpster ;-) ALMOST lol!

    These baskets are lovely, so unusual I have never seen wicker baskets this something particular to Alaska?

    I love enamelware and TINS! I have quite a collection...oh and anything RED, in particular clogs and bags HEHEHE!

    Have a great weekend Heidi
    I have been out all day today, tomorrow Vets with the d...og but lots of lovely things to photograph tomorrow, especially my lovely package from I can put up a post and share with everyone :D

  6. Hi Heidi,

    I have just been ooohing and aaahing over the photo's you took during the weekend. That view you have is amazing. While I sit in my appartment in town you have all that space and those mountains around you. It really is amazing!

    Like you I collect baskets as well, but I also collect china. Especially romantic china with flowers or polka dots.

    Enjoy your evening! The days are getting longer in Holland at last.

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  7. Those baskets are sweet - don't think I've ever seen them before. Are they gypsy baskets - like painted tinware? I used to collect honey pots, but now I'm selling them on :)

  9. Meant to comment re your beautiful photos from yesterday`s post...but I got confused!
    I collect a lot of grief, particularly when my Mother comes to call - I`m suffering from it now.
    Love those baskets. x

  10. Hi Heidi,

    Just read your comment. I am glad Julie received her parcel! I am sure mine will arrive soon too!!! Please don't send anything else.

    Veel lieve groetjes, Madelief

  11. The baskets are really pretty, I can see why you like collecting them.
    I seem to collect lots of pieces of furniture that I insist I will paint and do up, although a lot of it is cluttering up my poor garage... Em x

  12. I really like your baskets. You could say i collect anything vintage from the 50's and 60's well anything that talks to me and says please take me home you know you want to. But if i think about it its 50's drinking glasses, 50's frosted glass wear and vintage evening bags ;-)) dee x

  13. Hello,

    I´m from germany and collect many things too. I have never seen baskets like this, they are really adorable.
    Because I love old things, I collect old porcelain and porcelain cake spoons with floral decor, old metal tins with floral decor, old enamelware, books, brooches from the fifties, pastel-coloured MES from the fifties and some pretty things more. I think that beautiful collections make a home warm and cozy.

    much greetings from germany,

  14. Those painted baskets are great, I have never come across any like that.
    I collect vintage sheets and pillow cases but have had a bit of trouble finding any good ones lately...Oh egg cups too and so many more things.

  15. Oooh sweet little thimgs, Heidi! Well done sanding your floors.

    Have a nice day!


  16. HEJ HEIDI!

    Yep I would have dived in head first the clock LOL X

  17. Lovely baskets, Heidi! Beautiful collection ;o)
    When I was a little girl I collected pencils, after that I collected moose (but the most people here don't know the different between a moose and a I stop the collection because I got to much reindeers *smile*)..
    Now I collect...napkins ;o)
    Have a nice day!

  18. Oh don't get me started on baskets, i collect Babushka dolls, they can be contained in small places. Great basket collection, the biggest & most amazing one i have is a huge (like 4' diametre) old Navy basket i picked up for $5 at Revolve, ahhhh, love Posie

  19. I was just researching collections the other day! I love them when they are decorated well. Vintage cameras, antique postcards, and skeleton keys were among my fav!

  20. I seem to collect anything and everything although I'm trying to calm that down at the moment with my big decluttering session!!!
