When Bree and I were at the Gardner Museum, we went into their public space to catch a breath. We walked through a big open door and into a space that looked as if it were decorated by Don Draper's whimsical sister. There was a little yellow bird singing in a white victorian wired cage, sleek red modern couches, and a lovely woman there to greet us. Her name was Janet and she said "Welcome to the Living Room!"
She explained that "The Living Room" is a public space, and every afternoon they have a volunteer come in to "host" the space, and share a little part of their life. Janet was an amazing hostess. She brought in her collection of small chairs. Never have I ever been jealous of a collection of small chairs until today.
Aren't they just the cutest!? She also brought in some mini dressers and armoires that contained black squares of paper with gold script words. She asked that we take a word that inspires us, and leave a word to inspire someone else (fun right?).
Janet's collection got me thinking, what do we find that is worth collecting? What does collecting mean to us as people?
She asked me what I collected. "Red lipstick, and I suppose... tea cups."
What do you collect? Comment below!
