What is a Collection?

A lot of people collect, but does that make a collection?


A collection is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as an accumulation of objects gathered for study, comparison, or exhibition or as a hobby.

I don’t collect much, but when I do I display what I have so I can enjoy and show the items off. I think that if you are not proud enough to show-off your items then they aren’t a collection. Their just stuff.

Recently, I asked my handy-husband to create a frame so I could highlight a small collection of glass hens that I had collected. Here’s the finished product.

I love it because it shows off all the beautiful colors of glass and that make each one of the hens unique. I decided to hang my collection on a wall with objects made of different textures. I think it make each item more interesting.

Do you collect? Are you honoring the items and your collecting efforts by displaying your collections. If not, work to do this. Clear off the top of an end table or a shelf, gather items of the same type and arrange them in a pleasing display. Now you and others can enjoy your collection.
