this book looks amazing!! flagrante collecto (caught in the act of collecting) by Marilynn Gelfman Karp, it's a book about the art of collecting unwanted objects.
i love collecting! it's actually a bit of a problem, i can't seem to pass up a good deal and i find that it's a very fine line between being a collector and a hoarder. heh heh. i'm quite keen on antique doll heads, creepy looking babies, vintage west german pottery, milk glass, mid-century design objects & furniture, antique books, i love all of it, if it's unusual, creepy or old, i'll buy it.
in fact, just last week i picked up a cat carrier from the 1950's and an antique birdcage & stand. they look like they're straight out of a sylvester and tweetie cartoon. and the week before? i bought a vintage mug made in japan with jiggling boobies, it looks quite nice as a mini planter. i planted a succulent of course. for lovers of ephemera, this book is available on amazon.
