Hello…. my name is Jennifer…..and I am addicted to COLLECTING!

DSCN4291_edited-1 

Welcome sweet friends! I have a MAJOR confession! I am an addict!!!! My addiction is collecting. I collect all SORTS of things!!! Vintage jewelry, figurines of all sorts, hats, dresses, china, anything that OVER THE TOP CUTESY! Take for instance this darling beaded poodle dog. Have you ever seen anything like it before? I haven't. It instantly became an "aawwwww that's soo cute I must have!!!" My obsession is starting to overtake my house. I have NO room for all these pretty and fun objects. The figurines especially. I dont mind "some" clutter, but Im now noticing things are taking over. LOL!!!!

Here are a few fun "eye candy" pieces of things that I've added to my collection recently.

I am a huge fan of Debrina Pratt's work. Soooo fun and whimsical. I adore her pieces. 

DSCN4290_edited-1 DSCN4284_edited-1  How stinking CUTE is this vintage baby planter??? Must have! I will perhaps try and use this piece for a future creation. Even my wonderful friends support my habit. 😉 Miss Natasha pointed this one out to me. "Look Jenn…this is SO YOU!!!!" LOL!!!!

"Hook and Bait!!!" I bought it!!! 😉

I know MOST all of us looooove gorgeous vintage bling. I KNOW Im not the only collector when it comes to vintage jewelry. I just added this piece to my collection. Gorgeous! Im thinking this is a MUST wear at SILVER BELLA!!!  

 DSCN4305_edited-1  Sometime in the near future I will have to start parting with some of my overgrowing collection, and only save my most favorite and special pieces. I'll make sure a little biride will tell ya when Im ready to sell and "declutter". 😉

I have a few photos I would like to share of some wonderful projects that I've been working on for Sweet Six Studio Online art retreat. I am amazed at the amount of talent that is within my group. I have enjoyed these ladies so much and it's been a BLAST doing this together. It's strengthen our friendships and Im *delighted* and overjoyed to actually meet all these lovely ladies in just over a months time at Silver Bella. 

This little ole birdcage is a decorative project I created for Sweet Six Studio.

Today, I am teaching how to create beautiful and easy to make decorative candle jars. So sweet and pretty! I love the soft glow thru the lace!

Hi Jenn,
The poodle dog is so adorable. I never saw

Great post, thanks for sharing your collections.
Have a great weekend,
Andrea

The candle holders are so freaking cute! They are just awesome! Love the blog! It makes me very happy to read it!

We should start a support group, like AA, we could have the 12 steps, the first being acknowledgment of the addiction . . . Rachaelxo

You’re not alone in your addiction! I really enjoy visiting your adorable blog… must say that the Pink Poodle is simply precious! I have a teenie collection of them, but not one like that! Just love her Cuteness! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to many return visits. Please know that you’re welcome at my lil blog home anytime… I’m in the middle of a series of Vintage Eye Candy posts featuring Vintage Halloween post cards… Thanks, again, and I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful weekend…

Hi Jenn!
Just wanted to drop in and tell you how much I enjoy your blog. That is the cutest poodle I’ve ever seen! I completely understand your addiction, my house is so full but I just keep on hauling more stuff home.
Have a nice weekend!

OMG!!! That PoOdLe! I love and want it~ LOL
I was hoping to attend Silver Bella next year….but I really want a Vintage trailer so that is first on my MUST HAVES.
Pretty things to see today~Thanks

Jen, I went to an auction last week and it was just embarrassing how much I went home with… all beautiful things, all good prices, nonetheless… I couldn’t believe it.. A week later, I look at the stuff and feel completely fine… no remorse whatsoever and I am looking for estate sales to visit tomorrow… it is a sickness!

OK, my friend, how come you did not tell me you bought that “stinking” GORGEOUS rhinestone and pearl necklace. You will have to share that with me!
I’m so sorry to hear about your addiction…If I can figure out a cure, I will let you know. In the meantime I will see you at our next “meeting.”
PS
Love the black lace candle idea! Wicked.

Oh Jenn!! I really, really love those votives with the lace!! Pretty!! You girls are so stinkin’ clever!
Wow!
I also have begun quite the froufrou collection–my husband hasn’t said anything about it yet–think he’ll notice??
😀
~Sadie

That cage is very cute. It was pretty fun to look at the cards and realize I designed most of them 😉 What a fun inspiration piece!

When you decide to have your declutter sale please be sure to tell me a different date so I don’t go hoarding yours or anyone elses stuff! I am an addict too LOL! Fun projects, can’t wait to see everyones takes. LOADS of talent with everyone it is so special to see! Finally have my designs etc in place for my new blog. I just linked you :)
xoxo

You’re so funny!!!!
Great stuff to collect!

Oooo what a good idea for old Jelly jars and such! I might have to try my hand at it! Next time there is a sorta Sweet Six event Ill have to sign up! && You know I love that birdage!!! Anything Candy-like grabs my attention for sure! Ill surely be here when you declutter LOL!!!! Love the necklace its soo gorgeous!
TAKE CARE JENN!!!!

Jane

Where to begin? It’s all so beautiful! Love the cute poodle, the sweet shop, the birdcage, and oh,my, those candles!! Such a clever idea!
Your blog is always such fun to visit.

Well Ms. Jenn, there certainly are worse things in the world to be addicted too. I think yours is Beautiful. Loving that Rhinestone Necklace, Gorgeous…

Just love your new additions! So addicting. I’ve been adding to my collection but too lazy to take pictures and post.
I must do your online retreat if you offer it again. I just had too much to do with halloween around the corner. Your candle vases are just wonderful. I love the glow through the lace. The baby one is precious too!
best wishes,
Jaime

Jenn, your blog is so much fun to visit. I love the lace jars and I have a zillion yards of lace every size and color from my moms with ribbon to match.
Now real serious question—is that really candy on the birdcage or beads that resemble the candy necklaces? I also love the lollipop shop—great artists. Hugs, Pat

Those candle holders are sweet and so simple too~ I finally got some jelly jars cleaned out so I can make a few for evening dinners on the patio .

Oh, I’m so glad there is someone else out there like me! It’s so easy to start a new collection.

Beautiful candle holder, love the pretty lace. I just sold a huge collection of bone china posies, gosh I want them back! I loved collecting them,I’v already stared searching for more! Collecting is addictive I know!! Hugs, Kimberly

Lovely blog to scroll through…lovely pics,
Susannah x

Hi Jennifer…your things are just so out of this world cute!!! (or as you would say…so stinking cute!)lol!! The pink poodle is adorable. I just looking at your blog to see what else you come up with, girlfriend!!
Thanks,
Sherry

I love the candles so pretty and a great idea. Don’t stop collecting, there willbe no pretty pics to look at.

Jenn,
I love your blog, and always enjoy dropping in to see what you’ve been up to.
All of your collections are great, but especially love that pink poodle!!

super cute poodle Jenn! How can you not be a fan of Debrina Pratt…her creations are absolutely adorable and quite original.
I’ll be waiting for the little birdie (~~)Julie

I am huge collector too! Probably (no definitely…) of way too much! Love your cute finds…and Debrina Pratt’s art is so beautiful and whimsical…when I used to sell on ebay a couple of years back, I always enjoyed seeing her listings…she is quite amazing. Love this one with the little cat!

Hi Jenn!! I adore the over-top-cute birdcage and beautiful and sweet candle holders youi created!!! Everything you create is so fun and pretty and happy!! I adore the Debrina Pratt piece you have- I LOVE her work and I LOVE yours, too!!
Michelle xoxo

The poodle is to cute for words, and I LOVE the bird cage. Do you make the bunny boxes? And if so do you sell them? I have 5 pet bunnies and your boxes are adorable.
Kathy

That birdcage is adorable! (of course)

Ahhh… PINK and POODLE.. .a perfect combo! A super fun post with lots of pretty things… I feel your “pain” over the collecting and running out of room. Just today I had to make room for so many new things from the last few classes I’ve taken, shopping and bringing home too much and not moving anything out. When does it end? Never, I guess!
Take care,
Holly

Hi Jenn thought I would peep over to see what you’ve been up too pretty!

One good thing, at least collecting is a healthier addiction then some! I’m addicted too so I can totally relate. I say life it too short & we should follow our passions! I’m so sorry I missed Sweet Six Retreat, I signed up but already started another course and had an unexpected business trip but I’ll definitely make some of the projects this winter when my life slows down a bit. They were all so gorgeous! But really missed doing it with everyone. Look forward to seeing more of your addictions, I mean collections & lovely creations! God bless, Laura

Have you seen your photo on the Country Living site yet? There is a link through the Silver Bella posts. You look great! What a perfect picture to advertise the Junk Gypsy night!

Hi Jenn,
Instead of worrying about decluttering ~ just pack it all up and mail all those amazing treasures and bling to me!
Love that gorgeous rhinestone necklace! OMG!!! Definitely need to be sporting that at Silver Bella. Say hello to “Mary Englebreit” for me sweet pea!
