The start of something good: Or how I convinced my husband that another collection was really okay

Remember when I posted in November about finding two beautiful Japanese mugs for free?

I found another set in a vivid green with blue detailing at the same thrift store just a few weeks ago. Then, this past Saturday, I stumbled on an unmatched green pair at another store.

This means I've started another collection (yeah, me!). It also means my husband rolled his eyes when I told him about it.

To convince him this Japanese mug collection could be a good thing, I suggested we ditch all the regular coffee cups we use (You know those freebies you get from everywhere with so-and-so's logo on them? Those ones.) He said, "You know, that's a great idea. Then we will actually use something you've collected for a change."

Yeah for acceptance, and yeah, again, for useful collections!

What have you started collecting, lately?

French Communion Rings

French First Communion rings.
Of course they are so small they barely fit on my little finger.
But that didn't matter!
I bought them anyway!
Don't we usually buy what we love regardless if we need it or not?
