I've recently started a couple of collections due to some neat gifts I received for Christmas.
The first is small honey jars. I purchased the first one (the beehive) on my birthday and my sister, Juliann, gave me the other one for Christmas. I know 2 doesn't really qualify as a collection, but I intend to accumulate more over time.
The second collection is blue mason jars. I found my first one in our friend's store in August and intended to start a collection, but hadn't come across any until Christmas day. I guess Grandma Brown heard about my desire to collect them and so she gave Jake and I three in a basket filled with goodies!
I've never really been a person to collect things (except for the awesome rock collection I had when I was little). And I don't intend to go completely overboard with either one since I don't have a lot of space to put them, but I think both will be fun to have. And I think one of my friends should plan their wedding around blue mason jars. I would gladly lend them out. I've read that you shouldn't put candles in them, but they would be great as vases. I would also gladly plan the entire wedding. Any takers?
