"I go through phases of collecting certain objects. The two categories I cannot walk away from are small dog figurines of boxers or pit bulls," says Susan. "Natural curiosities are a long term obsession. The Victorians had a great knack for exploring and documenting our natural world, so I get really excited if I find a great item I can add to my collection. I’d eventually like to line the hallways with case goods and display my collections. William has a thing for vintage butcher knives—he loves the craftsmanship and patina."
