Here are just a few things I've collected over the years: sea glass, Russian nesting dolls, vintage suitcases. I've stopped adding to most collections, but one thing I will always collect are vintage beaded bags. I look for them in far-flung antique shops and New York City flea markets. I love the way Carolina Irving displays her necklaces in the first issue of Lonny, and I would love to hang some of my bags on the wall the same way- just some simple nails and a great vintage wallpaper backdrop. (I would also love to have a bag like this-more than worthy of hanging on the wall!)
