Does anyone else collect a particular thing and feel quite obsessive about it?
My collection kind of possesses my mind and is really bad for my bank balance, but also brings me massive joy.
Yes, anything made of wood! Over the years I've 'modified' my obsession for collecting wooden things to only buying or bringing home those that I can justify to the family by claiming they're useful (pssst, it's not always strictly true). I even bought my children wooden toys, claiming they were more sturdy / robust / natural / authentic etc. and whilst that's all true, it's not the ONLY reasons I bought them.
Things wooden in my home include (but are not limited to):
lamps / light shades & picture / photo / mirror frames
ornaments (this is where the line between useful and not blurs)
pens and rulers etc.
children's toys and games
