ABC WEDNESDAY--"K" is for "knick-knack"

It's times like this when I am happy I do not collect things anymore. I think the older we get, the more we downsize. I used to collect teapots in odd shapes, and still have a few, but it's downsize, downsize for me now.

But these knick-knacks are cute....

How about you? Do you collect something?

See more J's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

Am trying not to collect stuff now while in the US for several months.

I think the knick-knacks probably look different in Belgrade, non? I watched an interesting travel program about Serbia on TV this week!

They look cute, but...I mostly just collect dust.

Klever (and yes, Kitchy) K, BibKins.
I'm with you on downsizing. I went thru a period a few years ago of collecting ceraminc pitchers... Still have lots of knick-knacks, that I slowly part with. Now instead of buying, I'm happy to take photos.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Dust. That's what seems to collect in my house because of all the books and knickknacks. :-)

I recognize a few of those.

I collect sterling silver jewelry, not to big and bulky, can enjoy wearing it and call it "my retirement."

I had a mug collection .. didnt buy a single one, someone who traveled brought them back for me ... I do collect all things 'heart' ... what a fabulous collection of dust catchers ... is it in a store or does it belong to someone?

these are really sweet though I know exactly what you mean. I try not to collect anything except maybe flowers that can be planted outside.
& Just in case you're interested Bibi, do enter my giveaway, a Peter Lik book, he's an Australian photographer. It ends tonight at midnight.
You can enter by going to my sidebar on my blog & clicking on the beach scene at the top & leaving a comment on Saturday's post.
Hope you & yours are well.

Wonderful choice for K! I'm mostly trying to downsize at this point—but still collect Eiffel Towers (was just given one that lights up!).

I'm as happy as a pig in mud visiting antique, junk, and thrift shops. But I try to resist buy small things these days. too many end up being stored in boxes.

Yes, Bibi, good choice for "K"...
«Louis» collects model cars - but limits the collection to Packards and Studebakers.

I did a Thursday 13 on things I collect. Great pic. Makes me want to touch that piggy.
