That collector gene

My Aunt Mary lives in Texas. She's my favorite aunt.

She loves to collect things. This particular collection is the small stuffed toys collection.

It drove Heather crazy to see that collector gene uninhibited. Why? I have that same gene. She doesn't.

Heather rightly claims that if I fully gave into my collector gene, we'd have to get a bigger house. (Can't afford it. Don't want one, either.)

So since that visit, I have made a pledge to go through some of my collections and kill them off. SOME of the collections.

Hilarious! Good luck with the down-sizing! :-)

Okay, nothing against your aunt but that would all go into the nearest trash bag and down to goodwill. I am not a collector. The older I get, the more dust I've dusted, turns me into a minimalist. Stuff is just another chink in my day of obligatory dusting.

Oh dear. One thing I cannot stand is lots of stuffed little creatures overflowing like that. I just have to go into my girl's room to see it. AAGGGHHHHH!
I am a declutter, not a hoarder.
