New Favorite word - Wunderkammer!! Cabinet of Curiosities. I came across an article about this mode of collecting from as early as the 16th century in a Vogue magazine, of all places. (Check out the above link from wikipedia.....) Needless-to-say this made me feel better about all my crazy collections of "curious items" that I have everywhere. There are people who don't understand and there are a lot of people who share my love of hunting & gathering & displaying!! It's always a pleasure to meet one of those kindred spirits. I never could live the new zen life style, although it looks so great in photos. Only problem is moving all this stuff. That's why they started museums i guess!!
