After reading the lovely comments left on my last post I realised how lucky I am to live in a house with lots of mantlepieces. Like many other things in my life this is something that I have been taking for granted. I do love my mantlepieces and it's just as well I have them because I have copious amounts of little things that need a comfortable and safe resting place. This mantlepiece is in our spare bedroom which is also my little studio, it's at the top of our house and home to everything I bring into our house.
The majority of the things I collect are greeted by my boyfriend with the following phrase "What the hell is that?" or "Not more shit!?"
I hope that he doesn't actually think that these little things I treasure are worthless because they're important to me, even if I'm not entirely sure why.
I've always for as long as I can remember had little collections of things, I don't regard myself as a materialistic person at all, but I do like surrounding myself with stuff I like, these things comfort me in a way so I've decided to share them with you.

Hello Jessica & Caroline, thanks for your messages.
I'm trying to remember who makes the sausage dogs - I bought it from "Winter's Moon"
Caroline, the huge owl is a money bank bought for £2.50 from a carboot sale in north London.
