I almost shutter when I hear the word "collector". My mind flashes to scenes from Hoarders or memories of sitting at auction houses with my parents as a child, watching large collections of people's belongings being sold for chump change.

|Boys rock collection below Mike's Wilco collection. I don't know if John Lackey did this one or not but he's|
done many amazing Wilco posters over the years. Check out his site.
But as much as I think I buck the system, I must admit, I am a collector. Spring has arrived here in Kentucky and some of my favorite collections have made their annual appearance. White stoneware, artwork, mason jars, and garden pots are on a seasonal rotation at the Smith Homestead.
|these pots are awaiting their herbs...now to see if that will indeed happen before fall...|
And as each season passes, the plaid painted kitchen floors gain more scuffs, scratches and wear...which is exactly the point, right? Each scuff is a made memory in my book.

And how do you decorate for spring?
