Not in a hoarder next door kind of way, but just in an appreciation for lovely trinkets, complete sets, or just random things in different phases of my life.  I can never come home from the beach without a pocket full of shells. more “Collecting Lamaze, collecting memories + Freddie Firefly #Giveaway with @LamazeOnline”
