Collecting Out of Control
When is a collection out of control? I started collecting watermelon glassware back in the 80s. Then I went to a Wangs store in Memphis (they are no longer there) and I spotted a few fruit and vegetable pitchers and teapots. I snapped! I had to collect every fruit and vegetable known to man in glassware. Then as if that wasn't enough...Now it has taken over my window in the form of painted fruit pictures on glass. Then there is the cabinet over the sink.. and then there is the shelf above the kitchen sliding glass door. It's the Twinkie that ate Texas. The worst part is...I CAN'T HELP MYSELF! I will be walking through a mall or some store and see a pitcher or a tea pot and have to have it. Will this obsession ever go away before I run out of wall space and shelves? Is anyone else out there as smitten with eating food and then collecting it as I am?
