Here are some things that I already collect.
ViewMaster reels & viewers, especially vintage ones.
Records, especially soundtracks, especially Disney soundtracks. And a good amount of Motown.
Typewriters. Ok, ok. I only have one for now. But that's because I only have room for one.
Old books, with lots of illustrations, to use on collages. Oh, and especially old dictionaries.
Tank tops. I need to get enough to animate the color changing.
Nesting dolls. This is still a relatively new collection.
Keys. My dad has this great coffee can full of keys (that I totally borrowed for my animation).
Tea cups. Pretty ones.
Patches. As in scout and military. Especially vintage ones.
And here are some things I wish I could collect.
Vintage birds that remind me a little bit of the robin in Mary Poppins.
Pez dispensers. Not really, but this photo makes me wish I did.
The thing is, most of these are things I want to animate. I see endless stop motion possibilities. Especially in older items. Maybe it's because I see more character in them. Nicholas calls my collections junk (except for my immaculate copy of Morrison Hotel). I guess I just have to make some animations to change his mind.
Back to editing my life away. Hope your spring week is lovely.
