Compulsion






For people who are artists and artsy creators, antique shop owners, vintage hunters, there is one common thread...We want IT! IT is just a little something that catches our eye and no matter how much stuff we already have, we have to have something more~even if it is exactly what we already have at home. We can't help it, it is an addiction and except for space allowance and bumped toes in the night, it is a relatively safe addiction...I have never heard tell of any one dying from this affliction! There are hoarders and there are "got to have its". We are not the H word! Hoarders have massive amounts of worthless junk. We just have slightly smaller than masses of wonderful treasures. *note to offspring~ There is a big difference.~
