Collector by NATURE



I am a collector of things.....natural and otherwise. The FLORA and FAUNA of life! The interesting bits and pieces that are mostly overlooked and unwanted. The good JUNK! The stuff others don't see...a rescuer on all levels. 
Hoarder of beauty! 
Naturalist. 
JUNKER!
Hunting, gathering, cherishing.





My rescued collection of DOGS (three) are my co-pilots in all my wild endeavors! They are my HEART and SOUL...they get me....they don't question me! 
They trust me, and I them. 
They need me, and I need them. 
We are a pack.

There is no taming my feral soul that needs to run WILD & FREE! 
No fences...no boundaries...no limits...
Operating on instinct and BIG love for open spaces and all its inhabitants. 
MOTHER EARTH...FATHER SKY
Beautiful, vast, glorious!
INSPIRING!!!

Keeper of beautiful objects....natural and man made....




My best thinking comes when I am in this element...
Peaceful, quiet...contemplative.
NATURE...wild...free.

My minds shelter from the storms of life...soothed and clear. Gathering organic bits to stick in my pocket and day pack to carry home so I may stay connected to this place....my place of nirvana. Collecting bits of earth, pieces of decay as mementos for my soul. Just as I do in my JUNKY life....old relics of time rescued by me to live with or pass on to another to hold dear. 
The common thread being I am who I am.......you who you are....you are either a collector of life things or you are not. There are so many levels to collecting, most people are, whether it be stories, sentimentals, JUNK, tchotchkes, animals, vintage camp trailers...people...places...things! The things we choose to have displayed in our life, shaping our environments and showcasing who we are....what we hold important!


Natural flora and fauna, 
DOGS! 
BOOKS!
 JUNK!
SHOES!
Vintage trailers, and stuff for them. 
Artisan jewelry.
Heart rocks, sticks and stones.
Shells.
Horseshoes.
Bones.
Leaves.
Wild foliage.
BOOTS!
TEAS!
Family photos.
Experiences.
Candles.
ANYTHING that peaks my interest or desire in the moment.
Collector in life!

Talk to ME! 
What do you LOVE to collect now or always? 
Did you have a collection or collections handed down to you from generations past? 
What would you like to collect in multiples? 
Does nature make an impact on you?

The Tail END....

Always, 
B HAPPY
B true...
B authentic
B YOU!

Beloved Muse

Awwww the SWEET ASS!










How can I count the ways I LOVE them???

This FINE equine makes my heart mushy and twitterpated. I admire the often compact, woolly lil' beasties!

As a child I was exposed to many as my dad often kept 3 or 4 around for the back country pack trips we indulged in on a regular basis. I find myself so attracted to their super ADORABLE-NESS and relate my own personality traits to their nature....sweet, STUBBORN, gentle, WILD, compliant, DEFIANT! Loyal, HARDY and happy! Very CURIOUS, playful, dependable....not easily SWAYED once their mind is made up! HARD WORKING little buggers! Hence, I see my characteristics align closely with the almighty donkey DONK!

The SWEET ASS collection I created for Lipstick Gypsy some time ago was completely inspired by the Darling Donkey! As fate would have it our acreage is surrounded with quite literally HUNDREDS of these precious beings, as our neighbor is a DONKEY rancher!  In true GYPSY form I am currently wheelin' & dealin' to acquired 2 of the "next door donkeys" along with a couple Pygmy goats to add to our menagerie. :-) LIFE is GOOD! 

Truly, the "next door donkeys" may as well be mine as I treat them as such! During outdoor chores they follow along and watch while they beg for attention. Daily I come face to face with their glorious velvet muzzles. Blissful beings they are!

Has an animal or GROUP of animals ever had a deep affect on you? Please Share! I have missed you and want to hear from you!
