Kelly's Korner wanted to know what everybody collects so I thought I would show you guys. I hate to admit this but my collection fills that bookcase to the bursting point. Thats right I have way more cookbooks than what is showing. I even have so many that they don't all fit on that bookshelf they are also in another one in my storage room...its an obsession. I mean honestly in this picture you can only see the top 3 shelves the bottom 2 shelves are empty....for now. I just can't help it I love to cook and love love love to try new recipes. There are 2 really good reasons why that thing is such a mess. My 1 year old decided all of the sudden he really pulling my cookbooks off the shelf. So he went through and pulled and pulled till he completely cleared out the bottom 2 shelfs. The I decided since he did that I need to organize them and purge some out anyways so I would take this as a sign it was time....that was Monday and my house is covered in cookbooks. They have been shuffled and moved so many times its going to take me forever to get them all back together and really organized. I refuse to just shove them all willy nilly back in that thing. In all honesty its driving me crazy that its not done yet. So this weekend will probably be my breaking point and I will get them all back in there....well the ones I am going to keep. I have gotten better about buying cookbooks. When I quit work in 2008 I made a commitment not to buy cookbooks because I had so many and because it cost so much. Well I did good I only bought 1 in 2009. I bought 1 the other day so I guess that was my one for 2010....good thing Mother's Day and my birthday are still coming up! It doesn't count if they are gifts..lol. I have also learned not to buy cookbooks just because of the great food in them. It doesn't matter how wonderful they are if they don't fit into my family's tastes and lifestyle. So there is collection. What do you collect?
