collecting is an art

Artist Lisa Congdon has a neat little project that I’ve been keeping my eye for a while…well, since the beginning of the new year. I’m not sure why I never thought to share it with you before now, but I’m sharing it now.

Lisa is a collector, has been since she was a little girl, and she has decided to share her collections with the world…one day at a time for her A Collection a Day, 2010 Project. Every day, from January 1st until December 31st, Lisa plans to photograph or draw a collection (or part of a collection), from all the different types of goods she has amassed over the years, and post it on the blog . I am completely smitten with this project and can’t wait to see what she will be sharing next.

Here are a few recent faves.
