Optimistically I call these things "stock in hand" and kid myself that I'm just waiting until the time is right. Right for what, I haven't quite decided.
I adore pictures, and use the excuse that taking them from the wall would show crumbling plaster and a slection of nail holes where they weren't positioned correctly at first (or second...) try, so it makes more sense to keep them in situ.
I don't think I fool anyone.
There are some softly coloured silks such as this flapper girl
Collages made from postage stamps, watercolour paints and antique textiles
I love collections of similar things all grouped together
