How Collections Start

Thank you for accompanying me on another trip along the forgotten byways of kitsch ornamentation and curious home decor. As we meander down this less-travelled road, we find that the unexpected often turns into the familiar.

Just a few short years ago, I had never seen a plate with a furry 3-D animal in it, mounted behind convex glass. When I found the kitty plate above, I have to admit, I hesitated. Was it good kitsch or just bad weirdness? You see, dear reader, even I sometimes find it hard to tell. And there just isn't room for everything.

I bought it, more for its novelty value than for its beauty. (What do you mean, you thought that was why I bought all my stuff??) Anyhow, it must have grown on me, because when I found Mr Bunny, I didn't hesitate at all...
