I have a problem.

A teensy, tiny, itty-bitty problem.

I’m obsessed with glasses. Glasses and vases. Lovely, thrifted, vintage glasses and vases.

It’s a little frightening to tell you the truth. Once I find myself in a thrift store, it happens. Like, out of nowhere. My eyes glaze over, I foam at the mouth, and I become…the huntress.

Oh, I look like the female version of Jacob in Twilight!

That’s hot right?

Don’t answer that.

And this picture? This is only a dinky glimpse of my collection.

Help me.

What are your obsessions? Are you an avid thrifter? Do visions of antiques and colorful, vintage glassware keep you up at night? Or are you more of a Justin Bieber video collector? SPILL IT. And furthermore, are there support groups for people like us?

    You are awesome, Bev! We are kindred spirits. I thought I was the only one with this obsession. It doesn't help that there is a thrift store near my office in Overland Park that I can visit over my lunch hour...which I do ALOT! You know it's bad when the staff knows your name. But, I have many a treasure to show for it and my hubby thinks it's cute. I love your glass collection. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Bowls. And organizing things into spreadsheets. (Geek) I think glasses are pretty high up there on my list, too! I LOVE your collection, Jacob. :)

    Vintage cookbooks, especially the junior-league type, are my passion. I love your footed blue glasses!

    LOVE those glasses! I love me some cookbooks and magazines!! Just Love em! I really try to organize them, but there is a pile on the sofa for when I am watching t.v. and in my bedroom piled on the bed at night! :)

    Dishes... mounds and mounds of dishes. I like new ones and I LOVE vintage ones. It's a problem, for sure. Our local senior center hosts a 3 day yard sale every year... it happens to be this weekend. It takes me 3 hours just to walk through the thing! I find the best pieces there. I also love table linens. I rarely use them... but I have plenty... from modern to english countryside, just in case I throw a tea party. And vintage orange vases... we can blame my grandmother for getting me hooked on that one. I'm praying I do not end up on an episode of Hoarders for all the things I like to collect!

    What a gorgeous obsession to have! I'm in love with mugs...coffee mugs. Meeker threatens to throw them out all the time - our cabinets are overflowing with them. I may have to do a post on them soon - although, they aren't nearly as photogenic as your lovely glasses.

    No, although I love those, my weakness lands on old bottles, pitchers and bowls. Wait, salt and pepper shakers, teapots and platters. Wait, old kitchen utensils and baskets add to the heap. Crocks. Churns. Linens. Odd things. Old refrigerator storage bowls with matching lids. Ewwww, now that I've typed this it scares me!!

    Oh, I LOVE your collection!! I have a whole closet full of dishes. I blame it on the blog - a girl needs lots of props, right?? I'm also obsessed with cookbooks. I have so many that I haven't even opened some of them in a few years, but I still want to collect more!!

    Gorgeous glasses! My obsession is bags of candy. I know that's ridiculous, but if I see a new kind of candy I MUST have it..My pantry is like Willy Wonka. I wish I had class....errr glass ;)

    I just scored 11 gorgeous little egg cups! For 90 cents!!! I've been looking for egg cups for quite awhile. Who knew I'd find vintage ones for less than a buck?!?!? Ahhh. It's the little things in life. ;) (Pics coming soon on my blog.)

    I pretty much am obsessed with everything although it varies over time. Right now it's mismatched plates and vintage sheets and wooden heads and... well I could keep going! Love your glasses!! -Bridget

    HA! I have so many obsessions it's a little bit ridiculous. I'm a big fan of plates. I love that photo of all the cups/glasses!
