Collections

Larry and I are both obsessed with our collections. He collects, records, books, auto parts, printed ephemera, guitars and more. I collect yarn, costume jewelry, Vera scarves, mid-century modern pottery, eyeglass frames, handbags, vintage knitting and crochet magazines and more yarn. When I saw that the L.A. Central Library was having an exhibit called "21 Collections: Every Object Has a Story," I was fascinated!

Here are the titles of various collections:
Paper Airplanes

This exhibit is in the large Getty exhibit room on the second floor. It's always wonderful visiting the Downtown Public Library. In fact, I'm reading Susan Orlean's "The Library Book" right now! It's a beautiful building, chock full of incredible books and collections.
This exhibit continues through January 27th. Next time you're downtown, be sure to catch it. Who knows? You may already have the makings of a collection at your house worthy of public display!
