I had to build this shelf to house my collection. I was all giddy bringing everything out of the boxes. Look at all the pretty colors!
I’ve been collecting dice since I was about 17. My first electric tattoo was of a pair dice (it’s covered up now but that’s another story). Many people ask me why dice? Franky, I’m not 100% sure why. I’m not a gambler. I got into bakelite much later, but I love how the plastic looks like candy or the other way around. Small, square, lucky. The fact that you also see images of luck in tattoos and associated with rock n roll (rock a billy). It’s pretty possitive I think to be attracted to good luck charms. So maybe that’s it!
Plus I feel like a pretty lucky girl.
That’s an amazing collection. I love the lamps.
My first thought was – WOW! What a fabulous collection! My second – who does the dusting!?!
Collecting brings me so much joy, that I’m not afraid of dusting! The only problem is when the living space starts to get crowded. However I’ve done so many purges in my life and I keep distilling my tastes and style.
