Confession of a Prospective Hoarder

My name is Janice, and I am a collectaholic. As if I didn't have enough collections already happening in my life, I have begun yet another: Schilling spice tins. I recently passed the word as my birthday approached, and I was lucky enough to get an impressive start on this lastest passion. How they perk up my tired kitchen!


  1. I love the bright red tins. What a fun collection!
    Also, love the photo of (is that Cleo?) in her costume, on your side bar : )

  2. Never heard of them but the look kind of nifty. Mind you I have spices in my pantry that I don't think I've used for years. Must get to that. Happy birthday if I haven't missed it

  3. I have a lot of "collections" too: owls, tin toys, little chairs, serving dishes, boxes of food coloring... Oh, wait, they're not really a collection. They're the result of buying a new box every year because I can never remember if I have any.

  4. If your obsession gets out of hand, just let me know! My ex collected (hoarded) George Foreman sandwich grills. I hated them so much I'd bury a few in the bottom of a bag of kitchen trash and then stick that in the bottom of the garbage can figuring he wouldn't look there. Eventually they were all gone. Him as well...


Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
