flashback! i'm a winner: a collection a day book

Why yes, I am a winner, thank you, but personality pluses aside, I really did win this book! I never really thought I'd be the winner of an blog giveaway, but that doesn't stop me from trying! Then one day there it was, an email from Victoria over at sfgirlbybay saying I'd won! Thank you Victoria!
And although I always fully want to win whatever it is that I leave a comment for or tweet, I really really really wanted to win this book, A Collection a Day by Lisa Congdon. Somewhere, I still have the link to where I could go to buy it on Uppercase, bookmarked, just waiting for the day when I could order it. But—YAY!—now I don't have too, 'cause I totally won it. I'm a winner *jazz hands*! Now where are those lottery numbers I've been meaning to play?!

Just as I expected, it's a super fun book! A collector myself, I really enjoy getting to take a glimpse into the collections of others and Lisa's are definitely impressive. I loved, too, how she painted or drew some of the collections so you get a bit of her fantastic art! Bonus score!

It all started when she began posting her collections on a blog, which you can view from her website A Collection a Day, the link is for the 2010 blog. She posted a new collection everyday for 365 days! This really resonated with people and before she knew it she was publishing a book! Below are some of my favorite pages... Enjoy!
I love the blue feathers! Are you a collector? What kinds of things do you collect?
