Instant Collections and the Order of the Universe

Etsy Treasury curated by RememberMeEmily
collection [kəˈlɛkʃən]
1. the act or process of collecting
2. a number of things collected or assembled together

I collect objects because collecting/arranging/looking at them brings me JOY. It reminds me of the "order of the universe".....a universe that has an orderly, harmonious pattern and rhythm.....where everything is placed exactly as it should be.
