Men may doubt what you say, but they will believe what you do.  -  Lewis Cass

I believe your home tells a story about who you are and who you aspire to be. We represent ourselves through the things we own. I don't believe in trends. I believe in collecting things that you connect with. We should surround ourselves with things we care about, that have meaning.

There's a lot in my closet. I've been collecting things since I was five. I'm definitely a pack rat. I'm not a hoarder, but I'm definitely a pack rat. I will keep anything if I have a memory in it or a good moment.

One of the brilliant things about Britain is the way you've managed to save old things but to keep using them - that they've not just become museums the way they do in the United States.

                                           - Bill Bryson

Monetary value is not a true measurement of great antiques. 

Such objects not only open the door

to yesterday, they help to shape tomorrow.
