This cabinet needs help

My home looks more and more like a store every day.  When will it stop?  This cabinet is overflowing.  I attempt to keep my things contained, but it is getting harder all the time.  I've been working on a "rotation" where I move things around, store some things, bring them out again.  I think that is the first sign of hoarding.    Oh, dear.

A skull, you asked?  He remained after all the Halloween was put away one year and I liked him there year around.  So he stayed.  (He's not the weirdest thing in there, BTW)




This is a little German coin purse.

Speaking of the unnecessary, I have a Label "vintage" on my vintage blog.  Geez.

A hoarder doesn't know what she has, but a collector does. So I'd say you're a collector! And you have some great stuff, too. We have some of the same cameras!

Thank you, Suzanne. I hope you are right. I bought another camera today. Maybe I'll post today's purchases soon.

Yes, the skull is a bit strange, but I always say decorate with what you love. Came over from Cozy Little House welcome wagon.

I'll take that Brownie camera off your hands, you know... so you won't be considered a hoarder. LOL It just brings back so many memories of my grandmother.
