What have I chosen to collect? Ampersands. I started an ampersand Pinterest board & was inspired to collect them for my home after I saw this quote: "Ampersand: Resembling a broken infinity, the ampersand reminds us that nothing truly lasts forever but there s always an AND."
My first ampersand was made by a dear friend for my bridal shower. I am purposeful in my ampersand purchases. I won't cherish an ampersand if I bought it at Target! Instead, I choose handmade items. That way it's more special, and there's always a story to tell about its origins.
Take a look at one of these gorgeous ampersand finds, and start your own collection!
