I do, however, collect any and all yellow-bound books.
Mostly, these are yardsale and thrift-store finds. (I try never to spend more than a dollar on a "decorative" book.) My mother-in-law, and a few really fun friends, have also given me several books. And, some are "antiques" I found in my grandparents' basement etc. - i.e. my poor Poppy's National Geographic collection that I played "school" with when I was little and wrote ALL over. They are little treasures to me.
Yes, when I visit your house, I probably am scouring your bookshelves to see what I might - one day - be able to add to my collection. Donations are graciously accepted.
Oh... And for the record, I also started a collection of YELLOW FUR about two years ago. It is a very successful collection, tripling approximately every two hours. I just can't seem to slow it down... Thank goodness I love it even more than yellow books. ;)
Edited to Add: Once you've checked out all of Kelly's links, head over to The Shabby Nest to see her readers' Frugal Decorating Finds. :) I decided this post fit into BOTH categories! Enjoy!
