Most housewives will find that homemaking is both a blessing and a burden. You get to organize your home in a way that everyone has what they need, they are comfortable, and they are happy.
While that can be very rewarding, there comes a time when you can start feeling like your “home” is your personality, and that personality is just too dry! Collecting figurines is a fun way to spruce up your home decor while simultaneously putting some of your own personality back into the home.
1: Consider What You Want To Express
First, you’ll have to choose what theme you want to start a collection around. What is it that you love and wish you had more of in your home?
Are you an avid reader? Then consider collecting books by your favorite author. Are you a festive person that loves decorating for holidays? Start collecting house flags for every holiday year round. Are you dreaming of the perfect farmhouse with chickens running around the yard? Start with collecting unique chicken and rooster figurines to adorn the top of your kitchen cabinets.
No matter what it is you love, you can find the right collection for you.
2: Search Different Figurine Collections
Now that you know the general “what” you want to collect, it’s time to search for some specific collectibles that may bring your home back to life.
Let’s say you love Disney and want to find a mature way to make the magic part of your life again. Any of the collectible figurines from a collection such as The World of Miss Mindy Presents Disney would be a great way to do this.
These resin folk art pieces are hand painted. While they hold onto the fun and color of Disney, they act as an art piece as well as a collectible, so you can feel good about displaying them.
3: Make Your First Purchase & Display
Every collection of figurines starts with one figure, so start with that. Find a piece you can afford but also want to own, and purchase it!
Once it arrives, be sure to find a great display spot in your home. After all, part of the reason for starting your collection is to ensure that your personal passions remain an integral part of your home’s decor.
You’ll quickly find that you want to expand your collection, and you can make it larger over time.
4: Care for Your Collection
The next important step is to care for your collectible figurines! While sturdy and durable, figurines can still be damaged.
You should take time to clean them off monthly, and make sure that they are kept out of the way from dangers such as playing kids or direct sunlight that could cause them to be damaged.
Remember that your collection is a monetary investment, so you should invest time and love in protecting the collection as well.
