Love how author Sibilla Court describes herself as being less of a hoarder and more as a collector and curator of things. In fact she goes further and likens herself to a bowerbird. Perfect.
Bowerbirds (well the male to be precise) love to create an elaborate structure, a bower, which they decorate with colourful objects they find.... from snail shells and berries to bottle caps and flowers. Attracting another mate is not my intention! but this has to be the best description for a lover of things unusual and beautiful. Doesn't Sally Elfords screen print act as a beautiful image to focus on?

The book has so many great ideas, I recommend you hot foot it to Anthro or Amazon and secure your own copy of ETCETERA.
