What do bloggers collect? The April Issue

For all of you who are reading this series for the first time, it all started in April when I posted a pic of my some of my porcelain mugs on Instagram asking what my followers or other IG users were collecting. Since there were quite some responses, I decided to start this series inviting friends, and I do love the result of getting a sneak peek into my virtual and real friend passions and hobbies. Some images are a total surprise others not. All of them are beautiful! This time I am having friends over from Germany, Spain and Italy.


Hi there, I am Anette, professional designer and blogger on Lebenslustiger – an inspirational lifestyle blog where I share my photographs and stylings, DIY’s and up dates of my jewelry shops.
I am German born and raised and after spending many years living and playing on California beaches together with my husband and our two children we recently relocated back to northern Germany and just moved into a gorgeous city loft.
I am an avid collector of natural things like stones, small and large pieces of wood (I just obtained a 550 lbs piece of a large tree and had it hauled into our apartment…),
fibers and baskets. I love the muted colors and I never tire looking at the fine to rough textures, lines and forms of these kind of objects which inspire my work as a designer, photographer and stylist.
Today I show you a small collection of some of my favorite baskets. All of these are brought home from travels. I like to store my yarns and materials in them.
That way I can easily carry them around the apartment and start working with happy busy hands.

Thanks so much for having me, Gudy!

WDBC-La Bici Azul

My name is Maria Eugenia, I am blogging on La Bici Azul, a personal blog where I write about everything that inspires me in the interior, art and design field, while at the same time I am sharing my recipes, experiences or travels  in a rather personal way.

I’d like to share a collection I recently started but I am really excited about it since those are illustrated plates with designs from Lady Desidia (my favorite illustrator), one from Zara Home, onother from Abe the Ape and finally a design I have done myself (below right). I hope I’ll make this collection growing and can count in a future on a remarkable illustrated crockery.

WDBC-Arianna Trapani

About me and my blog:

Living between London & Italy, I’m an Interior designer & stylist and also co-founder and co editor in chief of Heart Home magazine, the UK’s first digital interiors/lifestyle magazine. I first started my blog Arianna’s Daily (formerly known as Arianna Interiors) back in 2010. My blog is a personal lifestyle destination about all things that inspire me.  From Interiors to Travel, from Fashion to Food and all things that feed my curiosity.

Why Am I collecting these pieces?

I recently started collecting medicine bottles because they are beautiful accessories that I am immediately drawn to. Also as they are original pieces, each bottle has a history and a story, which totally fascinates me. It’s become a little addiction of mine and I just cannot get enough of them. They really do make the home that little bit more interesting.


You can see here former issues and there is a Pinterest board with all contributions.

Thank you , ladies, I so much enjoyed your pictures and little stories! Gudy, xx

How about some extra inspiration?

  1. Una sección que me encanta Gudy!! A parte de ver las cosas tan bonitas y a veces curiosas que coleccionan los bloggers, descubro a nuevos blogs!!! En este caso conocía a Maria Eugenia de La Bici Azul, un blog estupendo, pero no conocía a los otros dos, así que gracias!! Besos y buen fin de semana!

    1. Ari, I learned that medicine bottles can be blue too. I totally had the idea they were always kind of brownish. Will always think of you from now on when spotting any:-) xx

  3. I quite enjoy your “What do bloggers collect” series, Gudy. It offers a view into the variety of things people collect as well as an opportunity to “discover” more wonderful blogs to read.

  4. How nice to see Anette here. Her IG is one of my favourites and I love the muted colour palette and those baskets!

    How nice to meet Maria Eugenia with those fabulous illustrated plates!

    Ari, I also didn’t know that medicine bottles come in these blue shades. They are gorgeous.

    Another lovely edition of a great series. Happy weekend ladies x
