Exactly How Many Is TOO MANY ???

I was reading Janets blog the other day and she mentioned that more than 2 of anything is considered a it got me to thinking...YIKES thats always scary...
I have WAY TOO MANY COLLECTIONS then and i didnt even realise it.

So i thought id share with you my biggest collection...well its not THAT it ???

My cushions !

Ummm i think i counted 38 (including a few there without inserts...and im sure theres some more hiding in the linen cupboard too) and i have 2 more on their way to me via Aus Post....ummm...Does anyone see a problem here???
Now, one might ask what does one do with all these cushions?? Well umm, i look at them...*tee hee* and i admire them...and SOMETIMES i let people sit on them (but i have to straighten them all up before i go to bed, or i cant sleep..i lay there thinking Are my cushions all straight?????) Shane thinks this is serious OCD behaviour and gets a good laugh out of it! Sometimes he will dare me to go to bed without tidying them up.....i really try to...then i end up running back and straightening them all and screaming at him to Just Leave Me Alone, You Dont Understand!!! All the while he is absolutely wetting himself laughing at me. LOL.

At least they dont have names...yet....

So what do you collect??? Im sure theres someone out there with way more cushions than me..??? Please please show yourself and come join me at Cushion-Aholics-Anonymous.

Im begging you. Dont make me be the only crazy one.

Ok now im off to put them all back in their places and admire them some more....

ahhh sweet sweet cosy cushion heaven.

I think i may go shopping and buy just one more more cant hurt...

Love and Pink Kisses,
Shann xxx

My sister plumps up the cushions on her lounges as soon as you get up - she doesn't even wait until you leave or bedtime :-)

Hi Shan,
Thanks for offering to rescue me from the 'out of control paper mess'. As you can see I have escaped and survived my 'Non-Spring Clean'.......but just. That was some serious studio cleaning.
The good news is, I found lots of things I forgot I had.

Loooooove your pretty cushion collection. If we belive Janet, that more than 2 items constitutes a collection then I am in serious trouble!!!!

Off to hide my many collections. LOL

Linda said...

Hi Shann,
Loooove your cushion collection, I too always like to straighten up before I go to bed, but I don't HAVE too, I won't loose sleep over it, LOL but we all have our quirks don't we.
Cheers Linda

Umm, sweetie. Did you not tell me you bought more cushions today?

Kim's Treasures said...

I love your cushion collection, they are so pretty! My daughter teases me about the little birds I buy here and there. They are just so cute and can be tucked in an empty space so easily.
Have a great day!

Candy- A Pretty Home said...

Jeanette said...

Ok I'm assuming that those are all put on the bed for picture-taking purposes and that is not how your bed that you sleep in every night is? They are very pretty by the way!

Sentimental Roses said...

Counting Your Blessings said...

Hmmm.. let me think... FABRIC! And rosy china. And old rose paintings. And chippy, peeling, rusty stuff. And vintage handbags... I think I may need to join a group of some kind =) Blessings... Polly

Pearl said...

Sweet Shann... Thank you for coming by to check on me. I've not been feeling too well the past several days, but hopefully I can do some catching up today. Loved this post with all of your beautiful cushions! Not too many, in my eyes. I have more collections that I am willing to admit to. Maybe someday I'll confess to them all... LOL

Have a beautiful weekend, Sweetie! God bless...

~hugs 'n love~

Sally said...

Your pillows are lovely!! I'm the same way about mine being straight! I'm also adding your link for the photo challenge. :)

Gail McCormack said...

Shann do all those cushions live on your bed or did you just collect them from around your home for the photo? Please tell me you don't really put all of them on your bed every single morning, I have trouble with my THREE in the mornings.
I'm trying to uncollect (is that a word)

our shabby cottage said...

Hi Shannon,
I reckon I could rival your cushion collection! I'd have to go and count but I have the same problem.... Hee Hee. Sometimes my Husband can't even SEE the bed!!

Nahlia said...

Hi Shannon,
I'm a lurker here and your ebay store! My question is - how do you actually fit in the bed with all those cushions!?! Or do they have a special place where you place them, neatly of course! I understand the insanity poor bf has to contend with me 'bin scabbing' off nature-strips every time there's a hard waste collection! I'm on a chair mission at the moment, lol.
Drop by my blog sometime, although my place is 'grasshopper' to your lovely home sensei ;)

Pink Icing on the Cake said...

Well good day to you sweet pea, I am loving your cushions or pillows as we call them over here. I too have a pillow fetish. It's a serious there help for us out there??? Have a wonderful weekend. Hi to Mum Coll.


Kelly said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! I absolutely adore your cushion collection, it is just gorgeous! And I would have to make sure they were all fluffed and adjusted too!


Nonnie said...

i LOVE your cushions....every single one! and i have a problem leaving any cushions not straightened up either...but don't think i worry about them at night! :)
i used to keep quite a few extra on our bed and my husband just thought it was so "impractical"! can you imagine! :)
love it!

Linda and Laura Lilly Cottage said...

A girl can never have too many cushions, too much glitter and sparkle or too much pink!! I love your cushion collection and it looks like as is our house, our cushions are also admired greatly by pussycats!! I am forever cat hair removing my own special cushions and if you try and put them somewhere they can't get to them it just makes it more exciting for them and they will hunt them out...other people cats get mice..mine get cushions!!! Have a comfy day, kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.

Jannet said...

Oh my gosh! Shannon, I just had to stop here....what a gorgeous collection!! I love all your rock girl!
