Do you have all the collection in a single photograph and a list of all items with description? I would love to get hands on it. Sometime this year or next, B and I would like to visit your mini-Museum.

I do not have a single photograph that captures all my collection. It now numbers into the upper 800's. I know several other Texans who have larger and nicer collections than mine but I am trying to catalog as much as I can. Most of what I consider to be my nicer pieces I did extensive documentation on for the show at the Kemp. Surprisingly, I have yet to retake photographs of most of those for the blog. Something I would like to do later this summer. Most of the photos I share with the blog are part of my effort to better document what is currently out on display here. I also believe that it is more enjoyable for other collectors when I organize groupings into categories or by designer since the size of our families collection can be visually overwhelming. Would love to have a visit when you are down this way.
