Poll Results: Culling



I tried to thin it out in 2010:  37%
I plan to cull it in 2011:  31%
I'm just getting started, whaddaya mean cull?  18%
You'll not pry anything from my cold, dead hands   31%
Sometimes I think I will cull   18%
Collection? What collection?  12%
Who you calling "culling"?  6%

Thank you for responding.  Thank you for being all over the place...such is what I hoped.


If we are all at different points in our interest / obsession / long term plan, we should be at different points in an arc toward assessing and taming...or not.


An arc which, I think comes back around again.   


I'll be sharing the insides of other people's collections throughout 2011; some are chastisingly organized, some are delightfully random.  Let me know if you're willing to share pictures of yours--you have the option to use your real name or an alias.  :)

Great idea, my inner voyeur rejoices :)

Ooh. I'll send you some pix... if I can manage to take some. They don't tend to come out well on my digital camera - too much glare, focus is wrong, whatevs. I never planned (or claimed) to be a photographer.

And I'm with Marina, my inner voyeur is ridiculously excited.

ScentScelf said...

Marina, my outer voyeur is going to have trouble releasing the photos...making the hidden public and all.... ;)

ScentScelf said...

Muse,

Hooray! Please do. Don't apologize for photo quality; that may add to the voyeur factor you and Marina have referred to... :)

Musette said...

Well, I'll send you photos...but it ain't pretty...

xo

I may be in culling denial.

I want to and I mean to (and actually did over the holidays), but they are soon to be replaced, I'm sure. As you said, the arc comes back again.

As I have already posted pictures on my blog (on 'rearranging day') I will sit back and enjoy the collections of others...if you can bring yourself to release them.

Great idea!

Ines said...

You can have pictures of mine. :) By the time I take them, there will probably be more than is now. :D Just can't help it...

P.S. A good friend (the best kind actually) brought me Ode a la Vanille and Boxeuses from Paris - I can't wait to get my hands on them.

ScentScelf said...

Musette,

Yay! (And, because we've discussed your collection, I happen to know ammo is involved. That'll be a nice flavor.)

ScentScelf said...

Josephine,

An arc like a boomerang, eh?

Thanks for reminding me about your post. Perhaps at one point I'll do a round up links to other postings...they are out there....

ScentScelf said...

Ines,

Oooh, nice. Perfumes straight from Paris. Send my own thanks to your friend; a Paris traveler willing to transport perfume...nice....

Ode a la Vanille has some serious fans--are you one? Recently I've been listening to them busy chattering about whether or not it is going to disappear.

I try to look the other way. I'm trying to maintain a proper voodoo maintaining silence about changes to/disappearance of Chamade...you know, from the house that took away my Guet-Apens in whatever form/name.

Yes, please, send pictures!

Furriner said...

I won't be able to send pics until I get home.... I'll see what I can do when I get there.... lol.

Vanessa said...

I would have voted for "already embarked on culling in 2010" had I been quicker off the mark.

Have pics I am happy to share of my collection - with and without onlooking cat.

ScentScelf said...

Furriner,

No laughing! Send 'em over!

ScentScelf said...

Bonks,

Would love both kinds of pictures. Could be particularly interested in one with the cat expressing an opinion. ;)

Wish I could go back and alter the poll; alas, Blogger keeps me honest...
