My personal view on collecting things is that don't do it the the sake of collecting, do it with a purpose and passion, otherwise, it becomes a "job", sooner not later you could possibly deal with resentment...I collect "made in occupied Japan" find porcelain china as well as fine bone china from England...and....too many to list. Good luck!
Love the smiley faces (good use of Photoshop I believe from the other comments?) This reminds me a lot of the big novelty tea cups with pansies that are occasionally around, expect better because the flowers are edible! A nice, sweet photo.
