Crazy Collections of Apartment Dwellers


While designers will tell you to gather and artfully arrange the items you collect, many of these designers probably envision collections of statuettes from your trip to China or maybe even your burgeoning collection of milk glass.

In Washington, D.C., there's an eclectic shop, Wake Up Little Suzie, that's filled to the brim with strange and unusual decorations, toys, jewelry and home goods. Its owner, Susan Lihn, spoke about her home decor in a recent article in TheWashington Post's Express, D.C.'s free daily commuter newspaper.

As one might expect, Lihn's amassed an unusual collection of items to showcase around her home.
