During the Renaissance, cabinet of curiosities came into fashion as a collection of objects that would often defy classification. As a precursor to the modern museum, the cabinet referred to room(s), not actual furniture, of things that piqued the owners interest and would be collected and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Collectioun of Cunnynge Curioustes is my 21st century interpretation of that idea.
We’re currently ensconced up at the cabin so a lot of what we’re doing is off-line. Who knew that one could exist in a world where they didn’t need a communication device of some kind to relate! Shocking!
