What do you collect?

Recommended Posts

My FI and I are not big collectors at all but we do collect Christmas ornaments from our travels.

 

It really started accidentally on our first trip away together (Savannah, Georgia) we were out walking around and went into a little boutique that was going out of business and had the nicest Christmas ornaments - we bought 2 that represented that trip (one is a hand blown Georgia Peach and the other was something to do with Valentine's Day as we were there over that weekend).

 

I am really looking forward to buying a cool "Honeymoon" related ornament in Hawaii!

 

What do you collect and why? smile78.gif

I collect everything and anything Alice in Wonderland. Books, toys, housewares, etc. Not really big on the Disney brand of Alice, but I still have a few of those. It's my absolute favorite children's story of all time.

 

I also collect piggy banks. I just think they are adorable. I especially love to find unusual ones at flea markets.

 

And I collect fairies because I love the idea of those mystical little creatures.

 

I promise my collections aren't out of hand though! They are all very small and contained collections.

I really don't collect anything, I do have a few Boston Terrier stuff, like a cute kissing salt and pepper shacker, but not really a collection.

 

Cain collects a few things. Snowboards and Starbucks coffee mugs of places he/we have been to.

We've always wanted to start up a Christmas ornament collection, Alyssa.

 

Other than that, we collect hand blown glass as well as other forms of art (mainly paintings). Oh, also we've really been getting into wine lately and would love to start collecting that (i.e. actually keeping it longer than we drink it! rofl.gif)

Another thing I love, I wouldnt say I "collect" but if I see something that's adorable, I'll get it- fairies and unicorns. just its funny cuz the movie dodge ball, joe cracks up at the part when they go the the girls house cuz there is unicorn stuff ALLL over, hahahahaha that was my room as a kid. Now days if i see anything peacock i want it, haha im going to have interesting house decor huh? lololol ill have to assign every room a theme.

Wow - it's more like what don't I collect?

 

I have been collecting ever since I was a teenager. I started with typical stuff like stickers (big in the 80's) and stamps.

 

About 10 years ago, I started getting involved in antiques, and about 8 years ago, my collections were growing and I started selling antiques and collectibles. I love going to estate auctions.

 

My main collection is of McCoy pottery from the 1930s - 1940s and antique and vintage jewelry. I love shopping for the jewelry for my wedding! I also collect vintage tins - I love the old advertising on them.

Every Christmas we go out and buy the ugliest ornament we can find. It started accidently a few years ago when we bought this snowman globe. If you look closely at his face his eyes are popping out of his head and he has a big frown. It's halrious (an inside joke between the two of us) So the following year we went out and got another snowman globe, and this one has a really sad face if you look close up. We're total dorks!!!!!!!!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
