What do you collect?

Recommended Posts

I collect Christmas ornaments from the places my FI and I have traveled. It started after we were dating for a few months we went to NYC. I was so upset when I thought I had lost it, but I found it months later.

I also persoanlly collect Disney movies on DVD. I have to have them all. I love Disney :0)

I've got several small collections.

 

I collect Limoges porceline boxes. My aunt got me started on them. For a while I was all about anything french, so I have the Eiffle Tower, Arc De Triumph, etc. I have lots of other french stuff, too.

 

My grandfater used to collect salt and pepper shakers, so I inherited his collection, which is really neat and I'm sure worth some money.

 

I save to corks from my wine bottles and toss them in this huge glass vase in my dining room. I'm having to put them in smaller containers now. I'm kindo of a wino!

 

When I was younger I collected Barbie Dolls. RIght now they are all boxed up. I'll just hold onto them and hope they are worth something someday.

I have a small and new collection that I just started. I stole the idea from a girl I work with, and love it. I collect fridge magnets from places we travel to. I love walking by and being reminded of our trips together.

I have a very small collection of pilbury doughboy things, but not by choice.

I have one Mccoy pottery piece. it's bobby the baker cookie jar. he looks kind of like the pilsbury doughboy. He came from a crack house after my parents ran off the squaters.

before that I had a cookie jar of the pilsbury doughboy that I won in a contest. it came with a years supply of cookies.

so to add to my collection my mom gave my a PDB magnet. I think I'm supposed to collect pilsbury doughboys now.

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!!!!!!!!!!
We buy an ornament each year. I pick one & mike picks one. last year he picked out the silliest snowman. you squeeze it & it plays music. we don't even have a tree, but we have a collection of ornaments.

I also collect pictures of people with lion statues. I have an album of them. When my friends/family go on vacation they bring them back. I take them with every cool lion I see too.

And I collect pictures of college campuses. I have them framed on the wall in a collage.

I try to limit my collections to pictures so I don't clutter my place. my place is small & I'm naturally messy.

That is a fantastic idea!

My photographer has a garden gnome that was liberated from a graden. His name is Felix and he loves to travel. He stows away on various vacations or will just come hang out in your house and take pictures. There are several albums of his adventures and I think he even has his own MySpace page!

We wanted to take him to Jamaica, but didn't want to risk him getting broken or accused of smuggling drugs.

Star Wars Memorabilia...anything and everything to do with the Saga. I've had to refrain myself for the past four or five years, but my family have started turning my birthday and Christmas into an excuse to feed my addiction. blush2.gif

 

I also have a thing for ladybugs, so I have a small collection of ladybug stuff.

 

Books...I like owning the books I read. (and there are quite a few)

 

Flip flop magnets from the places we visit...this is a new one. I picked one up at La Ronde (an amusement park in Montreal) a few summers ago, and without thinking about it, I picked one up in Bermuda last year. So it's become a thing for me now. cheesy.gif

 

I'm also big on Christmas ornaments...I probably have enough for two large trees, but I can't help myself!

I used to do that, too! I made a few corkboards, though & was forced to start all over again.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
