Do you collect anything?

  1. Hey, I know that we already have a thread devoted to this but it is in the break room and has been dead for six months so I figured I would start a new thread to ask: What do you collect? I collect matchbox sized ambulances. I just kind of felt that ambulances weren't getting any attention from the world at large and it basically started out as a "Let's see how many we can find" type of thing.

    So, if anyone has any Elvis stuff they want to send, just PM me for my address! lol

    I collect rabbits....not live! But I have tons of rabbit ceramics, statues, stuffed toys, pictures, cookie jars, etc. In fact, every room in my house has at least 1 rabbit in it.
    I also collect kitty cats....I have 3 live ones and several ceramics.
    And I am becoming interested in ladybugs. I have collected a few momentos of ladybugs.

    I collect Eeyore...and pigs. The Eeyore thing is just because I love him. I didn't actually collect Eeyores until one day, I was upset..and my husband took my kids out to run some errands. They came home and brought me that 'Flapping Ears Eeyore" toy to cheer me up. Its been a thing in my house ever since.

    And the pigs..well, its a VERY long story. ETOH involved. :chuckle

    DUST... .. just kidding. My daughter collects post cards. Everywhere we go she gets one. It is really great. They don't take up room in a suitcase on vacations. She puts them on her walls around her ceiling. They have memories, it is really great.

    Blue glass. My grandfather collected it and I have loads of blue glass mentholatum jars and Kaopectate bottles, etc. That dark cobalt blue.

    Other than that, I just spent an hour sweeping up dust and soot (sigh) . . . darn woodstove.

    I don't like knicknacks for the most part. Nor clutter of any kind. Both my mom and grandma are clutter collectors and I feel absolutely claustrophobic in their homes. Plus they smoke so everything reeks. I'm probably rebelling against my childhood.

    I collect alms...

    ... kidding

    I used to collect coins. Now I'm mostly into millitaria - especially WWII related.

    But as always - perpetual shortage of funds.

    I also like collecting classic works o art (not paintings) - music and books. I'm now slowly expanding into movies as well. Again, most of them are millitary themed.

    Gargoyles, celestial things, and books. I used to collect pigs, but only because I was a lab manager in a pork processing factory. Someone gave me one as a joke I think and it snowballed. I gave my collection away several years ago...

    I collect a couple of things, no way related to each other though.
    I have an assortment of classic Star Trek stuff, mostly technology based things, you know space ships, etc.
    The other this is baseball style hats. Not really baseball, like the Met, Yankees, but that style, car dealers, police, things like that.
    My favorite ones are medical helicopter group...(hint, hint) :chuckle

    I love polar bears and collect polar bear things...not stuffed animals, just original things that have polar bears on them. I don't know why but I have been obsessed with them for years!
