Me? Well I collect a few diffferent things. I collect porcelain dolls. At this point I have more than I had when I had to leave Pennsylvania. The picture to the right are some of my favorites. Oh hell, who am I kidding....they're all my favorites! I blame my mom for starting me on this hobby as it was she who gave me my first doll. Sadly, I had to leave that one behind. I had to be careful how many I socked away at the time but Im sure all of you have read about that in the other entries and know exactly what Im talking about. *drops subject*
I collect stuffed animals. Not just the teddy bears pictured to the left. I've got a lion, a lamb and several others in my collection. This has got to be my third collection. I had one when I was still living home with my folks. When they decided they were going to move us to California, we were told to weed our collections down to one box worth. After weeding and allowing the excess to be sold as yard sale fodder, I decided to stay and so what I had left was the start of my second collection. When I had to move from Louisiana to Pennsylvania and the moving truck fell through, I had to leave all but a couple pieces behind. My third collection has been donated by my darling hubby. The ONLY piece that has survived all the moves and all the drama is Ralphie. Ralphie is that dark brown handmade teddy bear with the polka-dot ears in the picture. He is in his 30's and my mom's the one who made him for me.
Being an ex-streamer, and all around music lover, I collect music. That which is pictured to the right doesnt even BEGIN to represent the music I have on hand. I blame my mom again for this one. She instilled the love of music and singing in me. We were taught an appreciation and at least a tolerance of all types of music. On that rack pictured I have a wide selection ranging from 3 Doors Down to Wilson Phillips and much that's in between....even Yanni, Barry Manilow, jazz, country and opera. My favorite is rock though. I cant get enough of rock.
I used to have a small collection of horses as well. Some musical carousel ones, a couple rocking horses and a Breyer. I wouldnt mind starting that collection again, but we just dont have the room for it right now.
So....what do YOU collect?
