I think we’ve talked about this before but we have so many new people now I thought it would be fun to do it again. You know Nikki and I like Paula Deen and I came across this today on Facebook and wanted to share. She collects vintage chicken dishware. Do you collect things? What? Do you switch up and collect a bunch of things?? Do share 🙂

I’m not really a collector. I used to collect various things at different times in my life, though nothing really systematically. Probably my longest and most expensive collection kick would be kids’ books (especially those used to teach reading, the older the better). But at some point, I became a “less is more” kind of person, and I really just want to get rid of stuff.
I collect vintage one hundred dollar bills. Don’t have nearly enough.
When I was younger I collected dolls and baseball cards both of which I still have. Now I just have a collection of dust around my house!
does dust count? I have a LOT of dust around here!
For a while, in HS, I ended up collecting Precious Moments figurines. Mostly because my sister-in-law did, and I wanted to have a ‘collection’. I kept justifying it by saying, “oh, they’ll go up in value, I can sell them at a profit later!” Only problem is, they made so stinkin’ many, nobody wants them. They’re certainly not collectibles. So I have a bunch of them in boxes, waiting for the next garage sale.
Not really. My grandma collected dolls and when she passed away they were split up between her daughters and granddaughters. So, I have dolls, but I didn’t keep her hobby going! I don’t even collect shoes like I use to! 🙂
I started out as a young adult collecting thimbles but that got really boring really fast. I still have them in a little shelf box thing but stopped that over 25 years ago. I fell big time for lighthouses and I still will buy something if I see something that I really like. My dad has gotten me two really nice collections from the Danburry mint. One is a collection of 8 plates all with a different landmark lighthouse and then he got me one of little miniature lighthouses that pretty much mirror the plates. I keep them in the china closet. They are really beautiful but I just don’t collect them much anymore. I have SO many little knick knack lighthouse stuff.
Now, I really only collect ticking clocks and roosters/chickens for my kitchen. I have winding clocks in my bedroom. I love the way they sound but I really only like really old ones so I look for them at antique stores or the swappers meet.
We really don’t collect anything
I do love Paula Deen! 🙂 I don’t collect anything, but I always wanted to. I wanted to collect something! I always had this thing for snow globes, and wanted to collect them, but never did. I had a few growing up, and I loved them, but lost them. I love things with stars, and when we get moved I do plan on slowly collecting the rustic star stuff. So far, I just have it in my bathroom (thanks to my mom-in-law.)
The biggest reason for wanting to collect something, was to have something to pass down. My grandma collected Hummels, and she gave those to my mom, and I’m sure I’ll get them.
I love snow globes too. I have a few. I used to have quite a few Christmas ones but the water in them turned all yellow and gross and I had to throw them away. I wonder if it’s because they were stored in the dark 11 months of the year?
We’ll work on getting you some stars. You already have a baseball star 🙂
Get her a skylight… then she’ll have stars every night!
That would be sweet! 🙂
And you’re right, Joy, we do have a baseball star!!
I used to collect home interiors ‘masterpieces’ which are ceramic wildlife figures, i have quite a few of them but quit collecting them about 10 years or so ago.
I have Snowbabies, but not a great many of them. Soooo, I need to know… does junk count? Lots and Lots of junk ’round here!
I also love Boyd’s Bears – I think that’s them. Those goofy black bears that are doing outdoorsy kinds of things. I only have two of them, so I guess you can’t call it a “collection”. I have a few Breyer Horses from when I was a kid, too. But I didn’t collect them so much as “buy them so I have them to play with”.
Not Boyd’s Bears…. BEARFOOT BEARS!!! They’re so stinkin’ cute!
