My biggest collection is Frogs, not the actual animals, but anything with frogs on it...knick knacks, household decor, etc. I got started with frogs when i was registering for my wedding gifts back in 1998. They had a shower curtain of a frog lounging on a beach chair and i just loved it. Noone ended up getting it for me and when i went back to the store after my bridal shower, it was gone. So i never got it, but still was hooked on frogs. Heck i even got my first tattoo soon after and guess what, it was a frog~ lol. Now i like butterflies, ladybugs and fairies, but butterflies are prob my fave of the new things. And yes i will be getting a butterfly tattoo..lol.

My collection is knowing more herbal plant around me. I read from the herbal books and then look for the plant. It is a joy when you found it and practice it. See the result is true stated in the book. My first experience is I found a tootch ache plant and I try it and also give to my friend. This plant relased the pain of the tooth and swellen gum immediately. This plant is called Spilanthes acmella and can be post out through mail. Because of this collection, I try to cllect the seed and sell to people and putting sale online like moringa oleifera powder and seed, balsam (finger nail plant) motherwort(mother's lover) and pepper seeds.

Although I am pretty much a hoarder in general, I do actually collect beads. I do use them as well to make jewellery, but there are some that I have that will never be used. I started my love of beads when I was a toddler and I used to thread these big wooden beads on strands of wool and wear them around my neck. As I got older I found more beads made of all different things and all different shapes and sizes. I still have the first beads that I owned too... see, I am a hoarder *clears throat* I mean collector!

Well, since you asked! I got started collecting coins on accident! My ex-wife somehow got a bunch of Susan B. Anthony dollars, 20 to be exact! So she said, "can you put these up for me and save them, because I'll spend them"? I said sure, and I've saved them for 14 years, plus I've accumulated 20 more! Well during this time, I started saving wheat pennies, foreign money, and two-dollar bills,(14 to be exact), and this slowly became a habit! Well the best one came when I started accumulating gold dollar coins (Sacagawea)! I'm up to 450 of these gold dollars, and I discovered I have a love for gold! And now everyday, I'm on the lookout for foreign money, gold dollar coins, Susan B. Anthonies, wheat pennies, and two-dollar bills!

Hi there Missbdoll! Yes, I am collecting books that I actually enjoy reading. I used to just borrow and download books but my interest in collecting them started when an online friend of mine who lives in another country sent me the book "DaVinci Code" by Dan Brown. I really like it. I didn't stop reading it unless I have something really important to do. It's also hardbound. From then, I started looking for good books on sale and just started collecting them. I ahve more now in my collection when my Aunt sent me two boxes of different books. I'm going to choose the interesting ones on it and keep the others away. How about you?

As of now I don’t collect anything but in my childhood I used to collect stamps and shells. My dad used to go abroad often and get letters from many places. He bought me a philately scrap book and it was mainly is idea. He used to keep the stamps for me and I would stick and index them. then whenever we used to visit any seaside, my favourite hobby used to be to collect various shapes, sizes and designs of shells. I have the most minute ones which look like small butterflies when spread properly. Now I don’t have time to pursue any of these, but looking at the scrap book and the shells, I do feel nice remembering those days.

I love collection coins from different countries and of course coins of different times as well. I started collected coin at the age of 12 when my grand mom gave me silver coin of her time. And from that time I started collecting coins. And to aid my dad used to travel to the different places. Whenever he used to return he used to bring me different coins of the country he had visited. This is why I started collecting coins. Now I have coins of more than 25 countries.
