My daughter thinks I have too many of one thing. lol She knows I collect them, and she is right I do have a lot of them, but that won't change my mind. :) I collect mugs..........I have the big sized mugs, and fat mugs and normal mugs, I see a mug I like and I have to get it. I don't think anyone can have too many mugs. lol I have one Thomas Kinkade mug and one mug from Regis and Kelly when they came to town..........the rest are basically regular ones and christmas ones. What is your favorite thing to collect?

I collect lots of different things. In the ornamental range, I collect Cherished Teddies and Disney characters, as well as crafted things, like my oak leaf pot pourri holders, of which I have two. Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore are my most collected Disney Characters, closely followed by the Seven Dwarfs, lol. I have several Cherished Teddies and about three Hummel figurines. Other than that, I like to collect wood, pebbles and the like to make tools for my Craft, and feathers and crystals for my altar. Brightest Blessings.

Wow... I know they're popular collectors items, but it's a small world for sure. :)

I have a lot of collections. Scented candles, perfumes and colognes top my list. I also collect DVD copies of my favorite love stories, both old and new. I also have a collection of pillows -- I sleep with 15 pillows (of different sizes) on my bed. Despite the number of collections I have, I make sure that all are taken care well off. Of course I use the perfumes and colognes. :)

i collect photography books and elephant carving. anything that has an elephant on it. i just love the creature. i can see myself as an elephant. LOL. there's something about it's meekness and at the same time being regal that really strikes me. i also have one weird collection -- and it's pencils. i love the smell of a freshly sharpened pencil. weird huh?

I like collecting pens but I limit my collections to those that I can afford only. I usually buy good pens that has price ranges unto PhP200 only. as much as I wanna buy pens that are expensive and one of a kind, I can't afford it yet.

Ok, I admit it, I am a collector. Salt and pepper shakers, preferably vintage. I have 80 plus sets, and counting. Also old books, Nancy Drew, Bobsey Twins and such.

I use to collect Cherished Teddies but have stopped. The only thing I really collect is anything Baltimore Ravens. I would have redecorated my whole house in purple but Bob drew the line on that one. I will get one room with a Ravens. I have agreed to get a pool table and that room will have a football theme.

Wow, coffee mugs. Your collection must be really interesting. Each mug holds a special memory. I have a collection of a certain type of pottery. It is blue and grey ceramics, salt glazed, and decorated with simple folk art patterns. Something that would have been used in rural areas in Germany and in Pennsylvania. I have a corner cabinet in my kitchen and display the mugs, soup terrines, lard pots and jugs. I have stopped collecting it because my son and daughter in law are not very fond of it and I know when I die it will only be given away. A couple of years ago I started to collect crystal candle sticks. So far I have 11 but my daughter-in-law tells me that is enough, any more would just clutter up my place. Last week I saw 6 or 7 in a second hand shop. I was really surprised to see so many together, they are all single ones, therefore not so expensive. I will get one anyway, I can't resist.
