Do you collect anything? If you do what do you collect? I love to collect money in different currency and I love to collect all shapes and sizes of small boxes.

The main thing I collect are thimbles. I started years ago and now have one for about everywhere I've been. Actually my daddy had given me a couple of thimbles when he used to drive a truck. One was from Iowa which I had already been there. But one was from Kentucky. I had the thimble for years and then last month I drove back through there so that I would match my collection! lol!

Cool, I had to look up thimbles because I didn't know what that is but that is pretty unique :) Thanks for sharing!

They were used to protect the fingers while sewing.. I used them when I made my quilt and used them when I used to embrodery. But now I just collect the ones that are pretty and not useable! lol!

I do love to collect stamps and postcards from different parts of the world. I use to pride myself on being a PHILATELIST( a person who loves these form of collecting). Later on it evolve to books. My mom was not happy with these because they tend to add more bulk what our house clutter. I now limit my collection to angel figurines and don't keep more than what I need my house to keep.

I too like to collect foreign money but I also like to collect foreign stamps. I find them both to be very interesting things to learn about.

I didn't set out to do it but being a part of my sorority means being gifted with ladybugs every time you turn around. I don't have as many as some but I have seven or eight stuffed ones, earrings, pens, necklaces... And now other friends outside of my sorority have started gifting me with them too. :D Also, books. heh

Before when I was in high school I collect anime cards and stationeries but when my cousins stole all my stationeries, I was really devastated. So I stopped my collection that time. Even my anime cards dwindle to a few and that really made me stop collecting anything at all until I was in college. Since then I collect English pocketbooks from Zebra Publication or Harlequin. Those are my prized possessions now since for me books can never be replaces by computers.

I used to collect scarves a couple of years ago. I still love wearing them, but I haven't added to the collection for a while now. Also, I vaguely remember having a stamp collection when I was a child, but I don't know what has happened to it. I should ask my parents.

Your avatar reminds of my collection of Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel stuff toys by McDonalds. I have a set in a wedding theme, a Chinese theme, I forgot about the others. Like you I also have a collection of coins and paper bills from different countries. When I was young I collected stickers, stationery and stamps. But I don't know where they are now since we've been moving so much for the past years. I collected candles and angels too which are mostly gifts from friends.
