That is a different and nice thing to collect. I am sure they are pretty to. Its nice that your husband helps you collect them and he even gets you some of them. My husband knows I love dream catchers,angels,candles and Jesus pictures. And that is nice to keep when you are given something when you are having your first child. It is always something to cherish. Have a good day.

I like candles and dream catchers. I also like plush type animals. I love things like tigers so animals that are in tiger form (as well as ceramic ones) tend to get put up a lot in my room and apartment. Other than that I'm not sure I really collect many things that can be put up. I like animals so generally anything related to animals is OK in my book.

Now that sounds like nice stuff to collect. It sounds very delicate. Well your shoes would go well in one of my rooms because it all lace and Victorian. I like the Victorian style look. Sounds like you like to collect some nice things. Have a wonderful day.

Dream catchers are made with Indian feathers that are beautiful. And it is said when you have a bad dream the Indian catcher catches the bad dreams so you don't have to deal with them anymore. I have always loved stuff that had to do with Indians and there lives.

I am more of an accumulater than a collector. I don't go out looking for things to collect - it just happens! I have lots of different sorts of paper, material, wool, buttons and anything that can be used to make something else.

I associate my collections with the places I've been to. When I was working in Asia, I used to collect masks for my travel. But I had a hard time displaying them, as some of them are a little bit delicate. Back here in north America, I started collecting fridge magnets. It's easier to collect, and can display it right away in the fridge.

I love the elegance of antique glassware. Personally, I collect amber colored glass. I also have started collecting fairy lamps!
