I collect cookie jars--mostly those with a Christmas theme, & along with that Christmas themed plates...they're just soo adorable... I also love to collect craft punchers--you know those punchers that have different shapes, like an oak leaf, or heart...it started way back in my college years & I have gone crazy over them! Too bad though that I haven't used them as much!

I used to collect action figures and comic books. But now my kids are older and there's not as much money for *my* toys, lol, so the only thing I really collect is cobalt blue glass. Suncatchers, candleholders, kitchen items, that sort of thing.

I don't think I collect strange things. I collect fairies or faeries...known to be spelled differently but are the same. I collect Coca Cola items. Even the small glass bottles. :) I collect Neopets cards and other neopets items. I collect my calendars that I have used through the years. It is nice to flip back and see what I was doing that year of the calendar. I collect stamps...not uncommon. I collect coins and old dollars. I once had a silver certificate...but someone stole it. I collect things with stars and moons. I love celestial things! And I collect the things my kids do. One daughter is awesome in art beyond her age...I collect her work with the date. Another daughter is a good creative writer. I collect her stories and assignments she has done that she is really proud of. But there are things that I collect from all of them too. Early signatures...class work...certificates they won...etc.

Nothing strange about mine. I tend to collect junk and it collects dust. Just kidding. I have a small animal figurine collection. It became expensive and I had nowhere to put things so it has not been an ongoing thing unfortunately. Also pieces have been broken.....a leg here an ear there. I have a pair of horses that I rec'd for my 13th birthday; and a pair of Scotty dogs that's been in our family longer than I can remember. My Dad gave these doggies to me just recently. I can remember dusting them assiduously when I was a child.

Just admit to two things. Hello Kitty and books. Saw lots of Hello Kitty as a kid, however, just now at my age am I picking them up. Books have always been a big deal for me. Can't say that these are strange. Will be looking forward to your other responders.
