another non-cancer topic for a Friday afternoon. On Dec 6 2009 I started a thread called the same as above.....was just going to bump it but decided to start a new one....you can read the old one just by putting it into search....I think it tells a lot about one another.

I hope anyone new will join in or expand on things if you posted before. I am a Christmas collector .....this year I have been concentrating on little paper Japanese houses from the 1940`s....Anne you told me about Limoges....I would love to hear some details about your dishes.....

anything? ??? anybody???/ actually i like to collect soooo many things but I'll let someone else start.....pepe???? are you a collector???? :):) hugs to all

    Yes, as a matter of fact...
    I collect tumors it seems. I've had a bunch of them but thankfully I've gotten rid of many of them. ;-)

    I am somewhat of a guitar collector. I have 9 (I had 10 but traded 2 of them in for a nice Epiphone Les Paul) At one time I had a collection of different beer. Mostly imported ones. This was before the micro-brews took off. I had at one point around 100 different bottles of beer. yes, I know...99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer...

    Ice Tea Stirers
    Being a good Southern Lady...lol...I collect blown glass ice tea stirers, not to be confused with spoons.

    They are usually a clear glass 'stick' with either a blown glass ornament on the top end or a colored tiny spoon shape on the bottom. The glass stick is sometimes hollow and can be used for a straw.

    I collect dolls representing children. I have a wide variety including some by modern doll artists. They are all sizes from a few inches to almost 4 feet tall.

    Collector
    I have been collecting angel figurines since I was pretty young...many moon ago.
    I collect other things as well but angels are my weakness

    My dad was career Army so no matter where we were stationed I would get an angel, so I them from several different state and counties. I have an 8 year old grandaughter who I buy an angel for every Christmas nd birthday...she has started expecting them and that makes me so happy as she loves them too.

    Collecting
    I seem to collect junk! Actually I have been collecting miniatures for many years. These were supposed to go into a dollhouse that I was supposed to build! I did actually build most of the first dollhouse, but became quite disillusioned with the whole process after my husband accidentally hit the dollhouse with our Van and knocked off the whole front porch!! I have purchased several dollhouses at yard sales with the intention of finishing them, but alas my procrastination gene seems to be in place as usual so maybe next year??

    I also seem to collect "dead relatives" as I do genealogy as a hobby! Kind of a never ending process, but it can be interesting. I have visited many family grave sites in my travels. My poor family really hates it when I suggest a little detour to check out a cemetery! ( Haven't been arrested for trespassing yet, but probably will be someday!! ) It is also fun to check out those famous relatives who led respected lives, but sorta forgot to mention that they were a Civil War Deserter who was also an escaped convict and had managed to be pardoned after paying off quite a few people!

    Hope you are enjoying your hobbies and collections!

    Take Care,

    I collect Dept. 56 buildings that I display in a little village at Christmastime. I probably have about 35 houses along with people and accessories. I even have a little train that runs through the village. :-)

    surfboards
    Whether **** wants to admit it or not, I'd say he collects surfboards. We just had a beautiful surfboard rack made for our lanai. It displays his 11 boards. (OK some belong to our daughter and I use the stand up board.)

    Aloha,

    Swarovski crystal pieces mainly animals
    been collecting these for years.

    mainly I love the marine creatures.

    my one unusual thing is that I take them down
    diving and photograph them on remote coral reefs.
