I absolutely love collecting true-to-form african-american figurines, and unusual jewelry. I love collecting stuff that makes a statement, I just wish more stuff was geared towards bbw's. like stuff that says something like "bbw's do it bigger and better". stuff like that
What a fun thread ! ! !
It's been educational to read about everyones collections.
I really don't *collect * any per se. I try to get a pair of earrings or some other form of jewelry in my travels, as a souvenir.
My biggest collection would have to be plants,I am a dyed in the wool plantaholic. No matter where I live or travel, I have to learn the plants I'm not familiar with.
I collect African American 12" G.I. Joe Action Figures. Started 3 years ago when I bought my nephew a G.I. Joe for Christmas. Now up to 40 action figures. Also Die-Cast minature Air-Planes, Shot glasses over 400 now and still going.
I collect all things tigers/lions especially globes, figurines and pictures. ALso collect anything to do with Phantom of the Opera. Went to see play in NYC twice over many years ago. Glad when movie came out but never will be like seeing the play :)
I'll say I collect guitars, that sounds better than saying I have no self control, and alot are considered collectable.
I also have lots of cows, small, large, plastic, wood, iron, stuffed, etc. They are all funny or weird looking cows , I never considered them a collection but I would have to say because of the number of them it is becoming one. I also don't know why I get cows , If I see one that looks unique (to me) I pick it up. There was a huge fiberglass cow from the top of a resturant on ebay, I actually bid on it until the price got too crazy. I really wanted to put it on the front of the boat and go out for a sail, then put it in the front yard (take a left and when you see the steer thats the house)... guess I can only dream now... someday :8.
I am a big Buffy the Vampire the Slayer fan, have all the seasons on dvd and collect the cards as well. I also collect hockey media guides, as they are like a timecapsule of a particular team. I also collect a wide range of other items like books, pucks, pennants, buttons, lapel pins, etc.
I have a vast thimble collection ! Any time I travel or I hunt down a thimble souvenir.
When ever a friend or relative goes on a trip they always bring me back a thimble,
and sometimes when I make new friends on line they too send me thimbles.
Presently I have a little over 300 and the collection still grows !
Thanks for asking such a kewl question !
Scoot you are precious. What a wonderful heart you have and I have no doubt your karma is in great shape! What a superb world it would be if everyone focused as much on collecting real blessings as they do on collecting money and baubles! Thanks for the reminder!
This is interesting, it may sound weird to you or any, but I collect "blessings" (serious), I love to help people and I look to get their "real" blessings. I believe that will improve my karma, make it positive. I know when i receive a real blessing, makes you feel good, and some fake ones too... those i forget.
