Thursday Thirteen #19

Thirteen things I collect or have collected

1. Stamps - Well, I don't really anymore. They just sit in a closet. Some of them are so beautiful though that I have often thought of framing them.
2. Napkins - Not just any old napkin, but printed paper napkins. I loved doing this as a child, but I still collect them when I see a really pretty one.
3. Boxes - Decorative boxes basically.
4. Nancy Drew Books - I have the whole original set, but I'm trying to replace the newer ones with older editions.
5. Stationary - Not on purpose, I just have a real weakness for it. It's not like I even write a lot of letters!
6. Yarn - Another one that is not on purpose. I LOVE to crochet, so I am constantly buying yarn for "future" projects. I have a real weakness for that too!
7. Postcards - I love when people send me postcards from their vacations. I get to take a little mini trip when I get one.
8. Flamingos - Anything with a flamingo on it. It started out as a joke in college because I thought they were so tacky, now I love them for their tackiness.
9. Dolphins - Just kuz I love them.
10. Earrings - I just buy and buy them. I am so addicted to them.
11. Ribbons - I really don't know why. I really like ribbon I guess.
12. Wrapping supplies in general - I love to wrap gifts and I hoard all the cool paper, ribbons, bows, tissue and boxes I can find. My dream is to have a wrapping room.
13. Dirt - I know this sounds weird. This is from my childhood. I don't collect it anymore. As a child I felt sorry for dirt because everyone hated it so much that I decided to collect it in little baggies and write down where it came from. No one ever said I was normal.

Hehehe, I've never heard of anyone collecting dirt... well, as long as you don't count rocks and what not :)

I collected post cards for a while and I've got a book of them... :)

Great idea for a list. I really enjoyed reading your collectables :D

I did collect stamps but that was way back my teens. Now I don't and don't even know where my collections are. Postcard I still do.
Thanks for passing by.
