What do you collect?

What do you collect?

I had a fun conversation the other day about collections.

It started with such a simple question, "What do you collect?" and turned into a fun, animated conversation.

Which made me realize that I've never asked you, blog readers. What do you collect?

My collection answer is, our house is really too small to collect one specific item (other than new Fiesta dinnerware - new so I don't cry every time a piece breaks). Rob and I just tend to like off-the-wall items, like the giant 8 photo prop and the salty sailor I dragged home from my grandma's house.

Given a little extra cabinet space, I could certainly see myself collecting Pyrex and any number of other items.

How about you? Collect anything?

Jewel Tea ware.  We were blessed with inheriting an almost full set; and have added to it over the years.  However, one must always remember that what you value others may not.  Collecting for a financial investment is not wise.

Cool - I'd never heard of it, but I googled it after you commented. Looks neat.
