I have collected various items in the past, just to be collecting something.
A long time ago, I would collect dolls. It got to be too much after awhile since dolls take up a lot of room.
So I sold them all.
I collected cat figurines for awhile. That wasn't too bad. I had a cabinet that I would put them all in. After
awhile they started to become kind of weird to me. I thought they were looking back so I sold them all.
My sister had me in the habit of collecting beanie babies. I had over a thousand of them. When I lived in
Florida, a lady in the Mall there came to my house and bought the majority of them. I had a house fire some
years back and that was the end of what I had left. Then my mother died. My mother collected them too.
My sister had got rid of all hers. One day, my sister came over and gave me all my mother's beanie babies.
Now once again, I have a cabinet full of them.
Then I started collecting Fiestaware. Just the new dishes although I did buy some old cups off eBay once.
I have 14 sets of Fiestaware dishes, each in a different color. I have a lot of the serving pieces and more.
BUT they keep coming out with new colors and new pieces and they are heavy dishes so for the most part,
I quit collecting them.
I do have a small collection of salt/pepper shakers. I'm not really into that but some how I accumulated
So now, I don't really collect anything.
I love doing jigsaw puzzles. They have gotten expensive. My sister loves doing them too. Must be a
heredity thing. She went to a yard sale several years ago and they were selling over 300 jigsaw puzzles
for a very low price. She passed on it and then decided to go back and get them but they were gone.
I called her a dum dum.
I like to color. I use color pencils but mostly gel pens. Mostly in the winter I find myself coloring and/or
doing jigsaw puzzles. I don't know why but it seems to fit with the cold dark months.
I think I am boring. I don't really do much of anything hobby wise.
Do you collect anything or have a hobby?
