OT - What do you collect?
Besides yarn, patterns and needles, what do you collect?

A certain china pattern? Clocks? Trading cards? Anything? Or lot's of things?

edit: Sorry, I forgot to put OT in the subject line

i collect teacups, dolls, and BOOKS. it's kind of funny, though. the first two were meant to be collections, but i haven't added to them in a very long time (besides the adorable bagpiping geppeddo doll i got for christmas last year). they are also both collections that started and continue to grow through gifts from other people. the books have just kind of accumulated on their own. if you've ever wandered through the cheap books at barnes & noble you understand how that can happen!

I don't like clutter, and I abhor dusting, so I don't collect knick knack-type things. I collected bears when I was a teenager, but gave all those away when I got married. I guess all I really "collect" is yarn and knitting needles! I have lots of books, but that's just because I enjoy reading. I have quite a few sets of dishes, but that's not by choice. My great-grandmother gave me some china. My grandmother gave me some china. My mother collects sets of dishes, and she keeps buying me sets, as if I share the same love for dishes. (I don't.)

Ink stamps from US National Historic sites that I visit.

Each site has it's own ink stamp with an adjustable date and you stamp the pages in your Passport book.

The best part is that it's small and portable!

My only real collection is a Christmas Village. They sold the original sets and pieces at Target. Now I have to get the pieces from Ebay. I've quit buying them though. I wouldn't have enough room to set up the town if I bought any more.

Oh, and my used college book collection is growing. They don't seem to sell as quickly as I have to buy them.

I have somehow awakened a dormant hereditary dish collecting gland I must have gotten from my mother. I have begun collecting teacups and other random dishes/glassware of a tea time/dessert type of theme. I have also collected dolphin related things, several of them being fancy franklin mint plates and lenox crystal "sculpture" type items. I also have a collection of Orange Striped Kitty things...stuffed animals, little figurines, a couple ornaments...because my Binky is an orange kitty!

ETA...almost forgot, State Quarters too
