I collect really gaudy picture frames from all the vacations we take. I’m talking about the really colorful index with like huge seashells  suns with sunglasdes and boats glued on them. I think they are so cute haha!

I have a somewhat tacky collection of magnets. It’s become a tradition to buy one everywhere we travel. Our refrigerator is stainless, so they’re all on the side and not in plain view.

I have also started collecting jewlery when I travel abroad-gold from Peru, silver/turquoise from a small village in Bali, garnets from the Czech Republic and (hopefully) some opals this summer in Australia and/or some jade from New Zealand. I wish I’d started this when I went to Amsterdam (Royal Asscher Diamonds are a specialty). Darn! ๐Ÿ™‚

I started collecting pencils when I was a kid.  My first one was from Disneyland when I was 7, and now that’s one item I have to pick up when we travel.  I get one from each state we visit, and depending on what I can find, cities or countries.  I probably have close to 100 now.

We also collect those starbucks mugs from anywhere that carries them.  We did 7 states last summer, and they sure took up a lot of room in our bags lol. 

And books.  Just books I’ve read and love.  I don’t donate them (unless I didn’t like them lol) and we just moved so my books have taken over our spare room closet until we can find a bookshelf.

I keep greeting cards from my friends. I also have some American girl dolls. I also collect games, and some books. I am also trying to collect old photos from my childhood for my scrapbook. I collect school spirit stuff from my previous schools. I would love to collect pencils, more american girl dolls, board games, friendship books, friendship movies, bedding, and maybe floats and gym/pool/beach bags.

I used to keep gfit bags and boxes because I didn’t like throwing perfectly good items away and figured one day I could use them. I didn’t and one day I threw half of them away and still have a lot! Also DH drinks a lot of coke so I collect the codes… Not collect per se, I just forget to enter the codes so they’re there.

Books. Leatherbound, boxed sets, Folio Society etc.

Jewelry. Not just the costume stuff but the real deal also.

Cards that I get for any occassion.

Jewelry & trinket boxes – simple carved ones, tiny crystal-encrusted ones, the pretty ones by Bombay Co and a very large one that I want from Reed & Barton.

General things of interest from around the world or pretty things – matryoshka dolls, gemstones, musical carousels and crystal pieces. Generally, pretty girly things.

Tickets – movies, concerts and the occasional theme park. I came to the U.S. when I was 9 and have every ticket stub since then! I also started collecting shot glasses from different places. Whever I or someone I know is traveling, I get a shot glass from that place.

Shoes, and most recently within the last year, hermit crab shells, I’m obsessed!

We both collect tickets, stubs and other things from when we vacation or visit places. We plan to make a shadow box similiar to this.
