    I collect almost everthing i can get my hands on. Rocks, Plants, Wrapping paper, Plants, dead bugs and a bunch more. I just love collecting things. As a child, my mohter couldn't let me take the paper trash out because if she did that, she would find half of the stuff inside of my bedroom. But hey, that cardbord box looked usefull.

    I collect a few things, one of them is rose bushes. So that`s a summer collection. My favorite is a 200 year old white rosebush, I don`t know exactly how old it is but I know for sure it`s at least 200 years old.

    I collect dog figurines. I’ve posted some pictures of some of them.
    My newest friend, Mr. Lemon Pointer arrived today. He is an antique and it’s really hard to find Pointer figures in this coat color.

    I’ve got music boxes with dogs on them. It actually took me twenty years to get a music box with a ballerina on it as dancing was the only common theme that I didn’t have in my collection. The mask I bought back in November was also a nice find as they aren’t very common and seem to have come from this studio in California that closed shop long ago. And I got two musical teapots within the past two years and now I need to get a musical cup that can be used to complete that theme.

    One thing I’ve seen a few times on eBay but could never afford that I’d like to get is a musical perfume bottle with an atomizer attached to it.

    I could not be more impressed. :) That`s a lot. I collect some plants and have a lot of that stuff too. But I don`t have rare tropical fruit trees. Just apple and plum.

    That is so interesting! I recently discovered, via YouTube, the wonderful world of cold hardy tropical fruit trees and other rare fruits. I am not a gardner but I would love to have some growing on my property. (Hypothetical property as we don't yet own any land or even have a house)
