Some of us are just plain 'packrats'. I thought I was bad until I married hubby. He claims to be very neat and tidy and usually is BUT...some of the goofy stuff he has neatly filed away is just a bit more than packratting. Things like notes he took in college...over 40 years ago! Colored paper from the same generation??? But it's filed under "Colored Paper". Even empty folders from back in school times. OK, I have my 'things' too but....lol
Now, if you are truly a collector of something specific then that's fine with me.... well, within reason...lol No collecting boyfriends/girlfriends.
I think most of us have collected something in our lifetime. Have you ever had a collection of some kind? If so, what was it? I have always loved stuffed animals. As a kid I didn't care for dolls but I did love stuffed animals. As I got older and began a family that is one gift I loved to receive...it still is... good quality stuffed animals. I love the Gund brand. Now hubby and I collect penguins and yes, many of them are stuffies. I am trying to collect smaller and smaller ones due to space issues but then last Christmas when hubby and I were shopping at Costco...there she was! A HUGE, darling stuffed penguin. Her eyes kept following us and I know she whispered hubby's name because he went right for her. And being at Costco she was a great price. Yep, she's about
3 feet behind where I'm sitting right now and very content, I must add.
What do/did you collect?
