Default Collecting?

Lea's on Rae's thread about her mugs got me thinking... Do you collect anything (other than digital supplies)? If so, show us pictures!!

I'm really not a collector. I have odds & ends of silly things that I enjoy, but nothing that I would say is a collection. Although, when I was paper scrapping, I sure had quite a paper and sticker collection! LOL!




My DH collects vintage Hot Wheels, and skateboard decks.

that scrap room


I love how D has his decks hanging!! That's so cool!!

Collecting . . . . .I'm not sure if I collect anything outside of digi. I'll have to ask my kiddos.

I do have Young Living, but that's because I use them like I would medicine. So I don't really see that as collecting.

Oooh!!! We do have a magnet board of all of the places we've visited. It's more a conversation starter when people come in the home and when the kids want to talk about a previous place we've visited. They'll show us the magnet or we'll search for where they are thinking but can't remember the name. It's fun and we love them. But we don't really collect unless we've been there, so it's not something that I'll order off Etsy if we've never been there.

Oh don't even get me started on my paper card making supplies...

I do collect mugs- kinda just started on the starbucks sereis, and my family likes to buy me mugs (the wife one & the awesome ones from last Mother's day!)


We also collect W's- one was our wedding cake topper!


And... I bake a lot of cupcakes, and sorta have a sprinkle addiction... BUT I do use them frequently... I just will never run out! lol!


Hubby for christmas got me a sprinkle of the month box (I get 3 new ones every month!) #enabler

My ex used to collect Hot Wheels in the boxes... sadly, when he died, I'm pretty sure they were given to Goodwill by his wife.

OMG Amie... those sprinkles! That's awesome!

Love the W's too... very creative.

Not sure I really collect anything other than scrapbook stuff and craft supplies.... although I do have a pretty good sized snowman collection (that I need to put away lol).

That's so cool! I love all your collections! I can just pretend I have collections by just living through you. (does this sentence even make sense??)

Like I said in the other post, I don't collect much because I have an addictive personality. I don't let myself go there.

I'm addicted to desserts! lol but I don't keep them around long enough to show haha

I used to collect Lularoe clothing but don't wear them anymore.

We have a magnet from each of the States/country we have visited. Everything is in boxes right now since we are moving so I can't show anything.

I collect kitchen appliances?? lol jam maker, ice cream maker. instant pot, crock pot, stand in mixer, vitamix, mandoline, graters, mashed potato mill, George foreman...

doTERRA essential oils, but I stopped buying because I don't use them as often as I should.

Tammy I can only imagine how much money you had in that paper and sticker supply!!! Love your organization.

Amie love your sprinkles. Cupcakes. Mmmmm. I've been dieting too long!!

I collect nothing! And have no desire to. I'd love to purge more! Scrapbooks?! :P All the talk of mugs has me really wanting some pretty mugs. To use, not to collect. We have quite a mismatch collection and a few pretty ones that match sounds really nice about now.

Tammy! What a wonderful paper collection - and so stinking organized~! I'd love to have a nice big craft area!!

Amie - Love (!) the W's and your cookie baking goodies are awesome!!

Lori - what a great snowman collection! I collected them several years ago.

Hubby likes to collect vintage Pyrex bowls - and I pick up odds and ends at flea markets that intrigue me (and add them to the stuff that my parents gave to me before they passed away - most everything was already vintage before they gave it to me - I doubt anything is worth $$, but it makes my heart happy to have it)


Toys … I guess you can say I collect toys! I don't like a lot of clutter - so the grandkid's play-place is in our rec room, in our finished basement … if all of their toys were upstairs I'd be having an anxiety attack - lol! The area works great though - because if I'm super tired when they leave, it's okay that I don't pick up the mess until I've rested up and it doesn't bother me! I have everything organized - lol, it's my way of dealing with so much "stuff"! (This is just one area of the basement that is their domain! In another area we have a playset with a slide and a full size tent set up for them to play in!)


I guess you could say I collect positive affirmations signs (this is my little planner area in my craft room)

When I was a kid we did a lot of road trips. My parents didn't want to buy us expensive souvenirs at every stop, so the deal was that they'd buy us postcards along the way and then 1 souvenir at our destination. By the time I was about 8 I started saving the postcards, and I've added to the collection at every new destination I've been to since then.

What a fun thread, I love to see what everyone collects. Aside from the mugs I don't really collect anything anymore. I used to hunt garage and estate sales for old tupperware but stopped doing that yrs ago and gave a lot of it away to the kids but kept enough to keep me going (forever). I still think tupperware is some of the best made stuff out there.

I also sorta collect pens, fine point. I don't keep a large stash but am always looking at supply stores and have a few packs on hand. I also like to collect different colored sharpies/highlighters.

I have a collection of spun glass. Maybe around 20 pieces -- some of them were special gifts (birthday or anniversary presents) and some was picked up in a flea market.

I have collected a number of things over the years.

I'll have to take pictures later, but right now the things I'm still collecting are "state" magnets for any new state we go to. I usually get a magnet for any new place we go as well.

And a few years ago, I started getting a Christmas ornament that represented our family vacation for that year.

It was an amazing craft room. It will be nice to have one again, even though the only crafting I do now is digi

That's a fun collection! It keeps those places at the forefront of the kids' minds!!

Jill, your Pyrex is beautiful! I love vintage kitchen odds & ends. I have canisters from my grandparents that will be on our counter as soon as I find them.
That play area is amazing!!! I'll bet your grandkids love it!

That sounds lovely! How do you display your collection? Is it all in one spot, or around the house?

Collections... I have had a few different ones throughout the years, but now, with 6 kids and about 1000 sqft house; most of my collections now are dust, dirty laundry, and stray socks.
Aside from those things, my current collections include
*Pioneer Woman Cookbooks and kitchen stuff
*Guns
*Fabric, craft supplies and partially completed projects (which I have to keep contained into a small section of the laundry room)
*Cameras (which are boxed up in the shed until we get a bigger house)
*Coffee Mugs (this one is paired WAY down now, but before I shared a house with anyone other than my own kiddos it was a thing)

I used to have a collection of John Deere Tractors (everything from mini toys to dishes) and farm animals.

I can't wait to see pics of your collections!
Do you have all of your state magnets on the fridge?
I love Christmas ornaments as souvenirs. It's so fun to unwrap them and reminisce as we decorate the tree.

Oh my goodness! That's so funny, Jo. My hubs used to have them all over the house. Now that he has his office set up, they will be relegated to that space

I had such a hard time resisting toys when our kids were young.

My daughter had some Polly Pockets when she was younger. She loved them. I kept one for her in her memorabilia box.

*Coffee Mugs (this one is paired WAY down now, but before I shared a house with anyone other than my own kiddos it was a thing)

I used to have a collection of John Deere Tractors (everything from mini toys to dishes) and farm animals.
Oh wow, Manda! Those are quite the collections! I hope you have room to really display them someday!

I always say I don't collect anything because my mom has TONS of "collections" and I'm an only child, so one day all of those....will be mine. Salt & pepper shakers (which I think are no longer an 'active' collection & are packed up in the attic?), pretty dishes, teapots, snowmen... yikes. When my cousins say "I love this snowman platter!" I tell them, "you can have it someday, but it will come as a set with all the other snowmen!"

I use to collect moose figurines. Actually, I didn't collect them, I just got a bunch as gifts all the time & didn't get rid of them. My favorite animal is a moose--even though I've never seen one IRL...but that will change as we're moving to ALASKA in July!!!!!-- and the problem when anyone knows you have a favorite anything is that you end up with a bunch of them. My moose items are all packed in boxes somewhere. They're cute, but I would need a "Northwoods lodge" themed home to display them, haha.

I do collect Christmas ornaments: we get the Hallmark decade series every year plus one on vacations (or keychains when ornaments are un-findable). I often pick up a familiar book in a foreign language when traveling too.

DH collects money from different places we live & visit. He also 'inherited' a bag of coins his dad collected.

Of course I have lots of fabric, yarn & craft supplies, but I don't consider those collections. They're just things that are waiting to serve their purpose

I collect pens (I am a huge pen hoader esp now that I have discovered cute Korean pens...oh my, I order way too many of those) and I collect Funko Pops. I don't have a good way of displaying those yet so no photo and I do not buy Funko Pops every single week but when I am in a store where they sell them, I always have to buy one

OMG!!! LOVE the craft room!! All that pretty paper.....sigh......

Hubby likes to collect vintage Pyrex bowls - and I pick up odds and ends at flea markets that intrigue me (and add them to the stuff that my parents gave to me before they passed away - most everything was already vintage before they gave it to me - I doubt anything is worth $$, but it makes my heart happy to have it)


Toys I guess you can say I collect toys! I don't like a lot of clutter - so the grandkid's play-place is in our rec room, in our finished basement if all of their toys were upstairs I'd be having an anxiety attack - lol! The area works great though - because if I'm super tired when they leave, it's okay that I don't pick up the mess until I've rested up and it doesn't bother me! I have everything organized - lol, it's my way of dealing with so much "stuff"! (This is just one area of the basement that is their domain! In another area we have a playset with a slide and a full size tent set up for them to play in!)


I guess you could say I collect positive affirmations signs (this is my little planner area in my craft room)

LOVE LOVE LOVE the vintage Little Peoples!!! I have mine, including that A frame house I see in your pic, in the basement in a box. I have all of my own children's Little Peoples! But they get played with every day by my littles!

Does anyone remember Polly Pockets? I used to have a huge collection (like 50+) of them. Gave them away when I was a teenager... I would be rich now if I still had them!! I recently got their 30th-anniversary one. It's cute as ever. <3


My girls were very into Polly Pockets!!! I think we may still have most of them in the attic!!

If you ask my hubby I collect everything....

I have Disney plates, Precious Moments, toys, books....


I used to have two Curios, but cramed then into one last year to have more space in the living room.


This is maybe 1/3-1/2 of my books.

And these Little Peoples were my kiddies and now my daycare littles use them. I had my hubby make me a shelf just for them.

I have been waiting to clean out some toys and supplies, I just don’t need them all. But my oldest graduates this May with a degree to teach so I’m saving them for her.....

Polly Pockets! Yes! I had 3! lol my girls actually snagged one from my parents' house last time we went on vacation. I found it in our suitcase. They didn't tell anyone. haha

Replace "moose" with "dolphin" and that's me!

I used to collect craft supplies (it's a different hobby than using them!)

My dad collected coins and stamps. I can't say I collect, because I'm not organized, but I hoard foreign coins and euro coins from different countries (each country of the European Union issues its own coins, but they are accepted in all countries). It's my favorite collection, because, you know, they are still cash, I don't feel like I've thrown my money on something that won't be of any worth in a few years.

Our household seems to collect books and boardgames. But since we moved (even though it's been over a year!) we aren't fully organized and I am NOT taking a picture of them. lol Too many are in the messy basement.

Y'all have some pretty collections, though!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE the 50 States Alaska kit - those Northern lights journal cards and the colors of this kit! I almost bought it even though I've never been to Alaska and have no plans to go! And the Lumberjack Bash kit! PERFECT for your moose collection and lodge theme! Think of all the new scrapping goodies you'll get to use! I'm excited for you!! See, aren't these great?!

Alaska!!! Yay!! I loved Alaska when my daughter and I visited. Hubs & I have talked about taking a road trip up to Alaska.

How fun to be in a place where you can see your favorite animal

I'd love to see a picture of your pen collection, Biancka!! I love Funko Pops, but don't want to get started down that path. LOL! I have 2. I'm calling it quits with those

Do you have a place to display your dolphins, Cindy?

My Grandpa collected stamps. He started me on it when I was young, but I didn't continue.

Books and boardgames are good things to collect, Charlene! It's hard to get things organized after a move! You'll get it in order someday For now, just enjoy!!

I love to find and collect shells! The best thing, it's pretty much free aside from the occasional paid beach access. I have an Instagram page where I share my obsession: https://www.instagram.com/brookshells/?hl=en



I also collect card & board games and BOOKS. Lots of books.

Besides digi kits I'm not much of a collector. Unless you count these pounds I'm trying to get rid of
