Currently, I don’t really collect much. Although, I am most certainly a pack rat. But I think a collection has to be more than stuff you don’t want to throw away. It has to be on purpose, don’t you think? Anyway, I do have about 20 or so shot glasses that I have picked up during my travels. And I have nearly every single Glamour magazine for the past four years. As well as an overflowing jewelry box and tons of strands of necklaces hanging on my wall. Oh, and debt. Seems that’s easy to collect!
I want to start a real collection though. Something legit. I would love to collect more old books, like the ones I bought awhile back. I also have a thing for figurines, particularly ones of little birdies and owls. Though, I won’t say no to a couple of friendly squirrels or a big-eared deer.
What do you think? A little too grandma-ish? A collection like that could potentially turn my house into a pile of knick-knacks. At the same time, I quite like the idea of a lovely little bird perched on my bookshelf or a pair of critters by the keyboard on my desk.
Full disclosure: I bought the bird. And the owl. Sign me up for Shopaholics Anonymous.
P.S. For those of you wondering where I got the Maple Ginger Snap gelato, I just picked it up at my local Vons. I am pretty sure you can get it at most grocery stores if you are dying to try it!
P.S.S. I had Chinese food Friday night—yum!—and this was my fortune: “You have a strong instinct to take care of the people you love.” Not exactly a “fortune” but one for the “collection," I'd say!
