Follow Friday: Non-Bookish Collectors Items
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
Do you have any fun collections (other than books)? - Suggested by Peace Love Books
I think I have three that qualify, though two haven't been true for a while.
1) Back when I used to travel more, I was the kind of person that collected shot glasses, which is funny because I don't drink. At all. I just kind of thought they were cute. (Hehe.) As you can see, I have quite a few, but I haven't done much traveling the last few years, so I haven't collected them in a while.
2) Growing up, one thing my mom always gave us girls for Christmas was a porcelain doll. I got one every year for most of my childhood, so I have TONS of them. I've started re-gifting them to my niece, and I haven't received one in many years, now, but I definitely have a collection of them.
3) My family has always been big on going to the movies, so a few years ago, I started collecting movie stubs. They aren't worth anything, and many have faded so much that you can no longer read the ink to see which film they're from, but I have several large backs of them (like hundreds of movie stubs) and I'm kind of proud because it's not something most people would think of collecting. I'm just a nerd that way. :D
So, what do you collect besides books?
