This is a _really_ good question on My Place & Yours this week… I used to collect all sorts of stuff… autographs (mainly of b-grade celebrities), programs from plays/musicals/ballets/etc, unicorn trinkets, nail polish, posters of John Stamos, Dean Cain and David Dixon

Um, yeah. Some embarrassing stuff.

Nowadays I’m either too lazy or too much of a tightarse to collect anything in particular. We live in a smallish place and I live with a geek who needs to be able to store his spare motherboards, heat sinks, RAM and other things that I hate having lying around (until my PC dies and suddenly I’m incredibly grateful).

So apart from the usual collection of dust bunnies, washing up, weeds, furballs and cobwebs, I had a look around the house to see what was obvious in the collection stakes:

Threadless t-shirts –  Oh yes. I have a whole drawer dedicated to them, but now the drawer is overflowing and won’t close properly:

(There’s Bear in the corner of that shot, wondering if he can sleep in the Threadless drawer tonight)

Cupcake-baking supplies – kitchen storage is minimal at our place, so I have a giganto plastic tub to store everything:

To be fair, anything in the “cupcake” category is fair game. I have t-shirts, tea towels, aprons, tea cups, mugs, calendars, jewellery, cookbooks and heaps of other cupcake  paraphernalia   that I’ve probably forgotten right now. I don’t buy as much as I used to; mainly so that friends and family have a chance of buying me birthday/Christmas presents that I don’t already have ;)

I would LOVE to collect beautiful framed photos, blown up and hung on our walls. Maybe one day… :)
