    I used to collect : clocks, vintage cut glass, Ideal Suzy Walker dolls, Mary Englebreit objects, vintage fabric and vintage quilts.

    Now: I am cleaning house and much of it is going to thrift stores or selling it.

    I tried to tell my daughter when she was getting massive amounts of things to decorate with that there will be a day when she will load it all up and give it away. She's not there yet but we'll see!

    I collect pitchers (mostly ball kind), & feed sacks fabric.
    I also collect antique oval picture frames-the small metal ones-usually brown color.

    I want to amend my answer:
    Watering cans and old toys with dust on them
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    Well I'm working hard to get rid of the fat I've collected, and I collect Nativity sets and pieces.

    Very interesting what other collect. I love to collect gemstones, as isaid before. I just collected more morganite, (earrings 7.80 cts) and some more morganite earrings again (8.20 cts.)
    It's addicting. I'm going on a cruise, so i'll get more sand for my collection.

    I need sand from the Great Wall of China and Stonehenge next.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    OMG....OK, I collect kaleidoscopes, Lizzy High dolls, Mister Magoo stuff, and sewing machines. My DH collects vintage schwinn bicycles, shot glasses, and vintage tin toys. I think that's it.....

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Doesn't anyone collect Cherished Teddies? I do not collect them, but somehow have acquired a bunch of them! I would be happy to part with them

    I love vintage pyrex. Here's my collection (I've added some since but not much-just some cups and a creamer).

    Oh how blessed I am. I have too much fat, shelves of cook books, tubs of fabric,3 generation dust bunnies, but I love to collect angels and alabaster eggs. What I would like to collect most is at least 40 winks every afternoon !!!!!
