  • Fabric, yarn, children's poetry & rhymes, Cicely Mary Barker Flower Fairy 'stuff' (I think I have everything she ever wrote, plus many prints of her artwork and figurines of my favorite Flower Fairies), dolls.

    I guess I collect pretty much in that order, if you look at the size of each collection; but the fabric and yarn I always intend to use soon after I buy it...but my stash just seems to keep growing. :-\

    My husband and I collect salt & pepper shakers. We started on our honeymoon (a so-called mixed marriage). :-)

  • Roosters- started with rooster pictures for the kitchen and it has exploded now. I get rooster from all my friends and they are so fun as they tell me the story behind the purchase.
