But, other than these 'usual suspects', I have the tendency to get attracted to certain items when I see them too. I'm always looking at and purchasing candles, for example. I love buying them in different shapes, sizes and scents. I even enjoy looking at handcrafted candles from different countries that I visit.
Teapots, for some reason, is another object that I find interesting. I'm not sure if my mom influenced me on this one. But, I definitely love the look of them. I'd be buying more teapots if I could. At this time, though, I only have half a dozen or so in my collection. The photo of the teapot you see here is from a trip to Malaysia. I have a teapot set from Thailand. And, I have a couple of others. But, I somehow haven't bought any lately.
Other things I'd love to collect more of, but don't have the money or space for include: watering cans, boxes, baskets, bottles, stationery...
I also used to collect stamps. I started when I was about 10. But, I somehow lost my drive for this over the last few years. Perhaps, the fact that I haven't really been in to snail mail letter writing like I used to be may have something to do with this loss.
What about you? Do you have a collection? If you do, what do you like collecting? If you don't have a collection yet, what would you be interested in collecting?
