What interesting items are you collecting right now

I recently started to collect the Lolita martini glasses.

I got 2 for birthdays and bought one for myself.



'

I have 'Shopaholic', 'Poker-tini', and 'Bad Kitty'.

Each one is hand painted with a theme and they are great quality and a perfect size. Also on the bottom of each glass is a different recipe for a drink.

I normally dont 'collect' stuff because after a while I start to feel like its just clutter that I dont need.

Kinda boring, I guess; but I collect pieces of bluebird china, from the early 1900s. My grandmother gave me the last plate she had from the set she started housekeeping with when she got married in 1912. Over the years, I've gotten quite a bit of it; but I'm still on the lookout for it. It is white with chubby bluebirds with pink bellies, and pink blossoms.

Cats (and vet bills ) for me lately. And I don't even have to leave the house to get them -- they come to me! I swear there is a cat message board out there with a list of all the suckers on it. My name must be stickied right to the top.

A more normal collection is the Steve Kilbey paintings I have. I just bought a new one a couple weeks ago. At last count I have somewhere around 50-55 originals.

Shot glasses. Pretty unoriginal, but I like my collection.

My camera batteries are dead.

I have shot glasses from Dublin, Hawaii (with my name in Hawaiian), Minnesota, Detroit, Seattle, Vancouver, St. Petersburg Russia, Okanogan Valley, London, 2 from The Keg restaurant ( ) and a bunch of plain ones.

A few of them are quite cheesy, but I use the Dublin one the most.

Not really... there's a bunch of magazines that I buy each year, like the Aussie F1 GP program and the AFL GRand Final record. I'd say CDs and DVDs, but they're not really a collection I don't think...

I have a collection of all the Beatles albums on vinyl, each bought by myself, my hubby, or my parents at the time they were originally released, including their very 1st, but of course that's an old collection now. These days I collect U2 vinyl and posters, and magazines.

Those martini glasses are very cool, and those kitties are so cute.

Oh yeah, I also collect those floaty pens, I have them from all over the place, places I've been, and places friends and family have been and have brought them back for me.

i collect dvds. and books. i dont have a picture because the books are stored in numerous places, and the dvds are on a large cube unit, and you all know what dvd spines look like. besides, i have a list on here anyway.

my daughter collects snow globes though. she's more interesting than me.

Candles. I love candles but I use them as I go. I don't like to hoard them. Beautiful things are to be used.



This is my favourite candle. The candle gel is made from rose water and has roses susspended in the gel. When it burns it smells like Turkish Delight



My candle snuffer . Its an Art Nouveau rip off. I Art Nouveau. Also, on the left, is a teacup from my favourite set. The cup is designed like a cupped leaf, as is the saucer, as is the teapot.
