-Stuffed animals. Hush.
-Dice (not the plain ones)
-Coins

The only coins I collect are the state quarters that have been coming out each year. My coin map is almost full! Mommy bought it for me. =3

I also collect:

Fortunes from fortune cookies
wine corks
clocks

I used to collect pop tops from soda cans in 6th grade. I'd put them on key rings and hang them from my book bag and stuff. I had thousands. XD Don't remember what I ever did with them.
Today, Friday, October 10, 2009, is my last day on RolePlayGateway.com.
Everyone give me lots of love, because I shall be handing lots out. <3

I don't collect anything in particular, I just have a habit of keeping random items in boxes under my bed (mostly broken things that hold some kind of importance).

One of my Aunts collects clocks, though. Y'know, really tacky ones? Like novelty ones shaped to look like teapots or whatever. It really makes me laugh how excited she gets over them. She knows they're ugly, but she loves 'em.

One of my Grans collects little fairy statues...

But yeah, I seem to just collect junk
Oh! And books. I've run out of shelves to put them on, so they're in little stacks on the floor in my room. Doesn't help too much with trying to sell the house, but ah well, mum will get over it.

I don't collect tacky clocks. =/ Just pretty ones. I especially love ones that look really old. I have this HUGE thing for antiques, and love anything that looks like it's 100 years old or something.

I also collect wrought iron stuff as well, like big iron crosses or wall hangings that are supposed to be outside on a brick wall in a garden or something. I do all I can to try and make the inside of my home feel like a little utopia, and part of that to me is making it feel like a relaxing garden, with a fountain, wrought iron decorations, and greenery everywhere.

Hats from foreign countries.
My collection includes:
An army hat from Isreal
A headband from Japan
A Rastafarian cap from Belize
A Russian communist-party hat from Russia
A Fedora and a Bandolier's hat from Italy
A Fez from Greece.

And I haven't even left the country... :(

OH! I am collecting the tops off of soda cans Mel! XD I have them on a ring on my car keys, although it is getting really hard to fit in my pocket now....meh. I am collecting the ones off of glass soda bottled though the colorful ones. : P

I also collect toy cars (hope to collect real ones later on), coins (Mostly just have coins from other countries not old ones. I have some from Iraq, Afghanistan, Japan, China, Australia, Germany, England, Canada, Singapore, Africa, Mexico, and Russia.), the fifty state quarters, and stamps (got tons of these most of them from my uncle).

I collect dust! =D

... Not really.

I like coins... My uncle's in the army so I hit him up for some money from the countries he gets to visit.

I also have a wide variety of animal figures. My favorite right now is the platypus. ^-^

I used to collect Pokemon cards too, until I decided it was a waste of money. XD

Other than that, I horde random stuff... >.>;;
Why, yes! I am insulting your intelligence, but if you were actually intelligent, you wouldn't be insulted, would you?

I don't really collect much of anything, really. My brother, who lives in the same house as me, collects soda cans. He payed twenty dollars for a Mountain Dew can with a picture of Yoda on it via the internet. <.<

I used to collect and trade Pokemon and Digimon cards when I was a kid. Ah, those were the days... xD It was so much fun. I miss that.

I'm too old to collect anything haha. (I sound like I'm 40!) I really don't have money to waste on collecting anything. I thought about collecting the caps to different alcohol bottles, but that was only a good idea after I had been drinking. LOL I don't know where I'd put them or why I would even need to keep them. So, I don't. :P

I LOVE the photographs on Jones Soda bottles. I wish I had room to collect them all. Although, I suppose I could just tear the picture part off.

I also love that you collect photographs. It's fun flipping through shoe boxes of old pictures and post cards in antique stores. I just read a book from the library where a guy commissioned ten of his artist friends to make a comic out of a random old post card he gave them. (Postcards: True Stories that Never Happened )It was amazing. He got the idea just from flipping through a ox of old post cards in an antique shop. It's inspired me to do something similar. Old photographs can lead to inspiration because your mind tries to wrap a story around what is going on in the picture.

`Candles

CLOCKS TOO, I forgot. But I always lose them because I carry them around with me. But I prefer the ridiculous or tacky variety. Anything I can carry around with me without fear of breaking something valuable. A watch would not do either. I would lose that quicker than a a Kawaii Shojo's virginity at a Kthulu reunion party.

In three thousand years, archaologists will dig up the remains of the Rogue Doll's home and assume it not to be a dwelling, but a place where the people of Ancient Idaho kept all their collective treasures secret from outsiders.

Or they'll assume it's a shrine. First rule of archaology: if you don't know what a building is, it's probably a shrine.

*gigglefits @ Alchimist*

Well. It is a shrine. A shrine to the many dead hobbies that I have been collecting over the years. And besides, I live in a manufactured home of plasticky goodness. It wont survive three thousand years! My precious treasures shall never be shared with the future children......

....I contemplated putting it in a time capsule then...but a packrat without her junk? Blaspheme!
