sorry I get just a little excited about my collection!


ANY DAY NOW!

I kept this one large because the signing remains my all time favorite real life meet.... Donzaleigh Abernathy is the daughter of Rev. Ralph Abernathy (Dr King's right hand man during the civil rights movement... Donzaleigh and I had a great talk and then she signed an autograph for me!

Ah, I dig...I think Batgirl and Batwoman are different characters, I think there are a few other random gay characters in the Batman Universe though.

My mom and I used to watch Cagney and Lacey every week when I was little.  It was one of her favorite shows.  Which one is your favorite?  I was always partial to Lacey...not sure why.

Your collection is phenomenal.  So much cool stuff.  It's almost like your place is a museum!

I love Lacey but my loyalties lie with Cagney!...there were three Cagneys but only one real one!  ;)

I also have an autographed TV guide but my apts a bit messy and I couldn't get a good pic of it...

it is like a museum tho! I sort of embrace chaos and really like every inch of wall and shelf covered with stuff!

I blame moving so much....having all my stuff around me is how I feel at home... I have never felt at home here because I have never had "all my stuff" out... its too damn small...you should have seen my last place!

My parents still have some, but their total collection isn't much compared to what I see in this picture. They have 45's and 78's of music mostly from the 1960s.

I thought I had answered but maybe not (Facebook, right?).  I have a Re-issued 12-inch single of RUN-D.M.C.'s "My Adidas"/"Peter Piper" on the Arista label (Originally on Profile Records).  I'd probably open it if I had a 2nd copy.

When I moved in with Carlos, we combined our record collection. He had more than I did-now OUR collection is not as big as yours but we are not too far from it. We did get rid of two boxes-but they weren't really ours-we bought them at an auction. As for ours, Carlos wants to get rid of them but I have a hard time letting go.

Awesome collections everyone! And great thread idea Ash!!

I collect shot glasses.
It started out that I would buy one from every new place (city, state, province, country) I visited, however it took on it's own life. My sister-in-law, sister and husband are constantly picking me up new shot glasses. I have approximately 300 shot glasses - and they are all lined up on the top of my cupboards because I just don't have anywhere else for them!

Here they are:

This is the full collection in one shot:

And these are individual sections so you can see all of the ones behind the front row.

   Cool collection snoz, from what I can see.  My gf has been collecting Barbies for years.  She like the limited edition designer ones - Bob Mackie, Givenchy, Vera Wang, &etc.  She has cool looking Scarlet O'Hara one.  It's cool that she's into this stuff - shows she's lightening-up... ;D

   I had to make like Tim Allen and build her a halfass rack for them.  One she has her eye on lately is a retro Barbie & the Rockers doll.  I get the Entertainment Earth catalog and what a candy store that place is!  So much fun to look through...

Awesome collections everyone! And great thread idea Ash!!

I collect shot glasses.
It started out that I would buy one from every new place (city, state, province, country) I visited, however it took on it's own life. My sister-in-law, sister and husband are constantly picking me up new shot glasses. I have approximately 300 shot glasses - and they are all lined up on the top of my cupboards because I just don't have anywhere else for them!

Here they are:

This is the full collection in one shot:

And these are individual sections so you can see all of the ones behind the front row.

Wow...that is quite a collection, Tam!! :o :o




I'll post pictures of my stuff at some point; I just need to take the pictures. Also, many of the things I collect are stored in boxes (such as marbles), so it would be pretty hard to take a pic of all those...but I suppose opening up the box and taking the pic will suffice.

It would take A LOT to take pics of my entire collection (even though I SHOULD do that for insurance proposes anyway), but I did take a few. They were quicky photos so they are not the best but you can get a gist of what my collection is like-and mind you, this is only a small fraction of what I actually have.


First of all my albums:

http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r92/aandcsattic/112.jpg

Not all albums are full.

Here is a page from my Morgan Silver Dollar album:

A page from my Barber or Liberty Head Quarter album:

Ooh! ooh! I have some coin collections similar to those too!! In fact, I have several U.S. pennies dating back to the early 20th century (before they began putting the Lincoln Memorial on the back), and they are in coin albums similar to those pictured.

Oh my Gosh!!!!  Someone else who collect Snoopy.  I have some shirts and some DVDs and a 1971 Snoopy piggy bank. (OK it's my brother's but he'll never miss it)  I always send Snoopy cards for personal occasions.  By the way, you've inspired me.  It's not childish like some people say.

I have a Peanuts comic hanging in my kitchen that I've had up in various places since I was in high school.  It's just so me and my life.  Linus is playing basketball.  Well, he has a basketball in one hand and an ice cream cone in the other, but then he throws the ice cream cone up toward the the hoop and holds on to the basketball instead.  The last block is him standing there all sad with both the ball and the cone on the ground.  It's so funny and so depressing all at the same time.

I have a couple by my desk at work. One is Peppermint Patty saying 'I think the battery in my head has gone dead'  I then have one with Charlie Brown holding a dish of food next to Snoopy's empty dog house going 'I forgot you are away I made you food , How long are you going to be away?, when will you be back?' and the final frame is of him 'saying 'oh, by the way, why am I talking to you if you are not here?'

The one I love (which I can find references to it on-line but I can't find IT) had Freida holding her cat. Someone walked by and said, "Hmmph." Then Freida says, "People hate cats." Next frame: "People hate people who own cats." Last frame: "People especially hate people who own cats who have natural curly hair." I don't know why but this one just cracked me up.


Every year for many, many years, my dad would ALWAYS get us birthday cards that features the peanut characters (and yes, I still have ALL the ones he sent me). The one that really topped it was when I was in Greece. I think it was my sister who sent it to me. It had Linus on the front wearing a toga and it said, "What do people in Greece do for their birthday?" You open the card and it said, "Slide around a lot. (Try not to think about it too much.)" She was so afraid that everyone was going to send me the same card but she took a chance anyway-and lo & behold, no one else did.  :D ;D ;D

I love Rerun too, especially the strips with him riding in the little chair on the back of his Mum's bicycle. My Mum used to ride me around like that and was just as terrifying a cyclist!  ;D

what a cool thread  8)  and you all have some really cool collections of pigs, records, hats, old coins, shot glasses, posters, Hollywood celebs and Barbies and Snoopy & dragons and plates ..did I miss any? 

here's most of Julie's Beanie Baby collection on a shelf/mantel in her room. she has about 20 more of the more valuable ones in cases
my favorite is Scoop, he's the Pelican in the middle.

Thanks Girl! I used to have a cabinet for them, but I have so many that they were being puked out of the cabinet! ;D And when we moved, the cabinet got broke.



Now you tell me!  I could have bought you some kickass ones for your secret Santa gift. ;D



It's all good Girl! I am sure I don't need anymore! ;D

The monkeys are absolutely adorable!


Tam- Steve collects shot glasses too.  I will have to take a pic of them to show you.  I love the Pooh Bear ones!



Thanks - the Pooh ones are like double shot glasses.
I would love to see Steve's collection! 8)

Not the best photo but I think you can see them all. Yes, that is a refrigerator under there. (Just don't look at all the junk on top). I still have room for a few more.  ;)  There are some repeats but they were freebies.


I noticed one was missing-one of my first ones-I bought as my Declaration of Independence after my first marriage ended. It said, "The marines aren't the only one looking for a few good men."  ;)  I wonder if I put that away after I married Carlos-I just don't remember.

The Christmas ornament was a freebie from some company-I can't remember but it came in the mail years ago. I didn't like it but Carlos added it to the collection and I just left it there. As for the one that looks like an egg-that is actually a rock-and there are several of those in the collection. They were all done by Carlos' dad-who is into lapidary (cutting & polishing rocks/stones). He does quite good work. I have a bunch of jewelry that he has made and Carlos has some belt buckles/bolo ties etc. Everyone collects rocks for him. (Gives new meaning of the line, "I got a rock".  :D ;D ;D ) One time, Carlos' sister was traveling and brought him back some rocks. She was picked to have her suitcase gone through and when the guy opened her suitcase, there were a bunch of rocks. She said, "Yes, those are rocks." The guy said, "To each his own." And when he was visiting here, he mailed back a box of rocks to L.A. (when he was living there). We all laugh about him and his rocks, but yet we all admire his work.

At first I wondered how a pic of MY fridge got on here!? Then I realized you can see some white on the door, so it can't be mine. ;)  I'm glad I'm not the only one who does this!

Whenever I travel, I always look for a fridge magnet- I have pics of Matthew and his goofy friends, along with some of his artwork on it as well.  One thing I collect is anything clownfish, so I have a few of those magnets on it too-people always ask me "Where's the handle?" when they see it for the first time.  ;D

I heard the best places to dig for antique/vintage bottles are where outhouses used to be.  :o :o :o



BTW, great photos.

Yeah pretty much. Basically they are rubbish and that tends to be where people buried their rubbish. Mind you by the time you go to dig whatever unsavoury things that there might have been have long broken down into compost!

I used to go bottle digging so I have 3 packing crates full of vintage bottles, mostly medicine bottles but they are at my parents house in the shed at the moment.




I have been on a couple of jobs(construction) where they were digging down and have found quite a few bottles.  I have some from the 1850s, but I know some guys who found clay ones from the 1700s. It is fun catching a glimmer then digging them out.  I only save the ones I found myself.  :)

One of the things I collect are mannequin heads. It might seem creepy and strange to some, but it's actually a lot of fun to collect. Mannequin heads have different hair types and colors just like people:straight, curly, wavy, ethnic...Different hair lengths, short, long, medium hair.

Here is my collection of only five(one is not pictured). They are very hard to find and expensive! I really want the ones with the long necks. They even have names. From the left they are: Courtney, Destiny, Tiffany, Angel, and the one not pictured is Kyle...yes it's a guy mannequin head with a beard! hehe.

Thanks, I have 9,500 of them (approximately) at the moment. And it's taken me 30+ years to collect 'em.

Maybe someday I'll take a picture of one (or more) of the albums open, so you can see some of the cards themselves.
