Oh these are beautiful!! I collect bells from different places, beach, museums, etc. I have two bells from my honeymoon that I adore. One is from Blowing Rock, NC ( look up the story of Blowing Rock, very romantic) and the NC Aquarium. Those remind me of my sweet husband and how we met each other :) Hope you have a great weekend!!

there is not space for "stuff" in my life....my collections are full of inspiration and ideas - places i want to go, things i want to make and do....my head is swirling full of them. so full i really might have to consider therapy ;) but for now i just keep making my lists for someday....

Post Cards! I love to collect them. I get them when we go places and I ask friends to send them when they go places. They don't take up a lot of room and I still have a memory of our adventures.

I have been loving Mara's work for a while now. I'd love to win!

I am an organizing junkie, so I collect containers of all shapes and sizes: baskets for my daughter's toys, cute plastic boxes for my makeup and hair ties, photo boxes, and the like. I have to stay away from the Container Store because I can buy everything there :)

fairlytypical said...

I collect stationary, greeting cards, and stickers!! I have been doing this for quite some time yet the number of handwritten notes/cards/letters I give to people are seriously lacking. Once of my 2010/life goal is to hand write more greetings/messages to those I love.

katie said...

beautiful!!

umm... I like to collect clothes and shoes... does that count??

Philippa said...

What a dreamy gift! I'd love to hand my husband something this beautiful. Sadly I broke my right hand in january and can't write a thing at the moment! I was planning on signing my sweet valentines with a thumb print, but this wouldbe divine!

i collect words. anytime i run into a good word, i jot it down and later stash it away in my 'good words' file.

is that crazy?

Hannah said...

I collect purses. On my wedding day, I owned over 70. I've widdled my collection down to 15. My husband is much happier now. ;)

deidra said...

So pretty! I don't know if I collect any one thing, but it sure seems that I collect lots of "stuff" by the sight of my house. If only my collection was lovely, sentimental or valuable. Looks like it's time to de-junk!

Ann Marie said...

oh, how calligraphy melts my heart!!

whit said...

Sarah said...

I collect earrings and I'm a stationery junkie. I love stamps and wax seals and glass pens... all of it.

Raquel said...

It's silly but I collect thimbles from the places I visit - being a sewer I felt it an appropriate token to remind me of a fun vacation.

Jen said...

Lately, I seem to collect projects in process more than anything, but I'm always on the lookout for inspirational quotes, as well.

Christen Krumm said...

Sarah said...

these are my style! love them.

iamrobyn said...

Lovely! What a great prize to win...

Kari said...

When I was little, I collect thimbles. And then, after a year or so, I got over it. (I was fickle--so what else is new.) But everyone continued to buy me thimbles from their various travels and I had a growing collection of these things that I didn't care about at all. When my grandmother passed away, I was given her collection as well, and now I've got a serious stash. Perhaps someday I'll have to find a way to display them in my own style--still looking.

In the mean time, I collect fabric. Sometimes I sew with it, but most of the time I just iron it and pet it and wonder what kind of a project could be worthy of such lovely threads. Hmmm . . . also a bad collection--must get over that.

Missy knits said...

I love to collect dishware--casserold dishes, bowls, bakers...retro or rustic...I have a real problem in a small kitchen!!

I collect post cards: I buy one for each place we visit when we travel, I picked them from stores and restaurants, but I love much more getting them in the mail from friends far away! I hang them in a curtain rail by my computer so I look at them for inspiration

I don't really collect anything, put have alot of the same kind of thing if you know what I mean. I hoard fabric and scrapbooking supplies like it is going out of fashion.
I just adore the giveaway, I would get my daughters name on it and send her a letter. Okay is is only 17 months and cannot read but I want to tell her all about life now and how much she is loved so she can read it when she is older.
