    I Collected Rocks...kinda Boring

    My dad is a geologist and he's traveled all over the world for work.  When I was a kid he would always bring back a different type of rock or stone (since he's interested in them) and I built up a pretty large collection.  I know it's kinda boring, but they have so much...

    Semi-pointless

    Clowns. It was only a pointless collection until I realized my mom was scared of them... Then it became a Super Awesome Collection that I displayed in every corner of my room.

    My Shoes and My Underwear

    I can really only wear one pair of knickers a time, one bra at a time, one pretty lacey slip at a time. I can really only wear pair of shoes or trainers at a time. Yet I own far too many of each of those items. I could go for months without wearing the same pair of shoes...

    Bones

    I collect bones. Mostly skulls. I only have them of animals though. I not only collect these babies, but I use them for my personal art. Once they are cleaned and painted white I like to carve designs into them. Like imprinting tattoos. I then paint into the carvings...

    Cards Anyone?

    Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon cards galore!  :D I got rid of my Pokemon cards a few years ago - I gave them to the daughter of one of my mom's friends.  But I still have so many Yu-Gi-Oh cards.  Maybe one day they can be the family "heirloom", haha  X]

    Rubik's Cubes?

    Yes, indeed, I collect tons and tons of different colors, shapes, and sizes of rubik's cubes. It's my own addiction, I have always liked puzzles.

    There Is No Such Thing As A Pointless Collection

    It just depends on the context under which you think of this collection... In the words of the original movie Willy Wonka, Gene Wilder, ahem ... "A little nonsense now and thennnn Is cherished by the wisest men"

    Fancy Soap!

    When I was around 8 years old I developed an interest in fancy soaps! You know the ones, elaborate packaging, smells like it belongs in grandma's bathroom. My favourite one was a peony scented egg shaped soap that had flowers engraved on it. I had around 50 soaps just sitting on...

    One In Particular

    I used to collect Porcelain Dolls when I was a little girl.  As it appears, it is quite pointless that I did, as I took a dislike to them as the started to spook me out as i got older and now they are in their original boxes at the top of a wardrobe in my parent's home...

    Pencils!

    I used to collect cool pencils when I was in elementary school. It all started when I would get pencils from the dentist and it just snow balled from there. I had at least 100 at one point. I've since gotten rid of them all. They just sat in a jar on my desk anyways.
