I collect dust. I like to display my collections all over the house, on any horizontal surface. I also like to collect dog hair, which I gather up every now and then and store in my vacuum bag.

I LOVE knicknacks!!!!!  I have a lot of them too, lol....apparently I'm a pack rat too...I have a hard time letting anything go, either for sentimental reasons, or just that I hate to get rid of anything that still functions, or that I might use someday, lol...much to my husband's chagrin...   I also like to be surrounded by cool and pretty stuff...no harm there I suppose eh?

im the biggest pack rat in th world I think...i collect everything. Primarily books. More books than I could ever read in my entire life, even if i read 24 hours a day, 7 days a week but that doesnt stop me from buying more. I also collect Scooby Doo things, windchimes, animal and nature nick knacks/ceramics,  candles,... and fridge magnets

Lost...I think that is sweet!!!

Ok if I had the space I would collect Snowmen and Santas...

But I currently have Longaberger Baskets... but due to costs and seeing as how I should feed my kid...I don't purchase them anymore! But I have enough to get by for now! :)

I love elephants...but again the space....

Vic..you & my husband too...he takes up more space than me w/his hunting & fishing stuff... I will lay claim to some of the camping stuff since I camp too... but we need a whole well...like he wants Hunting Cabin for that stuff!!! LOL

I would then decorate that cabin in cool hunting, fishing, camping bear themed stuff! But in a nice manly way!

okay lostdreams....don't tell anybody this, shhhhhh.....but I have a stuffed black dog that I lay with...I saw it at Toys R Us when my kids were younger, and I wanted it so badly...my husband bought it for me...it fits perfectly for laying with as comfort, and a pillow, and a cushion for my boo-boo ribs...

Hey, I thought of something here....do unintentional collections count?  If so, I have a "collection" of magazines, material and yarn, art supplies, jewelry-making supplies, clothes that are too small, movies, CDs, and just tons and tons of books......
