UB you're funny! :)

I collect green Depression Glass (the Block Optic pattern), sock yarn, quilting fabric, pincushions, and thimbles. Besides cooking, I obviously knit socks and make quilts. I'm at the point where I'm really trying to make use of my "stuff". No sense in letting my kid have it all for the best garage sale ever. :)

I like to collect angels and bought a pretty one for a tree-topper from a thrift shop, no less


Sorry if that is too big. I also received a gorgeous ornament from a friend in Alabama.

I collect pink Dogwood pattern and pink Lace Edge Depression glass! I buy non pattern pink glass for extras and accessories.

I also have the original Jadite glassware and dishes.

I have quit collecting anything. Sometimes it gets to the point that your stuff owns you.

Other than cookbooks I have collections of colored cruets, coffee grinders and I can't go into a TJMaxx, Home Goods or Tuesday Morning, etc. without picking up a couple new plates/bowls.
