You mean besides dust?? Ok, ok.. I get it.
First of all, I collect trinket boxes. All sorts of trinket boxes-crystal, porcelain, wood, capiz shell, soapstone and whatever other unique varieties I find. I have been collecting trinket boxes since my first husband, Dennis, brought one home to me from Dobbs Bargain City in Centralia back in 1973. I have been collecting ever since. I have them from many places around the world including Rome, Paris, London, Ireland, Beliz, Honduras, etc., as well as a few antique pieces. This collection now sits proudly in a lovely curio cabinet. My family and friends know that if they are ever stumped for a gift, just find a unique trinket box and I will be happy.
Aside from my boxes, I have a wonderful collection of baseball items! My prized pieces include a baseball autographed by Julian Javier, who was my favorite player when I was growing up. I also have a ball autographed by Tony Pena, another favorite of mine.. and I have a chunk of the old Busch Stadium. I was asked once why I had a chunk of concrete sitting on the shelf. All I could say was that it was NOT a chunk of concrete, it was a piece of my soul..a piece of my life that meant more to me than there are words to describe. And finally, I have a MASSIVE collection of baseball cards. I love them and some of them are truly classics.
There you have it, my collections. What do YOU collect??
