What do you collect now? And what did your previous collections contain? I always had a weakness for collecting things. I started my first collection in my early childhood; as far as I remember I was 4 in that time. We lived in a village, my grandparents were breeding poultry: ducks, hens, guinea fowls, so I had many occasions to find feathers to my collection. I remember that one day I felt bored with it and I felt an irresistable compulsion to throw out all my feathers but a bit later I already knew that in fact everything I wanted was to have them got back :D I terrorized my family with my cries - I remember that it was my gran who was forced to look for the objects of my collection and give them back to me :twisted: :D Two years later I used to eat some kind of waffles (their name was Kuku-ruku, I recalled this name after years) and to each one there was enclosed a sticker with a picture of an animal. I collected them as same as the rest of children from our kindergarten. In the same time I also used to collect the fake banknotes of all countries that were given to the chewing gum which my mother bought for me. A few years later I was proud of a collection of pencil sharpeners and photos of women cut out of the illustrated magazins. In my early and middle teens I was a collector of the posters with famous stars of film and music. Several years ago picture postcards, small figurines of dogs and stamps joined my collections too. I planned also starting several others ( minerals, china dolls, glass figurines of animals - here I was inspired by "The glass menagerie") but every time I got bored very quickly when I couldn't find a new thing to my collection for a long time). And how does it look in your case? :D

I guess you could say I collect CAR magazine, as I have an entire four-storey drawer which was packed to the brim with them. I had to throw many away because there was no-where else to put them. It's starting to fill up again, though. :D
I got a subscription, so I never miss an issue!

Oh and, er....Cars PWN! 8)

as a child i collected:
Postcards, i prefered them with two pictures on it you have to hold them and move them the whole time ( don`t know how to call this in english) that you can see the pictures changing... later i changed to collect stamps, i collected also smurfs
And the other thin i can not explain i will try it.: As a 5 year old child i found out that the "furemaker ?" gives his waste away if you ask...the wast was: the faces and the feets from the anymals which he couldnt use to make a fur-coat ( sorry, i don`t know how to write/say that right) i found interesting the different look of each i compared them every day i could decorate my whole room with it...
My mother found it terrible, but also interesting.
Today i collect things which are glowig in the night, LED lamps and buttoms (!).

I also love cats :D Every time I visited my grandparents I played with their cats. I have several favourite forums which I visit many times a day and one of them is about those gorgeous animals. It's a veritable treasury of knowledge about Felis silvestris catus in the Polish Internet :D
