roopoo What do You collect? (100* d) RE: BS: What do You collect? 10 Feb 01


Anything and everything that takes my fancy, and consequently dust, much to the annoyance of Ian! I started collecting cheap Victorian wine glasses till I ran out of room. (Bill Sables knows the clutter I live in!) I have a number of old (19th century) books, from sheet music and song books to cookery books and novels. I've also got some womens' magazines from 1920s/40s/50s. The walls have run out of room to hang pictures. I started on bread boards, but resented paying a lot for the really nicely carved (old) ones, so I didn't buy any and stuck to fairly ordinary ones, and then I ran out of space (again). I like 19th century Staffordshire figures, but my conscience won't let me blow 100 (on average) a time for just the run of the mill ones.

The shed collects bikes. I must ask it what its intentions are as it's getting harder to cram all the bits my student offspring have decided they don't need "just at the moment" into it.

Must cancel my National Geographic subscription. I'm running out of room for those too!
