Day 16 - Do you collect something?

Before I answer that question I just have to say this, Wohooo!!! I'm half way of my 30 day blog challenge!!!!!

Now back to regular programming ;-) Yes. I collect a lot of things during my younger years and this has become a source of those petty arguments with my mother. I always irritate my mother as a result of my desire to accommodate a lot of things in my small room. Before, I collect scented stationeries, stickers and letters from my friends. And those personally handwritten letters? I still keep them. I also mentioned in a previous post that I used to collect this

Stamps from all over the world!
I wanted to revive this collection but the problem is how? The presence of email and social networking sites made communication faster and easier, which somehow defeats the nostalgic and personal approach of letter writing. Despite the fact that we are already in the digital age,  I still appreciate receiving personally handwritten notes.

My Jet Li film collections
One of my greatest wishes is to complete his entire line up of films. So to my local friends, you have an option what to give me this Christmas :-) Aside from Jet Li, I also collect DVDs of my favorite movies because if I become a millionaire, I will surely construct a mini theater in my new home. Okay, somebody has to slap me to wake me up from dreaming.

Today is a Monday and to start my day I'd like to recite my favorite "Monday chant." You want to hear it?

Here I am shouting this



Wishing everyone a great week ahead!


  1. Stamps collections always look interesting to me, but I'd never seen one in person. I normally don't collect things but lately I've been gathering more fabric, Sanrio products and please don't laugh at me... Tamagotchis. LOL have an awesome week!

  2. Hi Diane,

    my brother collects stamps, therefore he asked me to always save each stamp I get. You're right, it has become less and less since most people write emails.
    I collected stickers as a child, these days I collect boxes of all sizes. I love boxes :)

  3. Coins, I collect coins :) I started when we started changing coins from the bigs ones to the really small ones (remember those? the really tiny ones???). And then after that, we changed coins a few more times before we got to the ones we have now. I forget the year but my mom encouraged me to keep the old coins and since then, I started collecting old coins that I find. I still have them.

  4. Si funny about the Jet Li films! I don't have collections. I used to have stuff when I was younger but I never commit. Can I say I collect clothes? Hahahahaha!

  5. I love your stamp collection. Here is what I am collecting lately: My original unsold art pieces! LOL.

  6. Hi Diane! I have quite a few collections but the one that keeps growing the most is dishes! :) Looks like you have a nice stamp collection!
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
