Yeah, books are like old friends. I'm thinking my husband is right though....the books do kind of take over the apartment. I'm thinking I'll just keep hard copies of my very favorites, or one's I'd like to pass on the my future children. This e-reader seems very cool....and I wouldn't even have to go to the store to get a book. I could just browse right here on the internet and then upload it! I'm kind of holding out a bit though until a few more authors are offered at their site. My very favorite (Dean Koontz) is not offered yet.

You could always sell the books you don't want anymore on Amazon as used. I've made quite a chunk of change doing that.

Then I got a library card

I collect Westland Carosel Horses that have a music box in them. I collect Boyd's Bears that have a special meaning to my life (ie: nurses, doctors, softball players, etc.) and I collect Blueberry Pottery.

Of course, as most women do, I collect things that sparkle, like diamonds, rubies, emeralds.....well, I think you get the point.

What is more interesting than what I collect, is why I collect these things. When my husband and I were first married, he didn't have a clue what to buy me for those special occassions; now he knows exactly what will put a smile on my face. Isn't that special of me?

My husband and I just got home from a flea market, and now we are going to have to build another bookshelf for all the books that we brought home today. No nursing books, but we found a lot of other goodies.

To NPs Saves Lives:

My kids use to look at my stuff and ask, "So what are we suppose to do with all of this stuff when you're dead?" When they figured out that my stuff is worth money, they wanted to know if I was leaving them in my will

Wink I collect

I used to collect books, but have learned to let go. I donate most of them to our facility's book sales. I also give bags of books to whomever is looking for something to read. I've tried to get used to using the library but they don't have all the authors I read.
Anyway, now I'm collecting yarn, natural fibers. I am making a wrap with them and will knit a big blanket with the rest. As new fibers become available, I buy 1 or 2 skeins with the thought to add to the blankie. Have wools, silks, cottons, linens, tercel, yak, muskox and buffalo. Also have soy and bamboo yarns. Can't wait to get ahold of the new corn, and milk yarns. My kids don't know what to do with it all when I pass, and I've advised them to sell it all and have a party with the proceeds.

Default fiberholic

I am just now working on de-mothing my stash. I weave and spin (ok, before starting my doctoral program I wove and spun). Moths got in my stash and I just couldn't deal--I closed the door and walked away. I've been bagging and freezing and laying in the sun my fiber and yarn. I love silk--if I could weave only silk I'd be thrilled. For spinning I really love alpaca and other exotics. I have yet to spin cotton or linen or only silk. My new plan, besides getting all the yarn/fiber in plastic containers and all surfaces wiped down, is to at least start spinning again -- it certainly is easy enough to pick up and put down. And I'll keep patting my loom and telling her "some day."

I collect shot glasses. I have one from every state/big city I've been to. Unfortunately, I have nowhere to display them, yet. They're all neatly wrapped up in tissue paper and stuff in a box in my office closet. Someday, I'm going to get them all out and have everyone over for multiple shots of tequila. Woohoo!

Default Butterflies

Its only a very recent collection (started one week before christmas) but I can't resist them. They are so pretty and make me feel better when I see them. Also makes it easier for people to buy gifts

I used to collect soft toys but grew out of them by the time I was 20. Book worm also, Slowly building the collection - keep all old text books for reference (and they make me look smarter )
