Collections are reflections of you.
During early childhood my daughter watched The Wizard Of Oz over and over again..that was twenty five years ago. Why she watched the classic, Wizard Of Oz movie- sometimes five times a day was a mystery. Years later she told me it was the scarecrow she enjoyed, she said "He was just so nice". . She has a Wizard Of Oz collection and an Oz cell phone ringtone!
