      I used to collect books, but ran out of space. I collect sheet music and CDs for work. Otherwise I mostly collect bills. I mean bill collectors collect me. Or something.

    I collect mugs.  I love mugs for hot chocolate and steamy coffee.  I have a mug from my sister and mugs from some of my dear friends and from my daughters too.  They are special ... and because I use mugs everyday, I smile as I think of the thoughtfulness of the person who bought it just for me.  I also pick up mugs for me.  smile  I am drawn to beautiful and feminine  mugs.  Floral are probably my favorites.  Lang carries many mugs that suite my fancy.

    Me personally or my mailbox? My mailbox loves junk mail and bills... I collect non-collectibles. Meaning an odd assortment of stuff keeps accumulating on my desk, in my drawers, under my bed, in my closet, even in the fridge.

    My goal, however, is to collect shoes, clothes, books and chocolate. And that's just on a superficial level!!

    I used to collect every letter, note, card, scribble that someone gave me until I realized I had shoebox after shoebox full of these dear things. It was a painful process having to sort through and eliminate but I have cut back, and am down to four shoeboxes and am slowly oh so slowly starting to rebuild my empire!(That's what electronic mail has done to me! Now I divert my saved messages to folders instead of shoeboxes!!!) Yikes!
