I collect music from all over the world, classical, popular and folk music, most especially Greek songs. I'm also very fond of French and Georgian (in the Caucasus) music. Most of my music these days is in my folder of favourites on Youtube.

I also collect rocks, minerals, fossils, shells (from sea, freshwater and land). I only take the dead ones. I love snails, because they can be so round. I also collect dead pine cones and photos of wild flowers.

What do I collect? Too much stuff! Let me call my books, music and videos my library. And let's not forget the digital stuff; computer software and computers which I also consider part of my library. So too, my musical instruments and sheet music. But none of it is really a collection per se as much as the stuff I want to hang on to. And as time goes by, I'm working to get rid of some stuff.

Most of the things I collect nowdays are digital as it is cheaper/takes up less space. The thing that comes to mind most vividly is my Living Pokedex with over 1,000 different pokemon of every type and form. Also Sonic Adventure 2 Chao. All the jewel chao, many S and Chaos Chao.

I have a decent IRL pokemon plushie collection. If I had money I would collect those. I have the remains of a Beanie Baby collection from my youth (Brownie/Cubbie, Rex, Creepy/Spinner and 7 star Lucky). I have a lot of pebbles and feathers and stones and things of that nature. I have to be careful to really limit my IRL collecting habits. Accidentally-on-purpose collected cardboard boxes and ended up having to have my mum come round and help me clear out the kitchen because they were everywhere.

If I was rich and had money to look after them, I'd absolutely collect guinea pigs. And breed/collect more of the dog breed I used to show. I don't know if you can really 'collect' animals but I'd have a lot of fun looking/breeding for rare colours and morphs, like I used to with snakes.

Since I received my first children's cookbook for my 6th birthday, I've been collecting recipes - on paper, in books, by now also digital.

Sort of building on that, I started collecting ideas in my late teens since I've always travelled a lot, seen new and different things. First unsystematically, later in am more structured manner.
Ideas from all walks of life - cooking, construction, design, layouts, policies, templates, fashion, travel, stories, whatever.

With moving and travelling being a part of life, collecting physical things was always difficult.
My friends and family though seem to think I run an asylum for all sorts of bears in distress, so something like a collection of those - teddy bears, as mugs, in glass, ceramic, etc. - has partially taken over my household.

Someone above mentioned they collect fat art, which reminded me of my small collection of fat girl statues. Here are the first two I ever received. The person who gifted them to me said the one standing reminded them of me. I can see it. I’m such a sentimental sap.

I have one of these as well! Slightly different striped blue and white swimming costume but same maker for sure. I have a male fat statue as well.

Very cute. They're a bit svelte, don't you think?

I collect perfumes, especially vintage bottles. Also fat art. Here's one of my figurines, as a garden decoration.

Ah yes, I would expect nothing less from the class act Tracy. Then again, perfumes as a collection is like metaphorical chum for the male FA sharks in the water! LOL :D But as I recall, you are married.

As for me: I have collected various things over the years. As of now, I would say my main collection is of empty vodka bottles (Kidding!!). I admit to still collecting fat girl erotica/porn (at age 53). It used to be paper magazines like BUF, Dimensions and Plumpers and Big Women. Now it is video clips from various pay sites. Love all you beautiful sexy gals !!!!

I collect small spoons.
All same, all different.

Collection has grown since this picture has been taken.

That does remind me of my spoon drawer....

While I wouldn't exactly say I collect small spoons - I definitely have a spoon fetish.
There simply is the perfect spoon for every food - and it is extremely important to always use the right one ....;)

So I have egg spoons, espresso spoons, grapefruit spoons, yoghurt spoons, jam spoons, breakfast spoons, serving spoons, cocktail spoons, cream spoons .......

💯 agree.
The one on the left side is my ice cream spoon for a certain brand, and certain flavor only

More of my fat art collection, a grouping of prints of fat mermaid watercolors. The artist is ladyatlarge on Etsy. She has more than mermaids in her watercolor art prints, and she also has a pair of fat mermaid articulated paper doll image files you can buy to print out and color and assemble.

There's a song about a mermaid in my collection of Greek songs. Sorry, people, but I don't have a song about spoons.

A place that has buildings and people.
I haven’t been fishing recently, but I enjoyed going with an ex. I never could bait my own hook, but I enjoyed the peacefulness of going out on the lake in his boat or throwing our lines out from the dock. Even took me deep sea fishing in the Gulf once, but I mostly just watched the guys fish. I’m generally a chatty chick, but put a pole in my hand and I suddenly become very quiet.
I used to go fishing with my ex. Well more like I caught skipjacks to use for cut bait. That was my assignment. Funny thing, my daughters love fishing, my oldest even does ice fishing, my other daughter learned fly fishing. My sons HATE fishing.
