I used to collect pins from everywhere that I traveled. I blogged about it here.
Once that trend ended, I didn't replace it with anything. I'm honestly not that big on souvenirs unless it is a really special trip.
There was a period of time when we collected beanie babies as a family. We all enjoyed the thrill of the hunt. Now we laugh about that illness and are glad we got out of it in time to break even when we sold off the bulk of our collection. There are still a few in a box in the attic...
Now it seems Jay and I are into collecting and restoring antique/vintage furniture and furnishings. Some are for our home. Some are for our future business.
I love the cherry wood color.
I love the shape of the drawer.
I love the hardware.
I love that it is tall enough to be functional and that it has storage (although the bottom remains empty at this point).
I could share a lot more about this recent "collection" but I've discovered that I need to take some photos! I don't have many of these items photographed.
