Non horse collections

I'm stealing this from Zab who posted a question about collecting horse stuff. I'm curious what you collect non-horse.
Are you a collector of coins, stamps or something oddly different like me. I collect hankies. You know the kind your grandma carried to church to daintily wipe her nose with. I use to collect egg plates but my collection got to big so had to quit. I also love old tools and farm stuff I have a small collection of them and canning jars.
Whats your fancy?

Since my early 20's I've been collecting gray hairs.

My husband, however, likes to collect old pop bottles. Drives me nuts as he doesn't have to dust the darn things.

Pirate type things. I adore pirates, Disney and anything along the pirates of the caribbean. The main bedroom of the house is decorated as that theme from the tile to the bedding to the wall decor and everything else in between.

Per my husband I collect all sorts of junk. My very large house if full of crud to prove his point. I love old things. Love furniture. Also, I collect every variety of Coral Bells and Dianthus I can get my hands on. Also collect all sorts of Astilbes and Hydrangea. I love old light fixtures too!

Anyone need any cool old floor lamps? :)

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.

I tended to collect those little toys which you get when you buy chocolate eggs. I still have a box of them.

When I was a kid I collected pebbles.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
