Some people tend to think that I collect a lot of things. Not really. Yes, while I love my paper, books, old diaries, pens, tape, alphabet and number sets, I'm very selective about what I bring into our home. We live in a tiny space and don't have a lot of room for a ton of stuff.
One of the things that I can't resist are old stamp sets bought in bits and pieces. I tend to look for X's and O's, letters to spell out favorite words (like peace and love) and numbers in a vast variety of sizes. I try to buy ones that are usable (where the rubber isn't cracked or missing portions.) I love the character that they provide when they don't stamp well on a page. I rarely use them but I like looking at them and imagining their previous life.
What are some of the things that you collect?
