7weirdWhat is the weirdest thing you collect?


In all honesty, I collect several different things, none of which are overly weird – at least not in my mind.

There’s the squirrels.

And the roses.

I also have a Swarovski crystal rose, a wooden puzzle box rose from my sister, an oil painting hanging in my office, a ceramic rose, a bouquet of purple duct tape roses from the kid, there’s a small filet crochet rose valance along the top of my desk at home, several decorative plates featuring roses, and a very large red plush rose from Josh. And these assorted pretties that live at the office…

He also started me a collection of dragonflies.

I am also quite fond of things with Celtic knot work.
