Scavenger Hunt – Week #14

This week’s scavenger hunt was to photograph “something you collect”.

Our leader thinks the topic is rather boring, but I disagree.  I’m curious to see what people collect, and why they collect them.  You’ll probably laugh out loud when you see my collection!

I can’t really tell you why I collect this item, but I can tell you I began my collection at least 35 to 40 years ago.  A few pieces in my collection have even come from as far away as France (courtesy of my niece).

My collection definitely shows its age.  Over the years the pieces have faded and torn; some are barely readable.  Each one, though, is a piece of pop culture that evokes memories of the past.

Very clever, what a unique "collection". You're probably the only person I've ever know that collects straws.

My "collection" photo is going to be so mundane compared to yours, but then, I finally have a really, really good excuse for not being very creative about it. At the beginning of the week I was super busy and thinking about packing for my trip, and at the end of the week I was traveling, and now I'm not home to photograph my "collection"--of which I have none.

But I do have an idea of a wimpy photo, so stay tuned.

Love the Carrolls straw! I wonder how many people remember that place?!

I remember Carrols too! I think? I was probably in a car seat. Great collection! Lindsey collects cards, Sue-Pez...I have hats and magnets. Interesting to see what we collect. I must say that I would have never chosen straws to be your collection- a pleasant surprise!
