What do you collect?

I think most people like to collect things. When I was young, I collected matchbooks from all the places my parents visited. And of course, I had a collection of stuffed animals. No dolls. I've collected tea sets and books, but in the past 10-15 years, my favorite item to pick up has to be the turtle.

Of course, the stuffed animal theme stuck with me.


Here's a puzzle I did - and my DH laminated it and we put it on the wall.


Most of my little turtles keep each other company on the bookshelves ...

My pin cushion turtle keeps ME company at my work table, even though I don't sew.


Turtles are suppose to be wise and are a symbol of Mother Earth. This one likes hanging around with one of my plants.


You can also find turtles outside our house.



I never had a pet turtle. When I see them in the road, I just place them on the side, and they usually scurry off down the embankment. Freddy (above) got a paint job from my DH Danny - I think he looks pretty good.

What cute turtles! I have a couple of little turtles made of shells that I got from the beach. They are tiny and adorable.
