24 Hour Read-a-Thon - Mini Challenge Collection Obsession





Wendy at Caribou's Mom is hosting this mini challenge for hours 8 through 10 of the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon. This challenge will close at the end of hour 10 (which is 3:00PM PST).

Collection Obsession

Most obsessive readers are also collectors. Besides books, what do YOU collect?

Me, except for books, I am really not a collector. I tend to be more of a minimalist when it comes to things around my house. (My husband is a different story).  So I decide to take a picture of the one thing I did start collecting in 2009.....Pandora Bracelet and Beads.  Are these popular where you are?  They are very popular here in the northeast, and I'm crazy about mine. It's very personal with initials: (D) for me (H) husband, (B) son, and (M) daughter, and well as colorful glass beads, and others with various stones.


What do you collect?

Thanks for hosting this mini-challenge Wendy.

  2. That's really interesting because I had no idea this was called a Pandora piece of jewelry. Very pretty example!

  5. Beautiful bracelet! My 9 year old daughter would love those! Where do you get them from?

    And as for your comment on my blog, I hear you on the tired thing. Seriously. I just had my afternoon 2 hour reading stint right in my most TIRED time of day. On the one hand I was trying not to get irritated when my non-napping 9 year old kept interrupting me every 10 min, but then it ended up being a blessing because a couple of times I would have fallen asleep with book in hand otherwise!!

    Great challenge!

  7. Pretty!! I used to collect tea cups and saucers, but ran out of space. They're packed away now. I think living in a small house has turned me off from collections (other than books).

    Good luck with the evening hours. I'm beginning to feel a bit worn out, so I'll switch books and maybe walk on the treadmill for a bit.

  9. I've never heard of these, but they're very pretty!

    I'm not much of a collector of other things myself, so I ended up passing over this mini-challenge in favor of my books, but it is fun seeing what other people collect!

    Hope you're enjoying you're reading, now I better get back to mine! =)
