Fun Monday



FUN Monday is for us to have some FUN on a Monday...so Mariposas' going to get into your minds and do just that...have some FUN!

Collections... We all have them...and if you don't, you do....you just may not realize it.

For some reason or another we all collect something and we collect it for reasons that will definitely make for good reading. So on Monday, tell us about your collections. If you don't have or don't want or CAN'T show us a picture, then tell us what the collection is in 10 words or less. Then tell us why you started collecting it.



If you participate, sign her link.. read about all the neat collections..


1. I collect Milk pitchers. I just saw them in antique shops and started collecting them. I only have about 8 of them..

2. I collect Recipes/cook books.. I have about 20 for various places.. Lots of them are from area churches, when they have their fundraisers and make them, with recipes from their congregations..I've gotten some of the best recipes..yum yum!

3. I have a collection of Archie comic books from when I was a little girl. I have some that have 15cents and 25 cents on them.. WOW!

4. We have a collection of Maple Syrup bottles from various places.We have about 5 now..

That's about all the collections I have for the moment..

Join in if you like and be sure to comment and then leave your link at Mariposa's blog..

The weather was very nice.. No complaints..

I want to go see The New Indiana Jones movie next weekend.. I hear it's good.. I loved all of the previous ones..

All in all.. it was a very good , relaxing weekend..

Milk pitchers and syrup bottles...there may be a theme :D

I would collect recipes, if I could cook, but some talents are lost to me.

Your collections sound so cool. I have to ponder on what I officially "collect"!

Cruise Mom said...

Old Archie comics - I used to have some of those! My favorites were the ones with Sabrina in them.

Steph,

I don't collect anything in particular - although I do like "old things". I just buy whatever happens to strike my fancy at the moment. Once upon a time, I use to collect Barbie's - but that is another tale...

(I hope this comment doesn't post twice - the first one didn't take..:))

I'll post my hippos collection along with pics - soon. Glad you had a good weekend. We are having HORRIBLE - COLD weather. The bright spot is that it can't last long, can it?

Have a great week.

Archie, milk pitchers, and maple syrup what a fine collection even if a bit out of the ordinary when strung together, but that what makes them fun.

Alison said...

Fun theme! I collect children's books. I don't have any of those comic books, but you mentioning them brought back memories from when I read them as a child. I had forgotten about that! :-)
