    Re: What collectibles do you collect?

    Decanter sets. I bought 2 at antique stores a few years ago--mid century glass is something I love. Then my grandma gave me all theirs, so now I have 9 decanter sets, from the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's.

    I have the set my grandpa used the most, with the case with a sliding door--I actually remember him using it. The glass he used most --you can actually tell. It means a lot to me to have that set.

    I'll probably buy more through the years. I can't see myself not buying any that catch my eye. Most of my sets have 4-6 glasses. One set is missing a glass--my mom remembers breaking the glass when she was little, so that's kind of cool, too.

    This is a decanter set:

    Re: What collectibles do you collect?

    I collect(ed) Disney Snow Globes but lately I just don't like what they're making. I think I have about 22 of them displayed throughout the house but not how I want them. I'm still trying to organize to take pics for you guys.

    I also collect anything from Nightmare Before Christmas. Only from Disney though. My most prized item is my 7' Jack Skellington you see in my avatar.

    Re: What collectibles do you collect?

    You guys make me really want to get my @$$ in gear and get my Nightmare Before Christmas themed room done!
    I plan on making it to display the NBC items I have and also theme it to be like something Jack would live in. Like have the bucket Sally sent up to him with fish bone and wine bottle hanging from the ceiling, some fake bugs laying around to represent Oogie, a dog bed for zero, etc, etc...

    Re: What collectibles do you collect?

    Definitly a good idea! I did a Sea World themed bathroom in my house. Then I themed another room to evoke the feel of Grauman's Chinese Theater (complete with a projector and screen.)

    I try to put a theme into every single room I have. Even the garage (still working on that one.)


    What type of room did you want to theme NBC? A living room, bedroom, etc? Once you figure out the USEFULL purpose of the room, you can really discover the FUN purpose of it!

    Isn't it great to theme a room?!?! I wish I had more time, money, and a bigger house though!
    I plan on doing this to a 3rd bedroom that we use as an office.

    I collect Beauty and the beast, Star wars, Nascar. What a combination. I have most of my Star Wars collection packed away until I find enough space.

    Re: What collectibles do you collect?

    I collect Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell rare items and I have a rather unusual pin collection (very few were actually bought).

    My love of Collecting is Sailor Moon, Japanese version. I only have a few extremely rare pieces left to find to complete my collection which encompasses 2 curio cabinents and most of a bookshelf.

    Well idzy, I could make up a great story about how I was on the set of POTC and met Johnny, but that's all it would be, a great story. The picture is from the Pirates and Princess Party at WDW that we went to this last February. He was a great Jack Sparrow though. If you would like to read more about our experience with that Jack, I did write a little report on it, complete with pictures. It was a grand time!

    BTW, I love your avatar idzy.

    I collect coins and currency, and books.

    In terms of Disney I collect the monorail sets, but not so much the items outside the sets. I have every monorail except WDW Red and Gold.

    The rest is Dragons, Gargoyles and just stuff that strikes my fancy.

    Re: What collectibles do you collect?

    I have a really big penguin collection. Every Christmas someone gets me something new. My favorite is a tin-toy type that you wind with a key. It has a sticker on it that says, "Keep away from children. Not a toy." I show it to my DH occasionally to show I'm a grown-up.

    My Disney collection is eclectic. I have some art work, some antique spoons, a few snow globes, antenna balls, t-shirts, hotel stationery, figurines, dishes and utensils and other kitchen stuff, and my two youngest (7 & 9) have a Mickey and Friends themed room.

    I get stuff I love, and when I look at it, wear it or use it, it makes me happy.
    Don't make me come in there!
