Monday Photo Shoot

Here's John Scalzi's assignment.


Have something you collect? Then this is the Photo Shoot for you:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Let us see your collection of whatever it is you collect. Thimbles, NASCAR collectables, Star Trek figurines -- what it is, let's see those tchotchkes!

I collect Better Homes And Gardens Cookbooks.  I think I have every edition now except the newest one, and I'm waiting until that one's been around for a few months so I can get it cheaper on Ebay or half.com.  There are a couple of Betty Crocker cookbooks, too. 

And  as you see, I collect a few horses.  In order, the horses are:  A Breyer Foxtrotter (like my Blue), a Breyer Tennessee Walking Horse, a wooded carved rearing horse I bought in Mexico a couple of years ago, and a cowboy-with-yearling Cliff bought me when he went to Wisconsin without me.

I also collect dust, but hopefully you can't see that in the picture.

hee hee...I collect dust, too!  What a coincidence!  I also collect baskets, but getting up on the counter to take pictures of them is a pain. so I won't.  That's all I need, is to get up on the counter and then fall off and break something (else).

I wish my digital camera worked!  I collect penguins!  Love them!  I have a slew of them in my bathroom!

Love all those cookbooks.  I do believe my mom had one just like that.  I remember the pattern on the front.

I have one Betty Croker book and it is what I use for the essencials.  I also have a Pilsbury Easy One Step book that is great for easy meals.  I think of it as fresh made hamburger helper.  
Sorry about the spelling.

I use to collect ceramic cats and cat pictures. I had one wall arranged with 8 by 10 cat pictures all in black matching frames. I got the pictures out of Cat Fancy magazines and other magazines. When we panneled the living room we decided no more holes in the wall. When I moved out here I mostly got rid of all collections and now I collect rattlesnake rattles. It is odd that I didn't get a single one this summer. Paula
