While on our way to visit our folks one fine evening, we stopped by at a small restaurant along I-20 to have some supper. I was fascinated to see this huge collection of collectible cars. It interests me to see collections like this especially on display to the public to see. I wonder how many collectible cars there are in the display cabinet.
Do you like collecting souvenir items, too? My husband and I do. In fact, he started collecting fridge magnets. 🙂 On the other hand, my cousin is collecting souvenir spoons from different states in the US. Three more souvenir spoons and her collection is complete.
How about you? Do love collecting souvenir items? What do you collect?
I used to collect postcards.
When I was younger, I used to collect postcards. I had a few pen pals before. We exchanged letters thru post. We sent souvenirs to each other like postcards or simple arts and crafts. We even sent photographs, too. 🙂 It was a nice feeling to receive letters from my pen friends with postcards enclosed. Because I feel like I have visited them in person just looking at the pictures and souvenirs. Some of my pen pal stayed in touch with me for a long time, some stopped because time came when we had to face the most important priority in our lives back then-college.
Whenever I go on a trip or even a visit at my friend’s house, I’m captivated with paintings and pictures. The details and the meaning of each masterpiece and how it is connected to reality seems so interesting to me to find out. I fully admire people who have skills in drawing or painting and so gifted in the field of arts.
Art is something that my honey and I have in common. We are not good at it but we appreciate and love collecting artistic things. We used to researching every time we saw an interesting one. And lately I get bumped online about shepard fairey art. The pictures and prints seem so intriguing to me, full of meaning and graphically impressive.
Just wondering how he come up with the ideas in every prints he make? It honestly puzzled me, but anyway I selected few prints from Shepard Fairy and I will definitely show it to my honey.
