Travis, the collector.


As you know, I am a collector of many things. Travis is such a good sport about letting me decorate and often finds things to add to my collections, but doesn't collect much himself. I will admit that is partly because I am picky and "don't let" him bring a lot of stuff home. So when he decided he wanted to collect either stamps or coins, I said whichever he wanted, and he has been really into it!
It is pretty interesting to see the currency that people around the world use. Paper money is my favorite. My dad has a pretty big collection and I used to love to flip through it.


Scampi is really into it too.

  1. that one with the hole in it is really cool. i "don't let" dave really have a say about my crazy vintage hoarding, in exchange, i turn a blind eye to video games. it's a give and take.

  3. I've always admired people who have the patience for very detailed hobbies like stamp or coin collecting - all of those dates and specifics. Scampi is such a good kitty. If that were my Pip, half of those coins would be getting cut out of her stomach right now.

    1. i just found out that my dad took up coin collecting (he has a HUGE collection) so he would have something to do once my brother and I were born. haha, apparently my mom was totally baby crazy and didn't want to do anything without us for a long time.
      we have been lucky and none of our kitties are eaters. ::knock on wood:: if travis had moved from that table though, she would have been laying on top of them.

  4. Oh gosh, Steven collects EVERYTHING. The worst is motorcycle helmets. He buys them from thrift stores so he can modify them later but usually he doesn't have time. So we have 15 USED helmets just sitting around. It's so gross.
