My favorite things to collect are rocks, crystals and gems.
I remember the first time I fell in love with rocks. I was about 8/9 years old and had just come back from summer camp. As a surprise, my parents had converted their office space into a new bedroom for me. We had only lived in this house for a couple of years and they really didn't use the "office" anyway. It was nice to no longer share a room with my sister. At first it was a little creepy being in the room alone; especially every time the a/c came on. There was a strange rattle noise coming through one of the walls. I finally convinced my dad to check it out. Someone had stashed a bag full of rocks and an old polisher up in the vent. I was hooked ... I have loved rocks ever since.
I also love to collect mosaics, fetish carvings, mini totem poles and small vases or pottery jars.
