    I think my sweetheart would tell you I collect everything, but mostly I get attached to things that have sentimental meaning, and for me that means things that belonged to people I love, even very practical things. As far as actual collecting goes, I really love vintage portraits of people and their pets. They are priceless–the people are usually quite stiff and dressed up, while the dogs are smiling and relaxed.

  2. I’m not much of a collector – except for fabric. You can never have enough fabric.

    Thanks for sharing! Sandi Henderson is so yummy.

  3. Besides fabric? 😉 Vintage Mickey anything! Thanks for sharing your stash! 🙂

  4. I’m not a collector, except for fabrics.

  5. Sandy

    I collect yarn, does that count? I plan to knit it , one day…

  6. I used to collect tea sets, but condo living means limited space so the only thing I collect now is fabric.

  7. I used to collect angels, but don’t anymore. Now i collect fabric and books that I want to read but never have time for because I am too busy sewing.

  8. I collect owls and wooden boxes. You can’t have enough boxes to store things in!

  9. Charity Reesor

    Ok now letter R’s, that’s interesting!!! Well, I always seem to collect and then abandon my collections. When I was younger it was frogs, then when I got married it was teapots, then as a craft lover it was pincushions. And now, well I wouldn’t say I’m inclined to “collect” anything. Possibly the best answer I can give to that question is…. Memories! I collect memories 😉 Now if the question was what do I accumulate, then the answer would be far different…lol!

  10. I collect writing utensils! Pens mostly…I know it’s weird but I have an obsession for a good writing/drawing pen. I also have a large collection of books. Last count it was over 200. Yikes!

  11. Maeve

    Lovely fabrics! I collect (of course) fabrics, baskets (esp. the beautiful sweet grass baskets of the Lowcountry around Charleston, SC, hearts of all kinds (jewelry, prints, stones shaped like hearts, quilted hearts, etc.), books and more books, angels, and art work of all kinds for the fun of it.

  12. ira

    I collect yarns 😀

  13. Those keys are my favorite print too! As far as collecting goes, I used to collect rocks… now it’s just fabric. 😉

  14. i think you are one truly sweet and openly generous soul to be so kind to people for a whole week on your birthday. isnt the world a better place because of your birth.
    the skeleton key fabric is tops ! ive never seen it before…
    i collect old poetry books. i collect old blue mason canning jars. i love scissors. i find it very hard to walk away from any enamel bowls or pitchers for sale, particularly if they are red, or blue, or black.
    ok or green.

  15. These are really beautiful fabrics Lindsey! Thanks for the giveaway again…
    I collect books, wool, fabric and also have a large collection of art materials! In fact you could say I am a magpie collector… It has been remarked that I probably have one of everything in my craft room!

  16. Fran

    I love these fabrics, so gorgeous! I don’t collect anything really, though I suppose you could say that I collect fabric – not really though, as I use my fabrics to make things & to me a collection is something that you have to look at rather than use. That may sound as though I’m making excuses – oh well!

  17. Elizabeth McDonald

    One thing I collect is buttons! I fill mason jars with buttons all of one color, and right now they fill a shelf. Help! I need to know what to do with these buttons, although I must say they are very pretty in the jars! (Thanks for the explanation of Zakka – I followed your link!)

  18. Caillean Z

    I collect fabric, books and penguins. And I would love to add some more fabric to my stash. Thanks for the give-away.

  19. Just fabric and other sewing bits and pieces, most of it I use though. Used to collect stamps and Erasers when i was a kid

  20. Covadonga

    i love the one with the keys!!!!!

  21. Gill

    Great fabrics!
    Apart from fabric(!) I collect chairs! my house is overrun with them!

  22. Ooooh, what beautiful fabric! I collect old sewing bits and pieces, although they’ve gotten really expensive in the last few years. And fabric goes without saying!

  23. Audrey

    I love that fabric too and unfortunately have run out of the red keys. I collect patches from places I visit. Lately I’ve thought they might be fun to sew into a bunting.

  24. Sue SmilesAlot

    I like Vintage sewing patterns. I have a small collection. But other than that, nothing really.

  25. Lisa Marie

    I don’t collect anything now but when I was a kid I used to collect matchbooks from places I went. I guess that makes me old because who gives out matchbooks anymore? I have a HUGE brandy snifter full of them. I guess if I went through and looked at them I would remember lots of places I’ve been, but I don’t actually do that. Oh well, seemed like a cool thing at the time.

  26. I collect antiques and retro furniture, although there’s not much space left for any more stuff! I also seem to be collecting fabric, oh and I just realised like Lisa Marie – I used to collect matchbooks a long time ago (I wonder if I still have them).

  27. Laura

    Another great give away!!! Those are great fabrics, especially the key one. Skeleton keys always remind me of one of my favorite movies: Beetlejuice.

    I dont really collect anything, except maybe fabric. 🙂

  28. I collect fiestaware pieces and silver spoons.

  29. My only true collection is fabric, but I’m starting a vintage Pyrex collection for my sewing room!

  30. Happy Birthday Week! I collect cake stands….they’re just so pretty!

  31. I swear we have the same taste in fabric! I was just eyeing those keys the other day over at Sew Mama Sew! When I was younger, I collected dolls, but at this point, I pretty much collect fabric. 🙂

  32. Jess (BeeSewSweet)

    That is lovely fabric! I’d say I collect fabric and patterns!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. Emma

    I have a great doll collection but mostly from when I was a kid. I went through a cow kick in college and grad school. Now I just collect fabric!

  34. I collect the Royal Copenhagen blue fluted dinner service. That and then i hoard… I mean collect fabric as well 🙂

  35. Becky Greene

    Lately all I have collected is fabric and ideas on Pinterest. Definitely the obsessions of the moment! Thanks for the fabulous giveaway – hope your whole week has been super-happy!

  36. Other than fabric! I seem to be downsizing rather than collecting these days, but pottery always draws me in. Thanks for yet another amazing giveaway.

  37. annabelle

    I have a thing for old books esp children’s books, love them. Of course there is the ever grow stacks and basket fulls of fabric 😉

    thank you

  38. jmniffer

    I used to collect snowmen, until they overwhelmed my space. Now, I am starting to collect fabric. Thanks for the chance to add some fabric to my little collection.

  39. Love Sandi Henderson and those colors are beautiful 🙂 Collect: fabric and bag patterns, cookbooks, art supplies (esp. great pens!) oh and I suppose crafty books. No wonder my house is so full…teehee.

  40. wapiti

    I am a fabric-addict and a book-collector. I love the texture of fabrics and the sparkling colors of the latest designs. For these fabrics you give away I’ll surely find a place and a nice pattern!!!

  41. Monica

    I don’t really collect anything. I’ve tried collecting this or that over the years but once they started to take over my house I got rid of them.

  42. I love collecting feed sack fabrics. However, I am actually turning part of my collection into a quilt, so I can enjoy them in a completely new way! And my grandmother is gifting her collection of handblown glass vases to me, one at a time. So I am graciously acquiring anothers collection.

  43. I don’t really collect anything, but my family would say that I “collect” (maybe hoard a little) fabric and old family photos. I know that I should do something with them, but I haven’t yet.

    What beautiful fabric — they will look so good in my swoon blocks

  44. I love to antique collect glass pieces from the 30’s to 50’s. Except my hutch is completely filled up now, and is a bear when I have to dust it all. There are some truly gorgeous vases, bowls, dishes, out there, and often times less expensive than if you bought new! haileybarb at cox dot net.

  45. fenna

    I dont’ really collect much other than fabric–I have a tendency to clean/get rid of things I don’t use and I hate dusting so I try not to have too many things around the house to dust 😛

  46. Mary Jo Larson

    I did have a bell collection years ago but I would have to say that the only collection I have now is fabric and yarn and books to go with. Thanks

  47. I collect anything green (for the most part) and anything old (old jars, toolboxes, books)!

  48. I do have a collection or two! i love old alarm clocks especially those that work and make loud ticking.

  49. Rebecca

    Other than fabric – I have a strange love for pens! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  50. my most intense collecting spree was in 5th and 6th grade when I fell victim to the Beanie Babies fad…and I still have a ton of them that my kids love, so not a total loss, right?

    Now I seem to be collecting awesome fabric, and I love finding mugs to have hot chocolate in. And cookbooks. I’m not much of a huge collector though.

    Thanks for another wonderful giveaway!

  51. Sharlyn

    Oooooooo definitely Fabric! My seven year old tells me I have enough, to which I reply: “Never! Never enough!”

  52. Eryn

    A better question would be what don’t I collect? Right now, I’m into collecting sewing themed objects… my best finds being a sewing machine teapot and and an iron shaped covered candy dish. Both equally awesome scores!! I love love love these fabrics – Sandi Henderson is amazing. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  53. I collect snow globes. The cheesier the better.

  54. Luckily the only thing I collect is fabric. If I had any other collections we might need a new house.

  55. Julie

    i have a lot of books, books on everything i am interested in, sewing, quilting, knitting, crochet, cooking, japanese language, yoga…..and of course fabric!

  56. I try to collect money but somehow it doesn’t work that well *sigh*

    i’m sure i have too many collections, however, one of my favorites are milk glass. thanks for the great giveaway!

  59. Jen

    I don’t really collect anything except for fabric and sewing books!

  60. Lizzie

    Love Zakka, the more I see! I am a hopeless collector of doilies/hotpads, the odder the better! Love this crips colloection you put up for the giveaway. Happy birthday week!

  61. I used to collect green depression glass. I also love Fiesta ware dishes, and pottery in general!

  62. i collect cats. at least, i have 3, so it feels like that sometimes.

  63. I collect buttons. When I was a kid, I would spend hours playing in my grandma’s giant tin of buttons she got from her mother. I loved hearing the stories behind special buttons, sorting them into groups, and spent a lot of time using them as math manipulatives. Unfortunatly during the early years of alzheimer’s disease she donated them. Ever since, I’ve been building my own collection.

  64. I am definitely a bit of a hoarder but the main thing I collect is fabric (and magazines)

  65. Well, funny enough I though I collected fabrics, but lately I came to the conclusion that is thread what I do collect!!!!. Thank you for the chance.

  66. Hmmm…I wouldn’t say I actively “collect” anything. But I have a habit of picking up old wooden boxes (cigar boxes, etc) & old tins at garage sales. I’m not entirely sure why!
    Could you please tell me what colours those solids are? I LOVE love love that Wallflowers print & just ordered some solids (Kona) I thought might ‘match’ it well. I hope it was those ones, they look great with it!

  67. Lots of things, old buttons, FABRIC, keys (yes, like your friend!), elephant statues (good luck symbols), vintage glassware, blue ball jars. Most are small collections (except for the fabric, of course)…

  68. I collect vintage linen teacloths and hankies. I am hoping to make a Large quilt for my bed with them in a sampler style.

  69. Theresa

    I collect Crewel Embroidery, My favorite one right now are 3 owls on a limb.

  75. I collect pottery vases. I have them on a shelf in my living room and they make me happy. I also use them for flowers and such.

  77. Andrea C L
