As a child I never really liked dolls or collected anything. I enjoyed craft projects and at an early age would build TV sets, stages, and altars out of cardboard and construction paper and paint them and adorn them with flowers, bows and anything I could find which would be fitting for their purpose. I also made puppets and loved to draw and color. I was actually pretty talented in these areas until I grew into my teenage years. Then I became more interested in boys, music and junk food :D.
As I got older, my creative talents as a youngster diminished and I began collecting plates, music boxes and dolls. It was my way of buying art that I could appreciate and afford. The doll shown above is "Little Dove" which was created by artist Gregory Perillo. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her with her little papoose on her back. She is just adorable.
Now, I have grown to a point in my life where less is more and I am shedding my material goods with the exception of sentimental items and my Hong Kong collection. Of course throughout my life I always wrote poetry and always collected many books of which I still have today.
My two questions this week are:
1. Did you collect anything as a child?
2. What did you collect?
