I wonder why it is I collect these little things. I know many people would regard my collecting as bothersome cluttering, but this does little to hinder my habit.
I like graphics, presentation, memories, details, sentiments and colours and all these things resonate with my urge to collect things…
Tickets and travel cards. These all have memories and adventures attached to them and I cannot bring myself to part with them. The travel cards will be used again so I cannot class them as clutter. Yay!
Character stamps. Hello Kitty from Japan and Moomin from Finland. Much more interesting than the Queen’s head in my opinion.
Jokers. I started collecting these about 12 years ago but life was troublesome for me back then and events conspired that would result in me losing a collection of 20 fine cards. My collection was revived by two friends who gave me a wonderful selection of Jokers on my last birthday and I have continued to collect then again since.
Jokers joined the pack of modern playing cards at around 1863. I was inspired to collect them after reading Jostein Gaarder’s Solitaire Mystery.
