Lately I have been slightly obsessed with the idea of collections. I thought I’d start a mini blog series about collections, which my husband has decided to call “The Collectorials”. I have a few collections that I’ll be sharing, and I’ve got a few collections that I wish I had! (Does any one else dream of collecting certain things??)
The first collection that I will be sharing is probably my oldest. My coins! I keep them on my dresser in my favorite little jar.
I started collecting coins when I was in 6th grade. I was walking down the hallway at school and I found a neat coin on the ground. I was fascinated, I felt like I had found a treasure! I got a lot of my collection from friends who went on cooler vacations than I did, and I bought some of them at the mall.
I love coins with holes in them, and ones with really different writing. (You know, like symbols instead of letters. I wish I could read them!) The “coin inside a coin” style is neat too. The Aruba coin is the one that started it all.
It’s been a long time since I’ve added to my collection. In fact, it’s gotten smaller over the years as I’ve moved across the country multiple times… I used to have some really great ones! I wouldn’t mind expanding this collection someday. When I have some extra money to buy money! (It seems so silly when you put it that way.)
