Question #11 – What do you collect or have you collected?

Okay, take a wild guess!! Right! TURTLES!!! I don’t collect real ones, although back in the 80’s I did have a red-eared slider for awhile. But he died. I never have owned a real one again.

I have been collecting turtle things since I was in high school. I have so many turtle figurines that I had to pack some up, because I don’t have a special place to display them in our little house. I have stuffed sea turtles, and I had a bulletin board with a huge turtle on it who was wearing a hat with a flower in it. That was back in high school. It hung in my room for years, and I now realize that I have drawn turtles similar to it hundreds of times, just little doodles, a turtle wearing a hat with a flower in it.

Also when I was in high school, my mom took a ceramics class. She made a turtle planter for me, because I used to like to keep small plants in my bedroom. It has tennis shoes on its feet. My oldest brother even painted the details on them bright yellow so they would stand out. 🙂
But I don’t want to display it outside, because it would probably end up broken somehow, and I don’t really have anywhere to put it out in the house right now either. So it sits in a closet for now….:-(

Oh well, have a great day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. Soda bottles, little frog statues, coins and stamps but in a minor way. I got rid of the soda bottles.


  2. Wow, Patsy, my best friend in Virginia has a huge collection of turtles also! I always loved looking at all of them. 🙂


  3. For me it is owls. I can’t get enough of them. My daughter seems to have inherited this too as her favorite blanket is her owl one. She won’t go anywhere without it.
