my place and yours : my collection

I remember collecting stickers, swap cards, mini soaps, erasers and badges when I was a little girl. I don't collect as many things these day but I do seem to have an ever growing brooch collection that's kind of just happened. I have posted most of these brooches before but I couldn't help playing along again with this weeks My Place and Yours hosted by Mikes.

oh I laughed when i saw this post. Again, this is what I was thinking of posting but you beat me to it! And I LOVED collecting stickers and tiny erasers when I was little. Don't know what I ever did with the erasers but the stickers decorated years of pen pal letters with friends.
Your brooch collection is very impressive, I love the little embroidered girl with bunny ears, so sweet!
have a lovely day...

What a wonderful collection. Do you still have your stickers and erasers? I especially love your Holly Hobbie brooch. Thank you also for dropping by my blog. Your comments always make me smile. xxx

Ooh that little owl with the balloon - is he waiting for someone? is he worried that he may have missed them?

You've reminded me that I have an old tin somewhere holding a soap collection from when I was little!

You have so many treasures. I love them. I would like to just sit and look at them all the time. I bet you have favourites. Do you?

What an amazing collection. Brooches are my weakness.

You have a wonderful collection, but how do you choose which one to wear, they are all so lovely!

I must say I'm jealous! I love badges. I have quite a few of them, but most of them are from my heady teen age years and I just can't bring myself to wear them anymore. Too loud, too political and provoking.
I like the timelessness of your collection.Yay!

I think my daughter would love your collection of Brooches, she loves quirky and unusual. My brooch collection tends to be more Vintage and shiny. A gorgeous collection!

I also collected erasers, stickers and soaps. I still have my soaps but they have gone a bit yuk , should just use them but it is like washing away the memories.
