"Collecting is, of course, for most collectors just a reasonably absorbing and largely harmless pastime, looked upon by an uncomprehending world as a kind of gentle madness."
- Stephen Calloway
I am a collector. I collect many things; beads, craft supplies (I haven't met one I didn't like), crafts (I'm a Jack of all trades, master of none) to name a few. My most favorite pastime is walking the beach, camera (and special stick - more on that another time) in hand searching for treasures. It doesn't matter if it's hot, cold, raining or snowing - I love the beach! I collect while I'm walking; sea glass, white rocks, shells, sand dollars. My FAVORITE treasures to collect are heart shapes.
I have lots of rocks,
shells (this one is a mussel shell),
(more sea glass),
and photos of items from nature that tickle my fancy;
rosa rugosa petal,
found on a walk at Crescent Beach State Park.

They make my heart sing. What makes your sing?
