I know many of us here 'collect' many different things whether through a hobby or just because we just happen to like certain objects. I have collections which have started from just 1 purchase or gift and not something which I thought about collecting but over time it's just happened and suddenly I have a collection. So let us know what collections you have and how they came to be. .................................................. To start this off I'd like to show you my miniature perfume collection. My husband gave me a gift of a bottle of perfume for our first date (I still have it, although long empty) and he has always bought me more over the years. The trouble is I'm allergic to many of them and for this reason had to give them away. He then devised a plan.....before he would buy me a new scent, he would buy me a miniature to try first. So over the years even though I did give many away I've built up quite a collection of them. The first bottle he bought me Azzaro.....it was my/our favourite scent for many years and sadly they stopped making it. The bottle he gave me on our Wedding Day - Chanel No. 5 .....sadly I'm allergic to this one which is why it's still full all these years later. And here is the rest of my collection.
