After reading Jay’s collection post and speaking with her on things we both collected it inspired me to make a post about some of the things that I too collected.
It would be impossible to capture everything in life that I show an interest for or have started to compile together yet maybe never picked up on or just have bits and pieces to where it’s hard to call a ‘collection’.
These are just a few of the Funko’s me and my husband own. Most are either put away that we have yet to pull out from our move or are randomly placed throughout our home. As you see, my pops make it out of the box so I can display them on my desk at home. Hagrid and The Mad Hatter are definitely my favorites. I really enjoy gathering these as it shares both our interest and it’s fun scouting them out together.
Side note: Yes, that is Sherlock, (mine), John Watson (Hubby’s)
Pulling out my tub of Bath & Body Works Pocket Backs & Germ-X’s, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I’ve dwindled down my stash quiet a bit. Not by using all of it but mostly gifting it as I knew I would never get through it all myself.
These were my go to when going into a B&BW when they were 5 for $6 which is how I wracked up on them so quickly. Not to mention I am a bit of a germ freak. Clearly my favorites used to be Sparkling Pink Champagne & Pumpkin Marshmallow Latte.
To help keep this post waxy related, I figured it would be best to also share my candles! These are stored in my bedroom closet for easy access.
Brands include Bath & Body Works, Diamond Ring Candle, Yankee Candle and Front Porch Candle Co. 16 candles in total which is a number I’m comfortable with instead of that number being piled up in the 30’s or 40+.
My favorite Bath & Body Work candles are London Calling and Marshmallow Fireside.

Games, games, games! Love them!
Another really fun thing me and my husband enjoy collecting and playing together are board games! I love the uniqueness and story behind each game. We used to have a game store in town that we visited often before it closed down that we really miss.
My recommendations from above would be:
- Love Letter (Red Draw String Bag)
- Love Letter Hobbit Edition (Green Draw String Bag)
- (Not pictured, forgot it) Love Letter Batman Edtion
- Jaipur- (right side, beside Ticket to Ride)
- Ticket to Ride
- Sheriff of Nottingham
- Monopoly Deal
Other Interest of Mine That I Collect Almost Anything In:
Wizard of Oz
Anyone else have a weird obsession with these little refrigerator magnets? The more I can get on my fridge to look at; the better! I should have taken them off my fridge and laid them out in one single picture but that would have disrupted all of the pictures and knick knacks we have adorning our fridge.
Just stare at it.. go on, take a moment. I’ll come back.
You had your moment? Good. It’s beautiful!
When I laid eyes on this gorgeous plate while shopping on my honeymoon in a little store we had stopped in to check out which I believe to now named Dicks 5 & 10, I knew it was coming home with me! This is also where I picked up my Wizard Of Oz magnet. The plate is proudly displayed on a frame stand on my kitchen counter.
Anything Alice & Wonderland
If you have read my blog for an length of time you also know I have a thing for Alice & Wonderland. Pretty much anything Whimsical. Dorothy and her wild tornado, colorful adventure to Oz than to Alice and her crazy adventure down the rabbit hole speaking to inanimate objects, growing and shrinking while being chased by an evil queen… wait why do I like this again? Though Mad Hatter is enough to stick around for sure!
Funny enough, this plate was also purchased on my honeymoon! Two to be exact. Also not allowed to be feasted upon.
The Statue Of Liberty
Oddly enough since I’ve never been to New York, I am very fascinated with the Statue of Liberty. I love seeing pictures and learning more about Lady Liberty. I’ve always wanted a little greenish/blue mini statue you always see as a souvenir.
The one I have made due with for now is supposed to be a ornament from Dr.Who of the Weeping Angel when the angels took over. I’d prefer a real one though.
Recently I was surprised to find a Statue of Liberty puzzle at the Dollar tree so I also swooprd that up to frame soon.
A little all over the place with my craziness but it is what it is! What are some of your interest and collection’s? Let me know!
