Right now I am just in wine mode. For the last 10 years I have been buying wine, but it is getting a little bit out of control. What do you guys collect?

I collect logo balls from courses I have played. My wife collects shot glasses from places and states she has been to.

I also collect a lot more golf shots than I would like, but I don't keep them for more than a day or so. :smile:

If it counts as collecting, a box of 1,000 small wooden golf tees. The type that is more commonly broken (especially on par 3s).

Webkinz. Oh wait, that's not me--that's my kid. But they're breeding when I'm not looking and taking over the house.

Baseball cards, logo golf balls, pounds :crying:

I mostly collect Jose Canseco baseball cards. I've got a large binder full of his cards and another box full of cards. I've been a fan of his since the late 80's when he came on scene.

If I find a good logo ball I'll keep it. I've got some from a lot of different golf courses and places in general. I've got a ball from Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, St. Andrews, and I've got a couple from Hawaii, Canada with the RCMP logo on them, Green Bay Packers logo, Kentucky Wildcats and a bunch of others. I need a nice little shelf to display them on. I've also got a ball from my first round of golf. I'll probably keep my first Birdie, Eagle, and Hole in One (if it's not the same as the Eagle ball) if I ever get that lucky.

I've also got a few extra pounds I've been collecting. Doc says they need to go but I've worked so hard getting them I don't want to let them go. :smile:

guess what i do for a living?
They're beautiful! My great-grandfather was a carpenter in the old country. Brought all his tools with him when the family came over. My grandfather refinished them, and my father had (still has) them mounted on a wall, along with other family stuff. It's a great display, and so it yours. Old fashioned planes are the best.

I actually don't collect anything ... and I'm sort of proud of that (not that there's anything wrong with it).

I cant stop buying knives for the kitchen. I love them, I get stuck cooking every night so why not. Here is what Ive gathered so far.

Those knives are cool--the high priced stuff. But what's with the pink base for the stand mixer?

I thought pink was the new black.:confused2:

But really, I bought it for my girlfriend when we first got the house. She loves pink and she likes to bake, so I went for it. It doesnt look too bad in the kitchen.

I collect hat clip markers from courses that I play, and logo golf balls. And occasionally I will buy a hat if they have on that I like.

Guitars and such...that's why me buying clubs isn't nearly as bad as when I'm on music gear kicks!

It seems I collect hats but what really happens is I always forget my hat and wind up buying one to golf in and then it gets added to the collection.
