I have this thing about stars. You know, the 5 pointed kind. I'm not sure how long ago it all started, but I remember when I was in 6th grade, I purposely took on the nickname of Star and my friends called me that by name for awhile. I don't go by the name Star these days but I do like stars.
I have lots of star decorations around my home and in my yard. I have a favorite sterling silver star necklace and star bracelet I wear more than any other piece of jewelry I own. I even have a little blue star tattoo on my ankle. I buy the silliest things just because they have stars on them like the star spoon holder on my cook top and our dinnerware set embedded with stars. I buy purses and shirts with stars on them.
I think it's fun to have a collection fetish. I have a friend who loves to collect rabbit figurines and another who collects old hats. My niece collects front page newspapers of special events and my son has a collection of baseball cards.
When I show homes, I see lots of things people collect - mounted fish, wine corks, shot glasses and matchbooks. The strangest one I remember seeing was a pottery jar for collectable items that said 'belly button fuzz'
Is there anyone out there that collects stars? I'm curious to know what other people collect.
