Second: Animal skulls & Animal dead fetus/embryos (pics on demand)! Now, before you all run away because I scared the hell out of you, you must know this links up with what I study: Veterinary School/science and most pieces I brought home from school (except for the alligator, a gift from dad)
Third: My most expensive collection so far :s, my Dodo's (by Pomellato) a line of italian jewels. I especially love the little animals which fit into charm bracelets. Each animal (and there are alot! of them) has his own message. For example I have a little golden snail that means 'mon coeur, prends ton temps'. Actually the dodo-animals are meant to buy as a gift for your loved one(s). The pieces I own were gifts from mom and dad (thanks!) except for the snail which was a present to myself :)
And last but not least, i show you my mom's collection: Ancient drawings of roses in vintage photo frames. She is obsessed with this flower cause she collect not only pics of roses but also stamps, soap, books, perfume, theacups, note-paper,...and offcouse the flower herself: the front of our house is a real rose-palace in summer and the smell is phenomenal. My mom also knows the names of all sorts of roses by hart: in dutch, english and yes Latin also. Obsessed! I told you ;)
Now tell me, what do you collect??
PS: Please send all your elephants, skulls and dodo's, who are doomed to be forgotten on your attic anyway, to La Fille. Adress on demand. Thank you very much :p
