The artwork for the family room is the collection of Ansel Adams' black & white matted prints displayed on glass shelves.

Your list is wonderful! Will you share some details?


Movie soundtracks? Do you have favorites?

Records? LP's? - 45's? - 78's? Favorites?

Thank you!

Concert and cinema tickets -- I've got them all! Since I first stepped foot in the theatres. Penguins, and I used to collect Iselin Steiro and Stam editorials/ads. I also have a crazy collection of Angelina Jolie magazine covers, although it wasn't a conscious decision to collect her. I stopped when she was in Vanity Fair with Keira, Scarlett & Tom Ford on the cover. I hated that cover so much I couldn't bare buying it, despite her presence.

Coins, the non-standard UK ones, from Guernsey and so on, because of the pictures they have on them of ancient monuments and animal life.

Also, any old coin that I find - frequently when you're walking across fields that have been recently turned, some old sixpence and a lot of pottery sees the light of day again, and while the pottery can stay put, the coin gets a new home. The local museum has a whole section devoted to it - numismatics - but looking at them in a display case isn't anywhere near as much fun as randomly finding them in the world around you, and wondering whose hands they've been in before yours.
