Most people have some kind of a hobby or a thing that they are particularly fond of. Sometimes these things turn into healthy (or not so healthy) obsessions. And that’s how the world’s most interesting collections are born.

Do you have a collection you’re proud of? Share your pictures here!

My Mom Collects Sand From Beaches All Over The World

My parents collected shells for decades. When they stopped beach combing in their later years, my mother donated almost all of them to her church. One of the other church members converted a cheap mirror into a beautiful showpiece with a number of them. My mother bought it and it hung in their entry way for years. A cousin now owns that piece.
