Welcome to Monday Potpourri:  today, we’re featuring Musing Mondays, at Should Be Reading.

This week’s musing –courtesy of– asks…

Do you have any hobbies outside of reading?
Or do you collect anything?


I guess you could say that my blogging is a hobby, although I consider it to be an outgrowth of my writing, which is my work these days.

But when you love something, is it really work?

Some of you may know that I have a lot of blogs.  I love redesigning them and change the headers and themes…a lot (I have had as many as twenty, but have stayed the course at twelve for awhile now).

I love Bloggiesta (coming this weekend), as it offers an official opportunity to make blog changes.  I’ve already planned out some of what I’m going to do with my Serendipity blog (I do a different blog each time).

Collections.  Have you met me?  lol

My Potpourri site is dedicated to collections and other quirky aspects of my life.

Here are a few:

Dolls and Stuff by Mary Engelbreit
Boyds Dolls
Hats and Handbags
More Dolls
Coca Cola Stuff

Then, of course, there are the fairytale things from Jim Shore.  And clocks.

Fairytale Images…and Quirky Clocks

That’s enough for today.  My daughter says I’m a hoarder, which is probably why I collected about six books (fiction and nonfiction) about hoarding.  I concluded that I’m not a hoarder, but a collector.  That works for me.  lol

What about the rest of you?  What rocks your world?
