I don't know anyone who doesn't collect something. My sister collects milk glass and colored glass jars to name a few and my husband collects eagles and one of my daughter-in-laws collects Boyd's Bears. I collect two things that came about accidentally. One is McCoy Pottery and the other is bells. Many, many years ago my dad gave me a bell for my birthday. From then on people started giving me bells and then I bought a few myself. I don't collect state bells or souvenir bells and for a bell to get my interest it has to be unusual either in color or design.

It's hard to believe that one little bell turned out to be a whole collection. I don't know how many I have. I've never counted them. I know some of you are thinking that these are just dust collectors. You are absolutely right. Aren't all collections?
