Let Your Blog Shine: Collection

Over on Facebook I’m part of a blogging group. On the Wednesdays of each month we have a group prompt that we’re all going to answer. This weeks’ prompt is…


I’m not sure when it started but I’ve been collecting VW Campervan and Beetle bits and pieces for a while now.

I think it was some time around when I learnt to drive because I wanted an old style VW Beetle (think Herbie). The chances of me ever having an actual one is very small so for now I collect toy cars and memorabilia.

This is almost all my collection minus about three bits which are stored elsewhere because of little hands that like to play with things.

I have two VW Campervan planter tubs for the garden and a RC VW Campervan as well. They were both for my birthday this year.

Salt and pepper shakers. I’m sure they could be used in the kitchen but I think I’d stick with them being looked at rather than used.

These three can be played with as they are actual toy cars. The two VW Beetles are by Matchbox. I’m not sure about the Campervan though.

So this is my collection, what do you collect? 

Maybe it’s You Are Here mugs from Starbucks like Shelby or maybe something quirky and strange. I’d love to know so please share in the comments.

      Cool! I have a Tardis one that my brother and his wife got me for my birthday (last year I think because there were comments about it never having any cookies in it because I’d eat them all).

      I don’t think you had mentioned that you liked it but thanks 🙂 I wasn’t sure and I’m still not 100% but so far I’ve had more positive comments than negative like the previous one and it’s definitely more user friendly so to speak.

      I had a handful of china thimbles but didn’t really get any further than that. We’re off to North Yorkshire for our holiday this year – I’ll have to keep an eye out for one for you 🙂
