Musing Mondays - Other hobbies?

If you'd like to play along on Musing Mondays, just click the button above to join in.

This week’s musing asks…

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

My answer...

Besides reading, I like to watch TV and movies. Is that a hobby? I sometimes cross stitch, but I haven't done that in awhile.

As for collections, I collect various different cat items like statues and knick knacks. Plus, I have a collection of dolls - different Barbies and porcelain dolls, also teddy bears. I haven't added to these collections in a long time, but I do have a nice amount that I already collected over the years.

How about you? Do you have other hobbies or collections?


  1. Hobbies other than reading....gardening in summer and shopping in winter LOL

  2. no collections for me!!
    I have seen that Hoarders show!

  3. I forgot to include my bears in my collections! Yes, I have quite a few. Some are in the garage.

    I love dolls, too; and here's MY MUSING MONDAYS POST

  4. I used to do cross stitch too but it is now difficult to see, even with glasses. Have a great week.

  5. I have never crossed stitched, but love the items others make. At this stage in my life I don't do much collecting unless books count.

  6. Yes I'd say tv and movies are a hobby, cos I love them too

  7. Oh my yes. I cross stitch, crochet, and knit a little along with making my own arrows and learning how to make long bows. As for collecting, I love anything Mickey Mouse, cows, turtles, and jewelry.

  8. Books, of course. Can't stop collecting them. I like movies and T.V. shows too. I have lots of puzzle books and bath products. I've got stuffed animals but haven't been accumulating more. Haven't done cross stitch lately, but I should. I can only do the stamped kind with X's. I love cats and have some. I've done scrapbooking and have rubber stamp supplies. I've also done stamp collecting (postage stamps).

    I collect magazines. I have too many, but the subscriptions I've been getting for a few years are all free from taking surveys online or entering codes online.

    I have lots of stuff; too much in fact!

  9. Aww I love teddy bears! I should have added stuffed animals to my list of hobbies, because I do love them, although I do not collect specific ones like a real collector would. I just think they're cute!

  10. My hobby outside of reading is working out. I work out about 2 hours a day, early morning and evening for the health benefits and to lose the weight caused by sitting and reading! I do not watch TV (hate it) so I have time. I live in 600 square feet studio so no collections possible for me. I dream of a house where I can have a display of my Mom and Grandmothers china and vintage items.

  11. I too collect cat figurines. I also collect post cards and books.

  12. I have an autograph collection, some of which are books, some on pictures and some on playbills. I collect books and owls also. I watch tv, have not done needlework in a bit but can embroider, do counted cross stitch, knit and crochet.
