    This look like a fun thread.

    In addition to the plant, reptile, and book collections, I have a few others.

    Framed snake skins. So far, I have one of almost every snake I own. Still waiting on a couple new acquisitions to shed.


    I learned how to frame spiderwebs. I now have a few hanging around my house.


    Articulated black bear bones I found while hiking, and reassembled myself


    Mounted Butterflies (Urania leilus) I found at a thrift store. Removed the godawful silk flowers, and put some bones and crystals in there instead.

    I also collect teapots, and have found a couple strange and wonderful ones:




    "Potion Bottles" usually available around Halloween. I store ashes of animals after cremation in them.


    Dolphin Jawbone:


    Pre-Ban Tortoiseshell fan.

    I was in Jim Callahan's (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/app...ames-callahan/) place today ! He has an INTENSE collection, some really unbelievable stuff ! Fossils, antique weapons, Asian and Medieval furnture, minerals (including the biggest tektite I've ever seen), kapalas, Pre Columbian and ancient Asian pottery and other artifacts.......... A small museum stuffed into a small Chelsea loft apartment. I'm going back in a couple weeks, I'm hoping he'll let me take some photos of some of his collection.

    Some of my Carnivorous Plant and Orchid related antiques. Mostly just trinkets, bobbles and prints (many of which still need to be framed).









    Canada sure appreciates their Sarracenia purpurea.......


    A thimble.


    Some kind of token.


    A lapel pin.


    Stamps.


    A bud vase.


    A tea cup.



    Some antique prints I've picked up over the years.....








































    Some temperate orchid paraphernailia........























    Some very old herbarium specimens of Calopogon tuberosus and Pogonia ophioglossoides respectively.

    Thanks for sharing those! The botanical prints are wonderful, especially the black and white one showing a Utric eating a fish
    I was wondering what was up with all the Sarracenia paraphernalia from Newfoundland, and Google tells me it's the official flower of the province.
