How It All Began: How Collecting Items Became Collecting Experiences

I imagine I will now be asked the question as often as I am asked why I collect, “Why did you write this book?”

My first inspiration came from the encouragement of friends and relations who would hear the stories I would tell regaling about the adventures Gary and I experienced because of collecting and being the Guinness World Record Holder for the Largest Winnie-the-Pooh and Friends Collection. They would remark, “Wow, you should write a book”. After 15 or 20 comments I thought, what the heck?

If reading How It All Began can be the encouragement someone needs to follow their own passion, then collecting gets that much sweeter.

I admire people who follow a dream with commitment. I think about: artists, athletes, self-care enthusiasts, business owners, volunteers, animal lovers – the list goes on and on. The one trait they all have in common is following their passion and having fun along the way. That is how I describe collecting Winnie-the-Pooh.

I can say, with all my heart, the journey has been outstanding. Join Gary and me as we traipse across the world in search of Pooh.
