My Orchid collection. I have a small windowed room leading to my patio filled with rare varieties. They are utterly gorgeous and have amazing detail. At parties, I always catch guests lingering there and then going back for seconds and thirds!

A letter from Jacqueline Kennedy shortly after the assassination. It is signed by her, complete with franking privilege on White House Memorial stationary. White with black around the edges. She also included the Mass card from his funeral. A 100yr plus Persian rug from my grandmother. A thank you note from Kate Hepburn.

A coin collection of American and English/UK coins, plus some from elsewhere. I have a few ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greek pieces that have been authenticated. But I don't have anyone to give it to and selling (eventually) would have to be done piece by piece, which gets tedious.

It was worth about $30,000 the last time I had it appraised for insurance.

As an artist, my most valuable possessions are my imagination, and ability to think of interesting, creative solutions to whatever problems or puzzles I'm facing on any given project.

I've spent more time in my imagination, than anywhere else. It started due to an unsatisfactory childhood (quite frequently, I escaped there as a child), and became an asset.

My Sligh Bob Timberlake Mission style grandfather clock. I bought it about 20 years ago. A really beautiful 'floor' clock that announces it presence throughout the day although it does have a night feature that silences the chimes from 9:45p until 7:00a. I consider it a statement piece and it's restrained style get lots of complements to those who visit.

The attached image is for reference to the clock and is not my home.

A collection of letters written in the trenches in France during the First World War. The man writing them sadly didn't survive. They're full of scenes that he saw and his feelings stuck in the trenches. He complains that the 'Hun' don't fight fair and that he's craving sugar so can someone send him a cake? He also says that there are a lot of rumours of 'men who have gone insane' wandering round in the woods and killing anyone they come across. One stand out is him seeing a friend cut in half and just having time to say 'I think I may have to sit down' before dropping dead to the floor. Very moving and tragic letters. Sent to my husbands grandmother.

I bought a Robert Longo print at an auction about 20 years ago. I think I paid $1400. I found the same print offered online—asking $40,000. Not too shabby.

I have a collection of letters from a Hilter Youth turned Nazi officer who served in the Afrika Korps during WWII, was sent to a POW camp in the Texas Panhandle, and repatriated back to Bavaria. He constantly wrote to my Great Grandmother referring to her as "My dear sister" but she never mentioned having a brother, and his surname is not the same, as her maiden name. The letters span from 1930 to 1956 the year he died. The go from entirely in German then gradually switch to fluent English. I keep telling myself I should donate them, but I don't even know who would want such a collection.

The era when he was in the POW camp are funny, because all he did was bitch about having to be in Texas. He said in one letter, that he would rather be dead in Africa than have to endure another day in Texas. I currently live in Dallas, and I find those the most relatable.

Me too r22! Real life was much too dull and utilitarian, so I would escape into imaginings of being a Hollywood star or living in a mansion and how I might decorate it. I developed a vivid imagination.

I wish you'd tell us what productions you worked on or show us some of your designs some day. I respect your right to anonymity, however.
