We're the same - zero clutter. We don't plan on buying many souvenirs, per se, but we have started collecting things we find that remind us of each trip.

At Lakeside Resort we found a small plastic duck "swimming" in the lake next to our boat; that now resides in the shower. I also found a silver quarter on the ground at a campsite in Mojave - it just happens to be my birth year and lives in my wallet as a good luck piece.

Then, of course, there are all the lumps I find on the top of my head when I forget to duck under the slides. I remember exactly where I was and how I found each one. Those memories will last a lifetime

I was going to get a dream catcher during our Yellowstone vacation, but the ones I saw were not made in America or by Native Americans. So that's out. However, I did get a nice 5" kachina doll for the nick-nack shelf. Also, I picked up a Yellowstone throw blanket.

Key chains are what I buy to remind us of our visits. Hang them in a box picture frame in the rv. Open the "door" and swap them out occasionally. Also have a small wooden sign that says "I understand. I just don't care" over by the table picked up from a tiny shop in GA. T-shirts in the closet and hats in a drawer- that's DH thing. I unload some to stick house and make room for more since he has to have one or other from everywhere.

Our almost $300K coach came with two paintings, well not really. They were at least artwork with a frame. They were literally foam board, sprayed with paint and then some paint thrown onto it. The coach came with two of these. The first one we replaced with a photo taken at one of our favorite spots, Yosemite. We had it framed under glass and replaced the $6 artwork Newmar had installed. We replaced the bedroom one this week, with a signed print of the Grand Tetons. I was going to throw away the Newmar "artwork", but decided I may need to replace it when we sell the coach some day.

To my great suprise, I actually found one of the old style window stickers for the state of Colorado in a tourist trap shop in Estes Park last year. I had to have it.

We're not much on knick nacks. However, we do have two little girls and spend a lot of time taking them to Disney. The last time we were there I saw this painting in the art store at Epcot and decided we had to have it for the RV. It's just too fitting......

My wife has taken to picking up small stones while walking on the beach. When she finds one she likes - it gets added to decorative jar that's filled with water - and that sits on the ledge next to the dining room table. The water brings out the colors of the stones. It's a collection that's small, natural, not at all gaudy - and wonderfully cheap!

We just got our MH and the artwork is definitely not distinctive nor us. I'm changing it out with oil paintings/artwork I did recently. It's lighter than all that glass. I did pack away the original bedspread in a large space bag for storage. Not my style. Also, I love (and taught) digital scrapbooking so I hope to document our travel experiences with layouts in a binder. I hope to keep things fairly simple except at Halloween and Christmas. Gotta have some fun!

Pressed pennies. I drill two holes in them and tack them onto a finished piece of wood.
