Day 19 - What Do You Collect?

Nothing specific - yet if you saw my house, or my room at Mum & Dad's you would think you were in a crowded museum!

I suppose, to be truthful, I like souveneirs - memories of people and places. I love looking at the things around me, and being reminded of good days (or bad) ... the story of my life surrounds me.

I also have things from the family - some wine glasses from my great Grandfather's pub, my grandfathers medals, pictures from my grandparents houses, a broach that my Grandfather bought his mother when he went to war in 1915, etc.

The thing you will see a lot of is giraffes. I have always loved them, and friends who know that have never been short of a present idea. My smallest is in Venetian glass (that I bought on The Rialto Bridge, Venice) and is 2" tall ... my tallest is Portious ... that my friend Toni bought me the Christmas after Jaykub died -

Portious & Jiffy -

Not a great picture, as I should have knelt down ... but you get the idea.
