Is there something that you just can't leave? Something that followed you along the years..Or in your travels..

As for me, my old teddy bears follow me everywhere I go, I don't feel home without them.

Yes, I'm still using (not very often) a sewing basket I've had since a child. It's falling apart now.
And a manicure set (often) I've had since I was about 16 - no new tools have yet bettered the nail files, scissors and tweezers it contains. The case itself is also falling apart, but not the tools themselves.
Regards,
Jenny.

music Jul 13, 2007

What follows me around is my music - from cassette players to now my lovely iPod. Music is what keeps me company wherever I go, without it Im lost.

books! Jul 13, 2007

The need to read is always there. I am always curious.
You could call it the intellectual version of an unquenchable wanderlust!

Swiss pocket knife Jul 13, 2007

It proved its usefulness on more than one occasion. It has a (very limited) number of tools, and it is a very good knife of course. It really is an 'all-purpose'-item and I've carried it with me for more than 20 years. I've grown so attached to it, I almost forgot to put it in my suitcase once when flying to the USA. That would have gotten me into trouble!

Have a nice weekend,
Margreet

books and.... Jul 13, 2007

When I travel I always take with me my book with Emily Dickinson's complete poems. I had an old edition, but it was falling apart and I ended up getting a new one from B&N.




Oh, yes, also the less poetic tweezers (we don't want any stinkin' unibrows like Frieda Kahlo, you know).

Family pictures and a small stuffed animal Jul 13, 2007

A couple of family pictures and a very small stuffed animal attached to a key chain, which resembles my beloved dog. He passed away last year after 15 years of unconditioned love and friendship from both parts, and every time I look at it I think of him with a smile.

music, books... and my cat! Jul 13, 2007

From Oxfordshire to Rome, holidays in Sicily, 3-year sojourn in Luxembourg, back to Rome 3-4 times a year, on down to Sicily again, up to the new house in the Lazio countryside... he's always with me!

A Zippo lighter Jul 13, 2007

Battered and worn, it used to be navy blue but now you can see the underlying brass...

Travellin' Teddy Bear Jul 14, 2007

I have a small (maybe 7 cm tall) teddy bear that I got when I was maybe six from a nice lady that used to baby sit me.

I carried it around with me in my back pocket whenever I went for a long trip.
Now it's almost flat, most of its fur has rubbed off and its button nose fell off a long time ago (I painted the spot black with a magic marker. I don't take it with me anymore. It earned a rest home with my daughter's stuffed animals, so it doesn't feel rejected
