I have a lot
My first teddy bear. I was born in Dec, about two weeks before Christmas, and my grandmother bought me what Iím pretty sure is a Steiff teddy bear. Which I vaguely recall used to squeak, but thatís long broken, and the button in its ear is gone, but there is a depression where it probably was. I played with it so its well worn, even kind of tattered in places, but I love it. like this one, and wow, Iím amazed at how much they go for now! http://www.rubylane.com/item/588596-H-00315/1950s-10-Inch-Shaggy-Frosty?utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=productfeed&gclid=CMKTsaCZ1r0CFW5eOgodKhEAqQ
A yellow dog my aunt knitted for me, also for my first Christmas. Its gross now, the foam stuffing is breaking down, and at one point I tried to color eyes on with a marker. I also have a photo of my mom holding me, and the dog, next to the Christmas tree. But Iíd like to try and restore it if I can.
A small, stuffed hedgehog my dad brought me back as a teen, from a business trip. I still recall the card, even though I think I donít have it anymore. He wrote in it ďone prickly thing deserves anotherĒ He and my mom used to joke how when I was a baby, I was prickly, and would even then, "push" her away when she tried to snuggle me.
I also have a really cool plastic cup, with a cat on it, probably from the 60ís, that was in my grandmotherís medicine cabinet, and now is in mine. Itís nothing special at all, but I remember loving it as a child, and now Itís mine. I keep my tweezers etc in it.
I also have a couple small furniture items my dad made for me, from kits, but now that heís gone theyíre not going anywhere. One is a small end table, the other a curio shelf.
I also have my dadís HS ring and my great grand-fatherís signet ring. His name began with the same letter as mine, so while itís a manís ring, I could wear it. Itís gold ,with black onyx, and an old English ďEĒ on top of it. I also have my great-grandmotherís wedding band, which is a wide gold band, with both of their initials ďsolderedĒ on top, on top of each other, so its kind of a cool design, and if you look carefully, you can make out each of their initials.
I have a ton of little things too, some silly, and some more meaningful, but to me, they ALL are.
