  • I have a 110 yr old (or there about) statue of the Virgin Mary... I have had her for about 19 yrs now... I told my great grandmother that I liked her and she went and changed her will, so that I would get her and not my sister... (my sister got something else)

  • I have a whole stack of Headbanger's Ball VHS tapes from the 1980s/1990s. That's how I spent my Saturday night. Taping Headbanger's Ball. Of course, I don't have a VCR to play them anymore, but that's neither nor. It's something of sentimental value. I also have a LeWatch from the 1980s. I keep it because it's the last gift my mother gave me before she died.

  • I have a book called "A Baby Starts To Grow", which is out of print now. My parents gave it to me when my little brother was born. I must have read it a thousand times. I treasure it especially now that I am studying to be a midwife. =)

  • All of my Muppet Babies & Dr. Seuss books. I've had them in sets for as long as I can remember. I always treating my books so well. I've had them since the 80s and now I have them for my son.

  • Most of my stuff is pretty new (I've only been out of my parent's house for 3 years, since I was 18, and I didn't have much when I left). Does a kitty count? I've had my oldest furbaby for almost 6 years. Other than her, I just have pictures that are older (and two bookshelves, but I have no idea how I ended up with those lol). I got her when she was about 6 weeks old. She was this teeny, tiny little ball of fluff at my aunt's house and she attached herself to me while we were visiting after Christmas. I looked at my aunt and I told her and my mom that I wasn't leaving without the kitten. I was shocked that my mom actually let me take her with me. She's been with me and a total mommy's girl ever since then.

  • My oldest dd. I've only had her for 4 years but when she was about 9 months old, mine and my parent's apartments burned to the ground. I got out with her and a diaper bag, which I no longer have.
