One of the boxes I unpacked in the garage contained what's left of my ornament collection.
I did have quite a few more things, but I gave them away before I moved to Canberra (I took photos of everything before I gave them away). Actually just looking over the photos now I suppose maybe I could have kept more of them. I think the little plastic dogs I should have kept. And the painted egg. And the large horse. And the dolphin kinetic balancer .. annnyhoo..
This is what I did keep:
The larger swan I'm pretty sure was a gift from Donna Bonnefin early in primary school. When the smaller one came along it went well with it.
The penguin I got on Philip Island in 1990.
The dandelion in resin I bought up at Randwick a year or two before I left Sydney. The Faculty Dean had one like it on his desk that I drooled over every time I saw it, so when I saw them for sale I snatched one up at ~$50 I think it was. Apparently they wreck a lot of dandelions before they get one that works. I'll post a better pic of it some time.
The squirrel (squirrel!!) I got in Disneyland in 1983. It was a souvenir that I chose when the parents said we could choose something.
The larger of the two horses was a replacement for one of my earliest ornaments. I got the original in either kindergarten or first class. He was called Bow (or Beau?) and I took him to school for show and tell. Three points if you can get what happened. We tried to superglue his broken leg back on, but it never really worked. A year or two later I got a replacement! And some time after that got the smaller one.
The pet rock has bit of scaly nose that looks a lot like a lizard. I wrote a creative writing piece in English one year about her. I remember the first line was "Liz was a rock".
The yellow bouncy thing I also got in primary school. For some reason it reminds me of Bryony Walker.
The crystal elephant was a gift from Guy when we were dating.
