Time to admit it. They brought me a lot of joy... they comforted me in less-happy times... they brought a smile to my lips many times...
But NOW it seems they are invisible, and I resent the chore of cleaning and displaying them.
Hopefully they will bring happiness to the next person, my experience of owning them is done, and now I must let go.
(Very ornate ink dish from a dear childhood friend)
(Tea figurines from my childhood)
(My best, favourite - and last- china unicorn from my former collection)
(Collectable Wizard crystal figure... my mom got it as a growing up present over 2 decades ago... alas, he's not my style anymore)
Bye Bye old friends. I will remember you fondly. I release you without regret.
