My Place and Yours - My Collection



Hi there everyone I thought I would play along with another fun challenge over at Pip's today. The theme this week is My Collection which was chosen by Kate over at Fox's Lane. So I thought I would share with you my childhood collection of rubbers/erasers. I haven't added to it for a long time but I love it because it holds many memories. My Nan and Pop travelled overseas in the 80's and brought back with them lots of erasers from their travels which I remember quite vividly. I won't tell you exactly when otherwise you might just guess my age (lol) but I thought I would share the photo of myself with my collection when they first arrived back from their travels. I can't remember what started the collection but I enjoyed finding unusual erasers, pretty ones and ones that smelt nice too! So thank you for stopping by and looking at my collection and I hope to see you again soon.

  4. Oh how I wish I had kept my rubber collection. Those 80's ones were the best! My daughter has started a collection but the ones these days just aren't the same. I LOVE your collection.

  9. The juxtaposition of your two photos is fantastic! How lucky you are that you kept your rubbers all this time.

    I kept mine too, though my collection is much, much smaller. You can see them here if you care to. xx

  15. Oh wow... what a great thing to collect! I always loved erasers as a child. To be honest.... I still want to go into every Hello Kitty store I come across! I still love erasers, pens, pencils, etc... !!

  16. Wow, what a flash back! I collected erasers when I was younger too! I still have them tucked away somewhere. I always loved the smell and the colours. Thanks so much for the walk down memory lane.
