Sorry, but i value my dogs most, then my kids baby pictures,and child hood pictures.


As I said I don't consider pets to be possessions otherwise those would be top of my list. 


To me they are my babies, my world so to speak, they are family, if my kids baby pictures ever got destroyed,i would greive over that, one son died in 1998,i look at them and wonder where the time went.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

I have a German Fairing pig in a car that was my grandfather's. He was born in 1900. My home. But I have other things that mean a lot to me, also.

So sorry for the loss of your son. I feel the same about my dogs. They are my babies.

[ Edited ]

A homemade apron that my mom made. I used to love watching her in the kitchen in that apron.  The print has little tea kettles, coffee cups, and various food items on it.  I love the pockets which are gathered circles rather than the usual square pockets.

 

The other is my dad's "gold" money clip.  He never carried a wallet and kept bills in this money clip.  When I was young it was like a beautiful piece of jewelry to me all gold and shiny.  I keep it in my wallet now.  It's a good luck charm for me.

 

I really have to add a third.  My guitar that I bought in 1970. I saved and saved for it and it was my first major purchase on my own. Then I taught myself how to play.  I'm pretty good now if I say so myself. And pretty proud of accomplishing that.

Re: What are your 2 favorite possessions

Besides people -- my home (patio home) and car (new Subaru); our most expensive possessions. We worked hard for both and I wouldn't want to be without these. I do like my cell phone and computer. Are retirement funds a possession? Worked for that as well. I'm giving practical answers. Just in that kind of mood today. Sentimental objects I hold dear would stay in my heart, even if I lost them.

Re: What are your 2 favorite possessions

I have my Grandmother's engagement ring.  I remember so clearly seeing it on her finger.  I had to ask for it at the time, and I am glad I did.

 

I would say my wedding rings, but they have not fit for a very long time.  It has been years since I have worn them, so I don't feel too attached to them.

 

Beyond that,  I would say all the photo albums and scrap books I have made other the years.  I would be really upset if something happened to those.  Whenever a hurricane is coming our way, that is the first thing I worry about.

Re: What are your 2 favorite possessions

An afghan my grandmother crocheted (she used to keep it on the back of her sofa in her living room) and a toy box my grandfather made me when I was about 2 years old.
