Few days ago, I read an interesting post by Didi Wright, she was talking about someone she knew that collect so many things related to their dogs (check out her post here). It reminded me of a post I had for quite some time in my draft post. I never really sure whether to publish it or not, seeing her post made me decide to finally published it (with some changes).
I have 3 things that totally related to Kame and Kroten, I have shared them all in either this blog or my personal blog.
You might think that I am too proud of them but I think my feeling is like any mother with their own children. Mothers always collect something that shows their children’s progress. This case is perfectly applied to this decoration that had been shared by Kame before; the title was They Are Finally On The Wall. These are Kame’s first scutes. I framed it and hang it on my bedroom’s wall. (To know what scute is, you need to read her post)
The next item I have on my wall is Kame’s drawing. It was drawn by my best friend, Meri. Kame has also shared about this in her post titled Drawn by a Genius where she also put the original picture.
This last one is my special made bookmarks. I am a book worm, I always read a book on my way to work or heading back home…as a book worm, I need few bookmarks ready to use. I have shared this idea in my own post titled New Bookmarks. I edited Both Kame and Kroten’s pictures, print it in photo paper and then cover it with laminating plastic (that is what we call it here in my country). I have made 3 bookmarks and will make new ones when all three of them had broken.
Here are the original files in the post I have linked back.
You have seen 3 items that related to Kame and Kroten… Now, let’s see items that related to turtles in general.
Here are my 3 turtle brooches, I use it for my Jilbab (Muslim’s Veil). I only bought the one on the right, the other two (the blue one and the flower looking one) are given by my best friends. They knew how much I love turtles.
These two stuff dolls were something I bought because they looked cute. It’s quite hard not to buy something turtle-ish because they always look so cute.
I love this picture, Kame looks like asking Kroten “what’s that silly thing on your shell?”
The last one I have is a cute turtle eraser. I don’t use it to erase anything. I just like to have it and I put it on my bookshelf.
I used to have a cute turtle clay ornament, my brother gave it to me, but it was lost when we moved to our current house.
You have seen my turtle collection. Beside that collection, I also use their pictures as my mobile phone wallpaper as well as my computer.
So…now, let me ask you all…Am I obsessed? Have I overdone it? Have I turned into Didi Wright’s acquaintance?
