Look at it. Loooooook into the tiny painted on eyes of the cherub. Be hypnotized by it's saccharin cuteness and incomprensible ability to keep you staring, although you know that the right thing to do would be to look away.
This is my husband's most hated possession of mine. Every time we move and he sees me put it into a box he begs for me to put it into the bin instead. He's done this sort of begging 6 times now and still, yes still, the cherub/kitty/music box survives. Why? Why you ask, well I shall tell you.
My step dad is a very interesting, wonderful character indeed. He has tattoos galore, sometimes sports the long hair, is a former biker, former railroad worker and has even jumped from a train to avoid serious injury or possible death. He gave this cherub/kitty music box to me one Christmas not so long ago. I love to think of this man, in all of his rough exterior glory finding this little angel, carrying it to the check out desk and telling the nice lady behind the till that this is for his daugther in the UK. It is because of that image in my head, that I will never part from this very unlikely possession.
To be honest, everything on my Glue It To My Husband's Bedside Table list is something that I dearly love. (Thus the reason for the water soluble glue).
The Flagephant was a gift from my mother. I know she must have felt like her Christmasses had all arrived at once when she found this gem. When I was younger, I collected elephants. I think she remembered this and well, to find one decoupaged to within an inch of its life in an American flag, how perfect could a gift be! I didn't grow up with my Mom. I visited her a couple of months every summer, so really, any attempt to try to figure me out and what I like, I greatly applaud.
As for the Hay Heart, I received this from a good friend of mine in Switzerland. The knitted duck is from the guerilla knitting event from last year's Maker Fair in Newcastle and the small painted elephant is from a recent trip to Turkey.
Do you have anything in your posssession that would make people think 'Wait...What?! You own that?'
