Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray

Share a photo of what “fray” means to you — it could be a tear in a favorite pair of jeans, a street rumble just about to begin, or a friend diving into an oncoming wave at the beach.  Don’t stand on the sidelines: join in and show us a photo that says “fray” to you. – The Daily Post

I’m not exactly what fray means but from the multiple definitions I’ve found online, its something along the lines of being worn out.

I’m a nostalgic person and a pack rat which means basically, that I keep a lot of stuff.  As I’m moving right now, a lot is being ripped away from my possession and honestly, it is time.  I have stuff from school that was almost 10 years ago, just to give you an idea.  So I own worn out stuff. Two things that hold dear to me and I’d never throw out is what I’m going to showcase today.

Exhibit A: My security blanket

My security blanket

Thanks to mom, even if she constantly threatens to throw it away, my security blanket is basically without any holes.  I don’t know if my boyfriend will be equally accepting of it but you can count on my night being immensely better when I have it around.  This little blanket as been with me since I was a baby.  I don’t fit so snug under it unless I tuck myself into a ball but it holds a special place in my heart, even though it is covered with scars. Now, it has a new friend.  My cat accepts it also and loves to sleep on it all the time 😉

Exhibit B: Snoopy


This collection of five colorful Snoopy puppy set has been with me for a long time also.  I know, there’s only four here.  Orange likes to wander off and disappear 😉 Poor Red has had that little scar for a little while now and we really need to fix it up again.

I don’t wear torn jeans but I do have torn objects so I figured I’m spot on for this Fray challenge 😉

What do you think? What comes to mind when you think of the word “Fray”?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

It finally arrived! YES!

It just gave me an excuse to take pictures of my “prized” possessions of MINE.

Lets see (looks around my room):

1) My Security Blanket (featured in a previous Weekly Writing Challenge)

2) Nintendo DS Lite

This is MINE! Regardless of all the new technology or newer models that came out, this was the first handheld console that I bought for myself.  Even though now its a little broken (and I`m sad), I still can’t give up on it just yet.

3) My Little Pony Collection

This is only part of my collection and I mean this is the original.  None of that big buggy eyes and gigantic head ones that they have now.  They only one you see here thats in the new one is the small one.

4) Puzzles

Puzzles are the one activity where I really don’t enjoy help with.  I like them to be MINE, my accomplisment, my work of art completely.
