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”?
