One of the fun things about spending time in my childhood home was going through old stuff. This year I binned my paper napkin collection, gave away my sticker albums and then became embarrassingly excited at the sight of my ehem.. eraser collection.
A few of them had become gooey and stuck together so I figured I had better show you before time catches up with the rest of my treasure ;) I am sure you're all glued to your swivel chairs right now so without further ado:
You should have seen my husband's face when he saw the tally on the side of my eraser box. The writing says "Amount of erasers" Check out the happy letters when I reached an (indescribably obsessive) 100 *sigh* Now you know exactly the kind of child I was :D
The racing car and rollerskate were always favourites because the wheels really turn an the striped clothes pin is fun too.
Looking through these I was making an ass of myself sniffing a number of the erasers. I remember some of the smells distinctly but over the years they have all faded. Was I sniffing some sort of rubber solvent back in the day? LOL
Since he has seen my rubbery loot every time I take the mickey out of my other half his answer is invariably: "At least I don't have an eraser collection". Clearly, a vain attempt to mask his envy. ;)
Google is my friend. :) Want to see another impressive collection? Check out this post on Tall Tara or go right to her Flickr eraser geek fest.
