I've loved stationery since I was a little kid. My favorites of all are interesting pens and pencils, many of which are photographed here. The second pic is a closeup of the pink pen with the fluffy keychain on it, since you can't see the rainbow well with all that floof.

itty bitty vials
For many years now, I've collected tiny souvenirs in vials (tiny bottles). There's a pretty long chain now, and highlights include sand from the beaches my mom and I visited on our road trip in 2019, a mini clay bunny a friend bought me, a tiny piece of sea glass I discovered on the beach in Malibu, blue glitter that was used to decorate spirit sticks when I was a pee-wee cheerleader, and samples of several metals I've acquired over time.

the Chain O' Stuff™
At some point I started stringing together all sorts of keychains, old necklaces, small toys, together into a conglomeration I now call "The Chain o' Stuff." Some highlights include the LEGO Ninja Turtles that once hung on a late friend's purse, a kitty cat toy that I had as a child and recently replaced (thanks Etsy!), a glittery bunny pin I've had since I was little, a Michelangelo art badge I got at a convention years ago, and a picture of the aforementioned late friend from an old Busch Gardens souvenir.
