Ah, I see. That's definitely something I could see worth treasuring-very cool. All of you have shared some really interesting and sweet things here.

. I do that constantly. It's really amazing how much I've changed just within the last 5 years or so-it really does show in my journals.

Sorry to hear that you lost your ring, by the way .

That reminds me-there's a picture of my grandma (my mom's mother-she was the one I was the closest to out of all my grandparents, 'cause one died before I was even born, and the other two died when I was really little, so I barely remember them) that I definitely treasure. I loved her so much. It's been nearly 10 years since she left us now...my god, has it been that long already? Anywho, yeah, she definitely still holds a special place in my heart.

Practicality: My bed. It's a queen size with one of those cushy pillow top layers. I got the mattress, box spring, and frame for $25 from a fellow college student who never even used it. I'd also say my bike and discman/mp3 disc player since I don't have a stereo or computer speakers and use it walking to a from school or work at least once a day.

Sentimental factor: some of my favorite leotards, my old grips, Nadia Comaneci autographs, and years and years of old gymnastics magazines.

Wow, that's a great one! I should say this too. Actually, the only piece I have is a Nazi SS medal (my gramps ended up with more Nazi memorabilia than American). My parents keep his folded flag, his uniform, his letters, and most importantly his pictures (a parade for the liberation of Paris, crossing the Rhine, POW SS men with all their medals and decorations posing for the Americans, liberating the Nordhausen concentration camp...). Someday it will all go to me though.

I can't choose between them, so I'll say a gold cross and a chair that belonged to my Grandmother. She died when I was only 12, so sadly I don't have that many memories of her, and much of the time she was sick and in a nursing home. But she was such a wonderful woman, and gave me so much unconditional love and acceptance.

My grandmother's wedding ring. We were very close--my personality is very much like hers!--and I miss her very much.

My late grandfather's copy of the New Testament. I also hold my guitar fairly dear to me.

I was waiting for Gibson Girl to post so I could follow with my most prized possession, my Gibson Hummingbird.

I have a music jewelry box that someone gave me a long time ago--that has a photo and autographed by the Beatles. Would not part with that. I also have a Jackie Kennedy doll with several very elegant outfits--would not part with that either. My mothers diamond wedding & engagement ring she gave me after my parents divorced--very beautiful (I have several diamonds that she have given me over the years--that I think my dad bought her as payment for his guilt--but that's another story.) My most true prized possession is my dog Pip--but you said no pets.

I have several pieces of jewelery given to me by my parents and grandparents and other relatives to mark special occasions that mean so much to me.

My christmas ornaments ... a hodgepodge of ornaments with no particular theme. Most of them have been gifts from other people ... in fact until I turned 18, I got a new ornament from my grandparents every year. For most of the year, I actually forget about them, but it's this time of year that always reminds me how much they mean to me. I have literally been in tears when I find that one gets broken.

My grandmother's wedding dress ... after my grandfather died and she was getting ready to move from her home to an apartment, I was were helping her clean out her attic. We came across her dress. She wanted to throw it out! I wouldn't let her. I had to take it out of the garbage bag (twice). It fits me perfectly ...

This is not an easy question since I tend to depreciate material values.
I have a few pieces of jewellery offered by relatives, that I never wear.
I also have a few things that my grandmother and my great grandmother left me and I don’t know if they’re worth much more than their memories. They’re just a few things because, as we (at home) saw the whole family tearing apart because of it, just got out and never knew what happened to most things (sad stories for human beings).
My father's war album of photographs in Africa is priceless to me as well as the family album.
But, the possession that is most worthy for me right now is my car because I can’t possibly think of living without it.
