100 Photos Meme: day 12

I've been stuck in a seemingly endless void of O2 customer care for an hour (please, please, just put me out of my misery... *sob*), so I thought I'd catch up with another photo of this meme.

I've got to be honest, all my possessions are prized possessions. When I moved here, I took with me the things I really love - I still have a lot of stuff back home to sort through, but what I have here are the things I really wanted with me from the get go. I've deliberately left pets out of this (I am uncomfortable with the idea of calling a pet a 'possession'), so it was a toss-up between my favourite books, statues and art. Also maybe my drinking horns. And my mugs. And...

I guess I'm a bit materialistic. ;)

So here is a collection. We have:
- my favourites in my old book collection. The little brown one is the oldest, at 196 years; the blue, Sea Wolf, is my favourite book of all time; and the bottom one, Pilgrim's Progress, is the most I've ever spent on an antiquarian book. Emphasis on the most I've spent; The Sea Wolf is a first edition so I suspect is worth an awful lot more, but it was a gift and I don't want to ask how much it cost!
- my statue of Pepsi, who I bought several years ago now from the Northern Light company and had painted to look like my mare. Sadly they no longer provide this service. She's only recently come down, because I didn't want her to travel with me on the train in case she got broke! Also I was kinda hoping to have the real thing by now. :P
- commissioned artwork of two of my Somnium characters. Middle portrait is by Hibbary, the other two are both by Jezzabelle. I LOVE character artwork, omg. It's so cool to see them brought to life. :) I would like more - of different characters, and also illustrated scenes - but of course artwork of this caliber is quite expensive, and rightly so. So I will save and I will wait. :3
- what's even better than artwork of your characters? A freakin' model!! This is an OAK model of my boy, Miri, made by Sovae (she has an Etsy, but it's closed for summer atm so check out her FB pictures instead). She even made all his jewelry for him. He's a few years old, now, and I'm still amazed whenever I see him.

That sounds like a cool meme to do, I'll follow your tags for the complete one. Man, I am going to struggle with that question too ... I have so many possessions that are dear to me.
I don't own any antique books, but I have a few that were quite pricey and today I roll my eyes at myself that I ever spent that much money on books.

Dang, you're faster than me! I just scrolled through the first days and was about to ask if you could link me to the complete set of prompts! =) I did a 365 project a few years ago too, but this seems to be a cool thing as well - nabbed and saved!
Aug. 28th, 2013 11:14 am (UTC)
Oh cool - I've been doing a 365 project for the past year and a half, did you do yours on LJ or on the 365 website? My page is here (http://365project.org/herecirm/365) - it's a lot of fun and you meet some great people, so I'd recommend it if you're thinking to do it again. :)

I only did it 2009 and 2010 on my LJ, but I'm not sure if the pictures are still up.
End of March 2012 I had to cancel the running year because I had a break-in at home and all my professional equipment was stolen. I couldn't afford a new DSLR at that time and it took a while to find a normal digital camera for my high demands, but I didn't get back into the project ... maybe sometime in the future.
Aug. 28th, 2013 11:27 am (UTC)
Oh that's awful! :( I'm sorry to hear that. Have you been able to replace your DSLR now?
Aug. 28th, 2013 11:31 am (UTC)
Nope, still shooting with an Olympus SZ ... and given my current situation, a new DSLR is not on the horizon. It's okay, kind of, because I've been lacking inspiration for a few months now anyway.
Aug. 28th, 2013 11:35 am (UTC)
Well, hopefully the photo meme will inspire you a bit - I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures! My DSLR died a few years ago and I haven't been able to afford to replace it yet, either. But to be honest, my little compact is pretty good and certainly a lot easier to carry with me.
