Ocarinas, Unicorns and Keychains

I'm happy to be chosen to pick this week's topic!
Studio Friday October 27th suggested by
"Most people collect something, it would be fun to see what others have in their collections."

Tine says three objects would qualify, so first, here are my three ocarinas :

I used to collect and make unicorns when I was younger. The blue and white wooden one I made, my sister made the little brown fimo one.

When my son moved out, he left behind several keychains, to which I have added many many more. My favorites are the etch-a-sketch, little rubber duckie, and alien in a bottle. Click on the pic to see a close-up!
My daughter collects all kinds of candy wrappers, my youngest son collects all different soft drink cans (Coke is his specialty), and my husband collects "inspected by" tags.

I love the rubber chicken keychain--I had that one for a while but it's a little unwieldy.

Fun, Fun, FUN!! I love the unicorns, but I'm a bit partial to horses! The keychains are fun. I just bought one for a friend that is a horse that you squeeze and it goes off with a guy whooping and "whiny-ing" and then go "neighhhhh". It is hysterical. When you think the thing is done it just gets louder and louder. I almost worn the battery out before I gave it to her! ;) Great post! Thank you for sharing your wonderful collection(s)! Have a great weekend!
