Ben's keychain collection

Remember when I said Ben and I are in strict competition over who has the cooler key chain collection (I do!) well I finally got around to photographing his. I think we're going to have a Facebook comp to see who wins but feel free to voice your own opinion in the comments below. I think it's going to come down to who has more friends really :p







You can check out mine here.

I had this revelation the other day that Ben and I optimise the stereotype of little kids and their genders.  My favourite colour is pink and I like all things cute and as you can see above Ben likes swords and guns and tools and toy cars :p


The best thing that came out of all this (untangling his collection was certainly not) is that I've been wanting that cat keyring Ben got in Japan (for forever) and he finally gave it to me! (who ever said persistence never pays). I also love that it looks a little bit like Gremlin!

  2. You both have a great collection! And it's great that you both actually collect things. I start and then it kinda goes ignored. My brother had an amazing stamp collect that he still has to this day. He also collected D& D dice which he still has and are in good condition. Aigh. I should learn the patience and joy of collecting things. It really looks great and fulfilling :)

    1. Some may call it collecting others may call it hoarding :P Ben and I both come from homes of thrift shop ladies and I think our collections just sort of starts to happen. Key chains are fun though because they're cheap and everywhere and don't take up too much room :)

  4. That's an impressive collection. And I have to agree it's very boyish, whereas yours are totally girly.

    1. Thanks Damaris, one vote for me :) he he he. That felt dude IS a little Ben, he does a lot of art trades and one of his trades was with an artist who does felt creations! Ben always uses that keychain against me when comparing collections :P
