It was in this vintage mug that my grandma Anne used to give me milk when I was
a kid. She had quite a collection of ceramic wares and I loved this mug for its
cute picture of the little boy blue! During my college days, the mug slipped my
hand and broke down to smithereens..but I didnt giveup. I collected every broken
piece and glued them up and put the mug in my showcase. It has stayed there ever
since as a beautiful piece of nostalgia...
Little boy blue is a famous English nursery rhyme first published in Tommy
Thumb's "Little song book' in the year 1744.
This is a vintage black & gold
carioca 10 color ballpoint pen from Italy. Its probably from the sixties. It was a gift I had received as a kid from one of my aachis (grandma) Mrs Chella Albert ( my grandma's elder sister).
Chella aachi is no more but few of the gifts she had given me whenever she visited us have always been special and bring back lot of fond memorise...She was the one who introduced me and my brother to Enid Blyton, Tintin and so many other adventure books. It was always story time in the afternoons whenever she visited..A large part of my philately collection is her contribution. Receiving her letters were also as much fun as writing to her. She was a big part of my childhood memories. Thank you Chella aachi..
Another gift, Bible Quiz- a pack of cards from the 80s
This beautiful red boot house toy once housed a scented eraser inside , that could be accessed from the bottom sliding opening.
It has survived almost three and a half decades and is one of the regular hangings on our Christmas tree.
Another cute remnant from my toddler days. This yellow duck used to sit as the driver in a delivery toy truck. The toy truck was a gift from a relative abroad and used to be a favorite of mine. Sweet memories!
