Beloved oddities

Do you have any slightly bizarre possessions that would pain you--
 greatly-- to part with?
I do.
Lots of them, like the antique coffee grinder lamp (above) that belonged to my grandparents.
Its totally weird and it works as a grinder and lamp.

This Tibetan prayer wheel

"Sam" the Chinese Foo dog (he is made of coal).
They are part of my living room decor.
This quirky clutter makes it my own.

I change things around once in awhile
desperately need to edit much of it. (Somebody slap me)
I still like the fact that my curious collection provides an identity to my home that can't be copied from a catalogue.

What peculiar things do you own or admire in other people's houses?
