Welcome to Keychain of the Day!



I collect keychains! I update often featuring a different keychain from my extensive collection. If you have questions about how many I have, how I got started, or other common questions I get, please check my inaugural post here. If this interests you, feel free to add me as a friend- you don't have to ask first.

If you want to donate your old, unwanted keychain(s) to me, please comment, PM, or drop by my keychain geocache (more info on that behind the cut). I would be happy to accept any keychain in any condition and you will be helping to contribute to one of the world's largest high-quality keychain collections.

Keychain of the Day



Here is the last keychain from Treesa at Grab the Brass Keyring, one of the net's premier keychain collection blogs :) It's funny because I have this one! I also loved double dare as a kid and by this time I was already collecting keychains so my mom sent away for this one for me. I just love watching all the little things in the slime moving around. Truly great minds think alike!

Of course I never have a problem getting duplicates. In fact I like it because then I can use one of them and save the other in my collection. I also never mind getting broken or beat up keychains because I have a good time fixing them. Any keychain is a good keychain to me! So everyone should feel free to send mooooooooooore lol

Another final thank you to Treesa for sending me such wonderous wonders! They're all going to be very special to me because keychain collectors are so rare and collectors with blogs are even more rare. I appreciate all of these very much!

Starflower the pony is very excited about this keychain. I personally really like the license plate version of keychains. Whoa, it just occurred to me that maybe I should start a subset of my collection and try to get one from each state/province. I have enough for a good start but that would probably keep me occupied for awhile. Hmm...

Thanks again, Treesa! Starflower gives you a brohoof /)

Here is a cool heather keychain that you can put a picture of a rat yes, of a rat inside. I personally have never been lucky enough to find a keychain with my name on it at a thrift store but then again, the stores here rarely seem to have keychains. When they do, they seem to be incredible ones and I trip over myself to buy them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Look at this neato keychain! This moose has very good taste :) Busch Gardens is a pretty fun place to go around Christmas because they decorate it so nicely. There are also white peacocks which are kinda neat as well as kookaburras which remind me of the zoo in Sydney. They took out my favorite ride, Rhino Rally, which sucks. It was like Disney's safari ride mashed up with a water ride unexpectedly.

Anywhoo, I gotta run. Busy day. My blender broke, toilet broke (fixed that), couldn't sleep last night, have to take my friend to the eye doctor, my check engine light came on, and I have to take Rufus to the vet to see if his lumps are cancer (Cipher just went last week for a lung infection).

Thanks again to the splendiferous Treesa!

Today was a very exciting day for me! Treesa from Grab the Brass Keyring (excellent name!) sent me keychains! I am over the top thrilled, I can't even tell you. The keychains were individually wrapped (which I love) so I am going to treat them like a mini advent calendar and open them one by one.

Today's is a great keychain for travel. I think they're the main reason I wasn't pick pocketed in a creepy bus station in Copenhagen and my friend was. That and a little situational awareness. Anyway, mine are branded with ABB and Westinghouse logos from when my dad worked there so this Merit one is new to me. I'm not sure if I should add this one to my traveling bag or keep it safely in my collection. What do you all think?

Happy Day of the Dead, everyone! I just picked this keychain up today at the Joann in Lakeland (home of Publix) while I was stocking up on some cheap yarn. Cute, huh?

Happy All Saints Day!

otaku1 got some of this anti itch stuff for bug bites and I guess they were offering a keychain for free with proof of purchase so he sent away for it for me secretly. He got a letter back saying that the company wasn't prepared for the keychains to be so popular and they had run out so Josh aws extra glad he hadn't mentioned it to me so I wouldn't be disappointed. Time passed and I guess they got a second run of keychains made because they mailed Josh one and he happily passed it on to me. Isn't it a cute little bunny bee mosquito thing? The best part is that the antennae have a wire in them so you can position them however you like and they stay put. Thanks otaku1

Happy Halloween, party people. About a week ago, my mom called me to mention that I had gotten mail from my "German friend, you know the one." Ah yes, Mom, in fact I do. It had to be the mighty schnee! Anyway, my dad's health has been very poor in general and especially lately so today was the first time I could catch up with them and retrieve my parcel. I apologize for the delay!

We were very excited to open it and see the imperial eagle and learn about the Bundesrat, aka the upper portion of the German federal government. Who knew? Totally a keychain collection first up in here! Then we started to discuss what kind of interesting background we should do for the picture in this very LJ entry. That's why there are three pictures. We couldn't choose. I went with a halloween/rat/random Mr. Bean theme. When I mentioned schnee likes ponies too my mom picked one I got in Dubai while my dad thought some Russian mini posters from Bronycon might look swell. UAE? Russian Federation? Germany? Oh why not mix them all together! After all, I am the one running this journal so we can have multiple pictures if I want them!

Anyway, thanks again to for coming in clutch with a Halloween spectacular. This keychain seems super unique and original and I am super duper excited to have it. I really do appreciate your tenacity in finding interesting German keychains, schnee. You never fail to find the perfect one to make everyone in my life that I force to look at my latest keychain go "ooooh aaaah."

And to respond to your question and maybe the question that everyone is obsessing about, YES, I am still accepting keychains. Any keychain, any time, any condition. I honestly don't think I could stop if I tried. I've been doing this for 25+ years so I can't get that pony back into the stable. I know I have been a bit weak at posting here and some of my profile is a smidge out of date (working on that) as is my sticky post. I am going to try to post more regularly and I am nearly nearly nearly finished with setting up my new keychain display which is going to really blow your minds. No really. It totally will.

So if you are thinking of sending a keychain in order to get a fabulous post like this praising you to the sky, either now or in the future, send it along. I can PM my newer address to anyone who wants or needs it but as we discovered above, my parents are good with passing along important stuff like keychains. Considering they were the first to support my collection as a child with no money, they are really very invested in my collection as well and were very interested to see the progress I had made with the new collection display.

Anyway, once again, thank you schneefor being fabulous! I don't think I have ever posted so many pictures of just one keychain but it was certainly worth it. Family fun for everyone :)

Recently I had the chance to head north. My bff had a family event and invited me up. I agreed to go on the condition that we spend time in Canada as I have always wanted go to go Windsor. It was a nice weekend! I got to see a groundhog which was very exciting but no chipmunks :( McDonald's has apparently changed the gravy on their poutine which was no bueno. The view from the river was really pretty!

This keychain from the Grand Rapids, MI airport was interesting. I guess the blue stuff is supposed to be rain but if you shake it really hard you can make it more like a seismic wave and flood the city. Concerned Applejack is concerned about that though!

And as soon as I can get to my parents' house, I will have a very special keychain post to make. Stay tuned!
