Because Mad asked...
My pink plastic hen. It's actually a planter, I think, but I use it to store tapes. My friends gave it to me at my 21 and a quarter surprise birthday party.
The bowl was either a birthday or housewarming gift a few years ago from a friend with a great understanding of my taste. Yes, we use it to hold sweet potatoes, onions, ginger and garlic. The drink mixer thing was just given to us recently by my parents.
And the penultimate... my Grandma Ruth's lady heads, one of which I use an icon on flickr, and a painted wooden spoon my Grandpa got when he went to Russia (USSR? I can't remember now). I seem to recall he got kicked off the trip for helping a Russian leave the country or some such thing.
