Stick and Post it

I saw a lovely blog on Fridge magnets and thought we could start one.

What you need to do: Take a shot of the magnets you possess and list out any fond/ funny anecdotes/ background about them.
I do not have a huge collection but just a few treasured ones:
The auto is from Srilanka, Anush was into autos then. The mask is from Thailand, Navy's first trip abroad was to Pattaya!! The hibiscus is from Spore, the tower and the tree from our Europe trip, the supermarket hamper with the broken wine bottle from France during the same trip .
The pineapple is from Srishti in Chennai, bought during a bloggers' meet, the Fruit train and the wine bottle hamper from Santacruz roadside Mumbai - a rather good copy of the original, the wooden dolls from an exhibition ( ettikopaka), the London bus like bar snap magnet- a gift from a friend .

You will also note that when it comes to refrigerators I am a Samsung buff.

I am looking for the western loo magnet that flushes. I once saw it at a friend''s house. From the US of A she told me.

I specifically tag-

Mama mia
Monika. Ansh

Anyone else who is interested - pl continue this tag.

Hey Art, Sorry, can't join in. When we remodeled the kitchen a few years ago we decided to go with a demagnetized refrigerator and tossed all the magnets. They were mostly just ads for pizza delivery stores and the like.

You have a good collection
