It's only a thing, but it makes me happy when I look at it. In the spirit of that overused William Blake quotation, here are a few of mine...

My favourite picture of the boys, in a frame given to me
by one of my oldest (and we really are getting on now)
and dearest friends.
A bird print by my friend Jane. I love it, and it reminds me of the
joy that new friendship brings.

My mum and I found this for £5 in Refurnish in Totnes.
She then lovingly painted it for me. My mum is great!  

Happy memories of two fantastic years living in Manhattan.

A slightly guilty birthday present, bought with birthday money
that for once didn't go into the groceries pot.
 I'd been coveting this radio for ages.

Dartington pottery from another old friend. I just love it.

Memories of a very happy day spent at the etsy labs
in Brooklyn, learning to screenprint.

It reminds me of foxes glacier mints.
The friend who gave it to me admitted that
she was tempted to keep it. I know what
that's like so I treasure it even more!
