With camera in hand, safari-style, I gathered up a few items – mementos and keepsakes – from various rooms throughout the house, plucked from the kitchen counter, the dresser in our bedroom, the desk in our office, a shelf in the guest room.
Color. Texture. Remembrance.
- A painted plate from a holiday craft venture with my son
- The unique picture frame with a photo of my father
- The silk comb I wore in my hair on our wedding day nineteen years ago
- Sawdust and wood-shavings from Dad’s sawmill in a Mason jar, tied with a bow made from a strip of fabric from one of his old flannel shirts
Yes, these are a few of my favorite things.
