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.

I’d say these would bring warmth, smiles and special memories to last a lifetime.. (:
Indeed. Thanks Roberta!
Thanks so much for playing along in this challenge this week. 🙂
The very fact you would collect sawdust and have it in a jar as a memento to your father totally charms me!
Kudos to my sister Kelly. It was her idea! Thanks!
So special no matter what they are! I still have some of my dad’s gardening tools ..lucky me 🙂
So your passion originated with your dad? I’m sure these tools are YOUR cherished keepsakes!
I have my dad’s green thumb 😀
Wonderful momentos and so many stories they hold for you!
Thank you Martha. What is life if not something to be remembered and cherished? 🙂
