Family treasures...do you bury them? I use to. I use to hoard them in a box, you know for safe keeping. Why do we do this? Afraid of what may happen to them? I figure why not surround myself with treasures and risk them being touched or looked at than having them bake in my 475 degree attic.
I went on a search and rescue mission in the attic. I found all of my baby shoes and my Paw Paw's cane. Now instead of wasting away in storage I am reminded how precious our daily walk is....
The cottage is just the place to enjoy my treasures. Do you have a special place to showcase some of yours?
This clock was one of my very first Christmas gifts...I think I am enjoying it just as much now as I did back then.
Broken...no problem! I bought this coo coo clock in Europe while on a school trip in the eighth grade.
Over the years and many hot summers in the attic the clock has seen its better days....I love it still. So why not surround yourself with a few treasures...they may just be the inspiration you have been looking for~
