Day 20: Keepsake

Oh boy. I have moved so many times that I have either lost or gotten rid of a lot of things that would be keepsakes.

So, I guess it is another tie. I have a July 1998 edition of National Geographic. This particular edition has a small article with a picture of my Grandma Irene. The article was on natural disasters. Her house had been buried under over 30 feet of snow. She was a really neat lady. You can read my own memorium to her here.

My second treasure is a treasure box created by the ever so lovely and talented Abigail Swire. That little box has held some of my weird little treasures around the US for over 20 years.

One thought on “30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 20

  1. Keepsakes are the main thing I carry around with me in lieu of furniture.I have the 2 coffee cups and bowl you gave me. I have pictures and cards Zan made for me in elementary school, his odd attempts at ceramics, and a paper bookmark stamped with hearts and crowned with feathers. Baby teeth that belong to the tooth fairy. A big quartz crystal a boy gave me that he found on the floorboard of someone’s car.

    Reminds me of a great short story called “The Things They Carried” of soldiers trudging into war.
