Memories



Although I don't talk about my house much in this blog, Pauline recently posted some gorgeous pictures she made for her London flat. It made me think of a couple of items I've recently acquired, and why. A dear, dear friend died a few months ago and her daughter called to see if her Mother's good friends would like to purchase some items from the house sale. We were given a private tour before it opened to the public, and I got a few small things which had stories attached. I've always admired Pat's mirrored candlesticks and asked if she ever came across more she would let me know. Little did I know that it would break my heart to acquire mirrored candlesticks the way I did, but of course Pat's were the first item on my list. I also got this little angel who will always remind me of her. These are good memories, not sad, and I'm proud and happy to display them in my home.

Carole I understand your feelings about your friend's treasures. Having recently lost my mother, it broke my heart to bring her treasures into my home. But now, I feel happiness when I look at them , because they were special to her.
