You have treasures!

We must have been doing the same thing. I was gathering hand written things from women in my family to fill my "Christmas" little book basket.
Have a nice day...Balisha

I love those kind of treasures displayed together--a sort of peaceful thing to look at, while rocking in your chair. Memories in each item.

What a lovely idea to gather all those special items in one place for awhile. Lots of positive energy and I know it radiates out into your words and everyday! Thanks for sharing it with us, Ernestine.

Gathered pieces of your spirit, lovely.

You are growing and changing and pushing our your boundaries.

Very special sharing!!!!

I have bought myself a lip tint and some yew tree buttons from Wooly Moss Roots. Jeff and Taryn give such care and love to the items they offer. I wear the tint and love love love it. The yew buttons, well, they are smooth and I hold them in my hands and feel the smoothness. So happy you like the Wilson's.

They inspire me!

((hugs)) and happy week.....

Tabor, Balisha, Judy, Sandy and Marcia, thank you. Keep thinking of other small items - but this is enough and yes - it warms my heart.

Mine is a little wooden bowl of shells. Gifts, finds, purchases from vacations. Every one a story of a memory. I love your keepsakes.
