They are all through my house. Probably yours too. Not simply decorative, not necessarily useful, they have histories. They might be inherited from an ancestor, a gift from a lover, bought on a special trip. Maybe they played a role in a hilarious meal. However they came into your home, they and their stories matter.
Unless their stories are told, these objects will eventually be mere antiques. Those of more recent vintage will be sold at a garage sale, or even thrown in trash. I long to save them from that fate.
So, this site is a grown-up show and tell. I will post pictures of my treasures and tell their stories.
You are invited to join in and share yours.
