Here we are again on the first Sunday of the month & following the fabulous format devised by Sian I'm sharing with you something Precious - Memories, old & new x
This month I wanted to show you one of the ways we have been keeping memories which we hold Precious, alive & in the fore front of our minds.
This is our kitchen wall. We acquired these printers trays from different sources but grouped them together to hold little bits & pieces. These little things represent holidays, people, moments...none are valuable in the monitory sense but to us they are priceless. Being in such a prominent place they get lots of attention which in turn sparks spontaneous story telling to the admiring audience :)
Now for a closer look...
a wooden church from my childhood.
a jade elephant from China Town, Singapore.
an elephant made by our daughter at school.
glass santa from Venice.
a boomerang from Sydney.
a MGM badge from the Harry Potter Studio Tour...
a pyramid from Egypt.
a masonic stamp.
a Merlion from Singapore.
a book from my Auntie.
pin badge from Disney, Florida.
2 chickens, like our pets...
wooden icons of new York.
a Russian doll from Warsaw.
a glass turtle from Australia.
a camel from Cairo.
Fawkes the phoenix - our family mascot!
a thimble like my Gran used.
a rock from the Salt mine in Krakow...
When we look at these trays I can't help but smile as the memories come flooding back.
