Here and There {around the house}

Do you have pieces in your home that just bring you joy? Most of mine are attached to some sort of memory. Things that make me pause and reflect on the good in life.

One would be my art wall. The reflections are awful, but I have to grab images when I can and it happened to be on a sun shiny day last Thursday. The top middle is an image of the me and the kids in New York last winter. The silhouettes are from Disney and well that is the happiest place on earth. The big print is from me and the Mr's 10 year anniversary Miami trip and that is a memory worth preserving.

Fresh flowers remind me of my old garden in our old house. I can't wait to get my hands dirty in this house!

This is my newest prized possession. It was a gift from my mother for Christmas. What makes it so special? It was once a wedding gift to my grandparents in 1940. Ellie is named after my grandmother so I know this gift will be passed down to her when she marries. The piece it self was hand drawn and you can see the ink smudge marks. I read it almost daily. {click image to enlarge}
