words… my mom gifted me with these boxes this weekend. These treasures were hidden amongst my late grand-mothers things. On Halloween it will be 8 years since she was taken in a traffic accident. I still miss her. She was one of my biggest encouragers when it came to pursuing the arts. I have so many fond memories of her, as she graced stages with her beautiful voice and her endless creative ideas. It’s a treasure of memories and trove of crafty girly ness. Oh the buttons, fur collars, 15+ pairs of gloves, sequins, lace cowls, pink shimmery fabrics…. my girls are dying to dive into all this. I should just let them go at it, in a way it would be passing on a legacy. What good is it to hoard and protect what begs to release creative freedom. What would you do with all these things?
