Heritage Challenge: Important Inanimate Objects

This week we are scrapping an important inanimate object from your past.  I was taken with Debbie’s (dwest) layout of a bowl from her grandmother, pages from Alina Love and Susan [at home in ottawa] . . . and I begin thinking of a sentimental object from my past to scrap.  You may have a very valuable item or something that is worth only pennies.  Thus today’s topic for the Heritage Challenge Gallery!

Do you keep objects that may be useless to you now, just because you associate them with some past memories of yours? Maybe because they remind you of people who may have passed away or that you do not see very often nowadays. Or maybe because they just remind you of yourself, years ago.

Connie (scullen), Merrilee (digigrandma) and I (readstoomuch) have made three very different pages about three very different objects from our pasts.

Merrilee chose the trunk which belonged to her great-grandmother and now sits in a special place in Merr’s home.  You must read the journaling!

I absolutely love the subject which Connie chose for her page today.  Just as Merrilee has done, Connie has written an amazing story to go with a necklace which she found that had belonged to her mother.
