My daughter selected small items that none of the first generation of nieces & nieces wanted from my Aunt's home. And, she sent me photos last night to show me what she had done with them. I am thrilled first of all that she wants a few things and second that she loves them so much.

{b]Journaling:[/b] Today I am thankful for . . . all of the little knick-knacks which Bess brought home from Aunt Velma’s house a couple of weeks ago. I am thankful that she loves having them and is enjoying cleaning them up and arranged them around her home. I am thankful that she sent photographs today so I can see what magic she has worked with them things she loves . . . the two little china elephants sitting among framed portraits of the children . . . the small white china dog and candy dish which look so pretty in her dining room and the two glass containers which always held candy sticks in Aunt Velma’s kitchen look so pretty and sparkly sitting in Bess’s sunny kitchen counter.
