Today my musings have taken me to the past…and here’s what I discovered. Check in with Jenn, at A Daily Rhythm.
For the past few days, I have been searching my Archives, discovering little treasures from my early days on this blog. Like the post in which I shared the photo and books above, Odds, Ends…Ah, Potpourri.
The books were old favorites: Marge Piercy’s memoir “Sleeping with Cats” is near the top of the stack, beneath a copy of “Open House,” by Elizabeth Berg. And who could ever forget “The Golden Notebook,” by Doris Lessing. I recall reading that in college. I recently bought another copy from Amazon, because, despite my obsession with my books, I couldn’t find my original copy!
The doll makes me think of Ireland, so she fits right into my Ireland Room, where I have hung several photos from my eldest, Craig, the Photographer.
In this next photo, I have placed an “Irish” doll next to one of his photographs: set in a cemetery. I have the photo in my bedroom.
The three-dimensional plate features an Irish cottage.
I still have the dolls, but the one in the top photo is packed away in a bin in the garage. The dolls were overflowing into any empty spaces available.
Today I’ve been visiting blogs and thinking about the present, but while taking out my Thanksgiving decorations, I stumbled upon this old photo of three of my grandchildren, Alec, Aubrey, and Aaron…when they were much younger. They are now 20, 18, and 17. So I placed it in my office.
Here is a close-up:
And here are the Thanksgiving Jim Shore figurines, the search of which brought me to an unexpected place:
