A Special Keepsake


I’m a collector and for many years I have collected boxes of all kinds. My favourite box is the one in which I store all of my favourite and most precious memories: my baby clothes and a couple of toys, a skillet left me by my grandmother, assorted trinkets from loved ones, some postcards and letters from around the world, greeting cards and photographs.

When I was a kid I recall my grand dad having an old steam ship chest in which he stored favourite things and I have great memories of being allowed to rummage in the chest with my grand father, I think this brought about my own love of boxes large, small, old and new.

My grand dad’s trunk had travelled from Ireland with him when he left his family to travel to England for employment. When my grand dad passed, my grand mother took over the trunk. Adding in all of the new generations photos and baby booties and other assorted goodies. When she died the trunk was handed down to another family member.

It is wonderful looking through the memories that have tied my family together from generation to generation.  I would have loved to have something as special as a photo engraved pendant waiting to be discovered underneath all the other treasures but sadly they did  not have the technology back then.

Perhaps that is something special that I can add to the box as I pass it on to the next generation.
