Storytelling Sundays 3 - Pick Your Precious
My grandparents didn't have a lot of material things. They lived in a modest 2 bedroom house in San Diego. Spending the night with them was a treat and an adventure. One of the things I loved about my Nana's house was that there were miniature items everywhere tucked into spaces. She had a love of miniatures. Little doll sized pans, animals, you name it, you could probably find it in her house.
I grew up and moved. When she passed away I was living too far away, and had 3 small children, so I couldn't make it out there. I don't have anything that was hers. I wish I did.
I do have this little elephant. I got him in a box of tea. He is part of a series. I only got him though. He lives on my desk at work. He reminds me of my Nana everyday. I know she would have loved him too.
I inherited her love of miniature things. I have a couple mini helpers hang out on my sewing machine.
I am sure she would also love my shelves in the Studio. I just can't resist small cute things.
Storytelling Sundays is not a new thing. Sian has been hosting this for a bit. I am just now joining in on the storytelling. I hope to make it somewhat regular, but that remains to be seen. I told this story and new we'll see how the rest of the year goes.
