I want to be able to look up from the end of the story and then, slowly, as what I have read sifts down, to have the flower of relevance open for me. ~ Nancy Hale, Essayist
That is the way to collect and create a home with charm and depth and memories. The odd piece from thrift shop or flea market can be just the thing to tie everything else together. I looked around my living room earlier and saw a motley collection of family things, items my great-grandfather, great aunt, grandmother, father and mother cherished combined with odds and ends and gifts. Really, nothing quite matches. But it all works together.
I agree with Mimi, we recently had a friend over and she was admiring all the cherished kitchen items from 3-4 generations of our family. She complimented me when she said my kitchen was like a Family Museum.
