Treasure Drawer Collage

This is my treasure drawer, filled with items that ignite so many memories.

This is my beloved Maw Maw and Paw Paw.

This is an antique photo album from my oldest daughter's Great-Great-Great Grandmother. I'll allow it to speak for itself.

I can find no evidence this photo album was ever used. Perhaps it was deemed too pretty to use.

Other items include Paw Paw's; shaving kit, several of his knives, a lighter, a working pad lock and key to his tool shed, a snuff bottle, a wooden mallet, metal shears, a wooden box for boned salted codfish and his "Ft. Worth, Texas Livestock Commission Company-AT ALL MKTS" medallion on the original leather strap. There is also an old glass jar from where - I do not know.

All of these treasures are a part of my past and when I look at them I remember...oh how I remember.
