Now I have a spliced fabric hanging on my window, made by my mum several years ago, thought it is still beautiful and practical, which reminds me the old house I lived in in my childhood, I guess everyone would have some old item related the beloved one. Will you show it?

Hi Meredith-

I think you are suggesting that having something old and or borrowed from a beloved should be on display within any home or on our person.

I think that is a lovely sentiment. At this time though, I don't have anything on display from a beloved.

Oh~ Yvonnie, thanks for replying, I originally thought I am here doing a solo 'cause many of my posts would be ignored, this is a little hurt in fact.
Yeah, I want to know what kind of beloved items others would like to show us, i really miss the feeling with items accompany our daily life!

Meredith a slow response generally means I am on vacation. Please, don't take it personally grin

My great grandmother used to make quilts for her children and then her grandchildren. I wish I had gotten one. It would absolutely be on display.

Dear Meredith, I have one or two things from my loved ones who have died and I like to keep them on display, where I can see them on a daily basis. This is usually in the kitchen. I loved my sister very much and when we were younger we shared a little statue of a fairy sitting under an umbrella. Her husband gave this to me when she died because he knew how much it meant to me. Whenever I do dishes, I see the fairy and think of my sister, even talk to her. My brother and I shared a love for Star Trek and his wife gaqve to me a Star Trek key chain, which I keep next to the fairy on a little shelf in my kitchen. I'm sorry I don't know how to show you photos of my beloved items. I'm glad you have your fabric to remind you of fond memories.

Meredeth.....I can see how old fabric can be comforting to have around. I like old things from cherished loved ones around as well. Old handkerchiefs, a vase, a hand crocheted blanket.....all so good for remembering our loved ones.

Dear Ruby June, I am sorry for for hearing what happened to your sister, hope everything would be OK when there is still something for us to cherish in life. I am sure the Star Trek and the Star Trek key chain are the most precious things in world 'cause our most soft and beautiful feelings for the beloved ones are indeed related with these little things.
Hope there is affluent sunshine in your life sincerely! Hope everything is OK!! smile

Aha, Debbie thanks for sharing with us your old things, I love them too, old handkerchiefs, vase, hand crocheted blanket, I have those things listed in my house as well, in fact they all belong to the past and owned by my grandmother as well, But the point is that i love these things,and I am not willing to replace them with any other items. smile

Bringing up the idea of having old items from our loved ones is a beautiful sentiment. It makes me wonder if any of us are creating or gifting items of symbolism.

I am crocheting and sewing blankets for each of my daughters. Anyone else creating family heirlooms?
