Funny thing about souvenirs, in an instance, they can transport you to another time and place. Jennifer has hers proudly displayed in her great grandmother’s antique curio. She loves the sentimental value that housing such an important family heirloom brings as equally as she loves the keepsakes that she has filled it with.
Walking over to the cabinet, she takes a moment to to admire her menagerie before she starts the chore. It’s the third Thursday of the month which means it’s dusting day. Shelf by shelf, she cleans each piece. Some are delicate, dainty, and beautiful, while others are a little more off-beat and fun-going. Her favorite, always gets dusted first. It’s the most peculiar of her collection and a real conversation starter. As she picks it up, she giggles to herself and begins.
