It’s a photo simply filled with memories. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle was my favorite book as a pre-teen and after our house fire last year my mother gave me the tattered copy from my youth. The glass mason jar is filled with seashells picked up on a girl’s trip years ago in Sanibel Island with dear friends Stacey, Catherine and Tamara and the giant foot is a souvenir from Rome when I took my 16 year old niece Tessa to Italy for her birthday.

And, lastly, the playing cards a memento of my time spent chatting a couple of months ago with Design Hero Gary Gibson at his trend setting shop in LA.  I see my home in memories – each piece a souvenir, sitting on a shelf and reminding me of moments that make me smile.
