I like to think that things in my home fit the description above. I like the power of deciding what resides in my home, and having the power to remove 'stuff' if I want to. I like having memories and stories connected to everyday things. I recently replaced my newish and pristine mixing bowls with my mothers and grandmothers used and memory filled bowls. I liked replacing the new with the old, becuase they have a story and are now part of my story - long after their owners are no longer with me.
