My Mementoes: Sierra’s Box

When Sierra died last year, my oldest sister sent me flowers.  The flower has this small ceramic box attached:

Inside the box is all that I saved of Sierra’s belongings…her tags:


The box holds a place of honor on my dresser.  There I can see it every day and remember my dear doggie friend.


My Mementoes

As many of you know, I moved recently.  Packing up a house takes a lot of time and sweat.  Unpacking a house may even be wrose.

As I’m slowly going through boxes, I’m finding treasures that I mean alot to me.  Some have been packed away and I haven’t seen them in some time.

I wonder what others might think of these little mementoes that mark my life?  I’ve decided to start a new theme and post them to the blog.  I hope you all will enjoy the stories behind each of my lifetime treasures.
