Everyone has an object with a story.  It’s not about its aesthetic or monetary value, it’s about the narrative wrapped up in the object.

This owl bookend are owned by a friend who has young children and it so endearing to look at.  You can see a mother and child, comfort & care, love & be loved.  It came from a vintage store and it sits on her dressing room bookshelf where it holds together her parenting books.  It’s one of her favorite objects that remind her of her dedication to her kids.

This is a start of a series I will be exploring – our dearest objects and the meanings we attach to them, what makes a possession prized, how are we placing value on these objects, and what might our surroundings reveal about our personalities.
