I imagine some of you younger bloggers don't....but I do.
Nothing stirs memories like downsizing, packing and moving. As you look at each item deciding what to keep...what to discard...one cannot help but be reminded of earlier times and places.
These are old radios left to both Brad and me from our long deceased parents.
The Farnsworth in the first pic belonged to his parents. I can just imagine the family gathered around it listening with anticipation to favorite programs and imaging the happenings in their mind's eye. The second radio..belonged to my mom and dad...perhaps it came down from my grandmother...who knows. Anyway, I can envision my mom listening to events about the war while my dad was stationed elsewhere. We actually had this radio while we lived in Germany because I have seen it in a few photos taken during my time there as a small child.
These are treasures we will never part with. They have moved with us from home to home..and they will travel yet again when we find the wonderful spot that awaits.
These are busy and exciting times for us...imaging our special things in our new home.
I will keep all of you posted.
BTW.....you know I cannot post a photo WITHOUT flowers.....found these at my Trader Joe's for $3.99 a dozen....simply amazing..aren't they?
