Storytelling Sunday - February
When i was growing up, my family had a tradition of each member giving a handmade gift, as well as a storebought gift, to everyone at Christmas. The handmade gifts were always the most anticipated and we opened them first on Christmas morning. One year my sister gave me this "bank" - she must have been in about second grade (7 or 8 years old.) She decorated a jar with some glitter, gift wrap cut-outs, and Mod Podge. I have kept this jar in my underwear drawer with emergency cash in it ever since, which is about forty years! It is a treasured possesion that I know I will keep forever.
Sian, who is a gifted storyteller and a sweet, creative soul, has a series titled "Storytelling Sunday" on the first Sunday of each month. Please visit her blog to read about other treasured items and the story (there's always a story!) behind them. I am off to read about other precious picks right now!
