I stopped doing Tuesday Treasures because they brought up a lot of uncomfortable emotions that I didn't realize I had. My childhood was not the greatest. I wasn't neglected or abused in any way but my family was very dysfunctional. Showing these few things brought up memories I thought were long buried and forgotten about.
Honestly I kind of freaked out and shoved everything back in the black space and slammed the lid! But then it occurred to me that perhaps it would be healing or at least good for me to get some things aired out and that it's o.k to be uncomfortable sometimes.
So I'm trying this again and I can't promise that I won't freak out again. I think I'll mix old treasures and new ones so we'll see.
Today's treasure is my grandma's beaded clutch purse. I received a few things when my grandma passed that my mom thought I might want, like some jewelery and things. My most favorite is this little clutch purse. It probably dates to the 60's. It's in great condition and It's my dress up purse.
It's made of an tapestry fabric then beaded. The handle is beaded too. The orange, yellow and green colors were her favorites and I always think of her when I carry it. I hope to pass this down to my daughter or granddaughter one day.
Do you have something you love from a special person in your life?
