Grandma's Blue Willow platter and a painting of our family sent by a blog reader
I have a brand new article up at Aleteia about how to manage heirlooms and keepsakes from loved ones.
My motto has always been, "The Most Important Things in Life Aren't Things," but so many objects do hold special meaning, especially when they belonged to a cherished loved one. Having them in our homes can bring us joy and comfort. Please check out the article and leave any strategies you may have for enjoying things passed down to you.
Special thanks to Denise Fleissner from Soulfuly Simple for her expert advice.
