Precious Memories

A while ago Sue, from A Smaller & Simpler Life, commented on items she couldn't bear to part with, for example a glass frog her son bought for her when he was younger.  Whilst unpacking after our latest move to the bungalow I unwrapped the items in the photo.  They were birthday presents from my son and daughter when they were still at school.  I can't for the life of me remember who bought which item but I can't part with them. They have come with us through 3 house moves and must be at least 35 years old. 

Do you have an item you simply can't bear to let go?

  2. I can not part with the gifts our oldest son has brought us on his travels around the world.

    God bless.

  3. I would never let go of my first birthday present teddy bear, the little Swiss chalet music box of my Nana's or the little gifts my son has bought me.

    Sometimes items are just too precious ever to part with.
