Last year for Christmas my sweetie gifted me boxes full of vintage decorations to add to my collection, when I opened one particular box it took my breath away! It was after the holidays so I stored them away (peeking once or twice throughout the year) then yesterday I opened the box again to use the items in my decorating and just the gathering of them all together in their old ornament box, cushioned with old tissue, just waiting to be loved again(they had been stored for many years) took my breath away once again! I don't just see them as items, I see stories, other peoples lives,and things they cherished because they represented the good times in their lives. I will cherish them and hope that someday they will once again end up in the hands of another that will not only cherish them but respect the love that they must hold.
