Things That mean Things

The other day I called around to all my friends asking if they had seen my bean shaped 1940's Tiffany necklace laying around there apartments.  At the time I thought I had lost one of my favorite necklaces and I was aching from sadness.  I don't mean to sound like I am materialistic and need things to make me feel complete but I am sentimental to a fault, Trav gave me the necklace a few years back for Christmas and I have been in love with it since.
This little experience led me to want to document some of the things that hold little bits of history I wouldn't want to lose if these objects were lost. 

My Grandmothers ring that my Grandfather had given her, I believe it is a smokey topaz?

My favorite ring, Tra found at a vintage store and gave to me knowing I would love, love, love it

My Grandma Peterson earrings which I have adopted to be my favorite earrings

The necklace I thought I lost but found it intertwined with another necklace

The bracelet my dad came home from the hospital wearing after he was born

Fabric Petals from a quilt my Grandmother made

Grandfathers pocket watch

The Bible my Grandfather used while serving a LDS mission 1920's

His handwriting

Jess this by far my favorite post. I love to think about the stories behind each piece and how much character they have. It helps me remember all the things I cherish. Thanks.

This is probably one of the most sincere set of photos I have ever laid eyes on.
