This week, Amy has chosen Display as the topic for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t done much in the way of posting recently, the reason being that we have been working hard preparing for an estate sale. When my mother-in-law passed away in July, she left a house full of possessions that were neither valuable nor particularly desirable but, when the family gathered at the old place this past weekend, we realized that so many of those things on display held a great deal of sentimental value, and when turnout for the sale proved to be disappointing, probably due to the timing being so near to Christmas, we found ourselves leaving with arms full of memorabilia.
We found the sled, probably dating back to the late 1960’s, in the crawl space under the house. It brought back memories of our first winter in Chicago when my husband would pull our eldest daughter up and down the sidewalk in the snow with my mother-in-law’s dog chasing along beside them.
