Pardon my unannounced absence on Monday; we’ve had family and friends visiting and I found myself very (and happily!) busy! Everyone is now at or on their way home, and Nick and are are delighting in the chance to spend some time together and reflect on the wonderful weekend and visits.
One of the things we got to do during the visit was accept some family heirlooms from Nick’s grandfather. Here’s some of the collection!
Some chopsticks and boxes from Japan, received during a visit to a former exchange student there.
An absolutely incredible custom jade stamp made for Nick’s grandfather on that same trip – the contents of the boxes in the first photo.
A wonderful old boy scout guide book! It has notes and letters inside, too! It’s been clearly well-loved.
What treasures have you received from your family?
