It’s Sunday and time for the Question of the Week. This time we are gonna talk about our families.
In episode 1×06 The Garrison Commander, Claire sees Black Jack’s straight razor and is immediately sent back to a memory of Frank, with that same razor. So today we’re going to talk about the things you own that remind you of family and with just a touch, or even at just the sight of the object it can take you right to that person.
Here is a photo of a couple of my family heirlooms:
The box was made by my maternal grandmother and the hair combs belonged to her as well. The lace bedspread was crocheted by my mom. All of these things live in my house with me and bring back memories of my grandmother, and not just memories that have to do with the items that belonged to her. My favorite memory of her was when I was little she would always sneak me extra mashed potatoes even when my mom said I couldn’t have anymore. My Memaw knew what I liked. 🙂
So tell us about your heirlooms and what memories they take you to.
