When you go out junkin' do you
collect things to sell ~ to recreate
something from the past that
becomes a new treasure for someone else ~
I love to get things for my home
but I can only have so much before
it becomes hoarder status ~
So.....I am mostly on the hunt for
things to put on my website ~
While I was in Kansas I got
two Bibles that I thought would be
awesome to take the pages from
and use in pocket pillows or for
who knows what else but they are aged
As I took them out and really looked at
them (which I don't really do
when I am on the search) .....
I started to think about where they have
been ... what stories they had to tell...
Was this little Bible carried
to a church like this ~
or this ~
Was this larger Bible in a families house
out on a prairie somewhere ~ Did they
find comfort in its pages during
hard times ...
Where have they been through the years
to end up in a flea market in 2011 ~
Precious treasures from the past
are the things that we collect ...
whether to recreate with or to
cherish as they are ~
