Old Things

Since I was a little girl, I was drawn to old things...

My family and I lived in a Victorian house and like most old homes it revealed stories from within by what was left behind.  I remember finding a child's silver ring between the wooden floor boards in my bedroom.  The small ring had an engraved letter on the front of it...I was in awe.  It became an enchanted gift from time.  With the imagination that comes from youth, I created a story in my mind about this ring.  I envisioned the girl to be about the same age as me and how we shared the same bedroom.  I even tried to guess her name by the engraved initial...

Found objects can carry an essence that only we can discover.  Whether the finding may be an old buckle or small button, the enchantment is where it came from and who it belonged to.
