The Things We Save

I have a box filled with treasures from my childhood.  Every couple of years I pull it out of the closet and sift through its contents.  There’s such a mish-mash of stuff, but it all makes me happy.

The highlights include: a crab claw Mom gave me from a dinner out with Dad; a broken ceramic cat head that decorated a stapler; a yo-yo; castanets; a tiny turtle candle; salt and pepper shakers from my great-grandmother’s collection (I dropped and broke the glass ones when I was little); a plastic telescope from a box of Cap’n Crunch cereal… and yes, those are my last three baby teeth.
