I created this shadow box using my mother's collection of brooches. It was placed on display at her memorial service. It was heart-warming to see her old friends point to a particular pin and remember her wearing it, or better yet, they remembered giving it to her.

The next time you go yardsale-ing and see an old, weird plate, buy it for 25 cents, store it, and wait till you have a dozen weird plates. a lot of weird things is suddenly cooler than 1 weird thing!
