Repurposed memories

I read about this giveaway over at Whatslifewithoutwhimsy and just had to check it out! I love the idea of repurposing something old into something new and useable anyways and to make a much loved clothing item into new gifts for so many is just great!!

I still have a sweater that belonged to my Grandpa....I can remember wearing it for the longest time and in some strange way, it brought me some small amount of comfort...like he wasn't really gone...I have since retired the sweater to a drawer in my dresser but there's still times that I take it out and just hold it...close my eyes and remember his big strong hands, or his deep hearty chuckle...and I still find comfort in that sweater....

What's something that you have that once belonged to someone else and how does it comfort or help you remember?

Thanks so much for blogging about my give-a-way. I've had such a positive response about my little owlies. I hated to cut up my Dad's flannel shirt...but now there are 4 in our family who can have a reminder of him. Especially, our grandsons who never got a chance to meet their great grandpa!!
In His Love....Deb
