I had an amazing story told to me the other day, just on the off chance as I was passing. The person showed me an object and started telling me about her mother and how it had belonged to her. She also spoke, in relation to the object how her mother was very into ‘make do and mend’ and the object reflected that. She talked about how she’d always thought about making something out of it…a new artefact….exactly what I want to do….! It was quite strange. I got an overwhelming desire to help realise her dream of wanting to create an artefact. I asked if she would like to tell me her story and thankfully she agreed.
On one side I feel a bit naughty as my collection process is technically over and I am on with most objects, however the other part of me felt this was a story that needed to be added, taking the total (I think) up to 10. There may be objects that in the end don’t end up as finished as I hope due to people moving on or wanting not to be involved in the end, but I think 10 is manageable anyway.
Looking forward to adding to the collection.
