Where I'm From is in my Heart

I couldn't say where I'm from anymore - after traveling all over the place while Rich was active duty AF, my heart is in many places, so I just took a pic of my bookself which says it all. It isn't a fancy layout at all but it's me.

 

Journaling says:There’s a little tiny piece of where I’m from on this bookshelf and each piece is a treasure to me.

Hanging on the right of the shelf is a Turkish Flag from our years living in Turkey and my very favorite AF assignment;

my German Nutcrackers,my little Turkish Dolls, my family photos, my NC pinecomes, and books about every place I’ve ever lived.

THIS is whereI ’m from - and it's all right here in front of me everyday!

 

My hearts and background are from Angie Briggs!

What a wonderful page. Your idea to photograph the bookshelf for this is inspired. Love the journaling and its placement and those hearts are just the right touch.

Such a neat LO! Your journaling is really interesting, and the stitched hearts across the bottom make it feel homy. (Is that a word? LOL.) What a nice display to have in your home!

What a terrific idea Sara. I have the same type of bookcase filled with objects that have great stories attached to them. I never thought about photographing the collection. I need to do that before I forget the story!!!! Thanks for the inspiration. Great LO.

Love it Sara. I used to feel sorry for people who were stationed in a beautiful place and never leave the barracks. I was more like you. I felt at home where ever I was stationed.

What a wonderful collection,and great documentation. We see things that others treasure, but having the story behind the sentiment makes them priceless. Well done!

This is perfect! I love how you have this displayed. I was just thinking how long I've lived in one area....total of 38 yrs and 1 yr in Oklahoma.
