Things that Donna gave me

Donna is a family friend, and I think about her quite often because I see her in the treasures she has given to me over the years -- things that might not bring a big price on Ebay, but are valuable to me because of their history and because of the spirit in which they were given. A cookie jar from her childhood because she knows I like stripes, some vintage buttons to add to my collection, a locket that had belonged to her Aunt and a glass platter that she had received on her wedding day. Naturally, Donna will be the recipient of this card. Gouache on chipboard.

That is such a sweet posting. How special for you to have someone like her in your life. Lunch was nice, thanks for taking the time.
