I often drive past a pawn shop and always wonder about their window’s wording. I mean, certainly we all value things differently. Apart from my wedding ring, I own merely plastic jewellery…and they tell stories! More stories than diamonds and pearls, I tell you. (Wait, I own a string of *cultured* pearls too, which I am sure know more poems off by heart than your regular ones)
For my birthday this year, my niece(7) gave me the most, uhh well, (roll my eyes slightly to the top left) gorgeous little ornament with a self-made card. You try and value that!
Thirty years from now I might end up like my granny, with random ornaments and tiny porcelain dolls with broken legs, but these are our treasures and no price tag would ever be able to value them.
