But when do you stop to think about these important objects? How often do you dust off the trinkets on your bookcase or the forgotten treasure buried in the back of your closet, or even find a discarded piece of furniture by the side of the road and think about its story, what it has seen, who has owned it and loved it?
Thinking about these stories helps us appreciate what we have, or even what we are getting rid of. In these objects we can discover the beauty of everyday life, relive old memories, or pass on histories that may otherwise go untold or be forgotten.
I want to share these stories here on Bric & Brac. So go searching on your shelves, in drawers, and under your bed for hidden treasures, and contribute your object and story to the Object Project. What objects are important to you? What interesting, strange and beautiful things can you dig up? Share them!
