Friday Finds May 2017
I love a good tote bag!
Women Salvation Army volunteers during World War I served up donuts.
Knitting helped send messages in code during World War II.
Speaking of World War II, a female hero from that war recently passed away and for 50 years, her family had no idea what amazing things she did during the war.
Journaling is something I’ve been doing pretty consistently since I was in junior high school. Of course, in those days, it was more of a listing of activities, crushes, heartbreaks, and teen drama. But I have years worth of writing in notebooks large and small. I have long pondered about what to do with all my journals from over the years, the biggest question being what will my family think about all of them ( and their contents!) after I pass away? Turns out I’m not the only one who wonders what to do with all those journals!
Saving things is part of what I do ( and why I do it!) for a living. Regardless, it’s so weird to see things from my childhood being preserved in museums.
My mom is super smart, and apparently I have her to thank for all those good grades in school, crossword puzzle solving abilities, and awesome trivia record!
