ABC WEDNESDAY: M for Memories...

As I was cleaning the loft, I found a carton which stashed all my life as a child:


my beloved bags, the brown one was from Australia (it was a present from an aunt) and the white one was my mother's creation,


my photo albums (with a large collection of Brook Shields' and Kris Atkins' photos but also Charlies' Angels'),


diaries from primary school and high school,


all the pictures that I had drawn (so many of them...),


and the handkerchieves I used to take with me at school, the collars of my school costume and the plushed ribbons that I used to wear at my neck when I was singing with the chorus of my school.


So many happy memories just in a small box...
Years of innocence and purity!

Hello marina!

if you know something, tell me.
when I came your blog, computer virus tried to install to my computer. it's the second time.
few weeks ago the same thing happens.
I know you're not wrong, but are you coming up something?

How wonderful that you have a box of Memories.
I wish now that I had kept some of my Memories in a box, but alas, they are only in my head and my heart.
