Week 24: Heirloom: Viola Serviss

on July 4, 2015

Amy Johnson Crow’s suggested theme for week 24 of the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge is Heirloom:

What heirloom do you treasure? Who gave it to you? What heirloom do you wish you had?

My most treasured heirloom is not particularly old, but it holds special meaning for me.  It has been extensively researched and discovered that the olfactory sense is closely linked with memories.  Smells can be deeply ingrained and transport us back to the past.  The remains of perfume left in my late mother’s compact are capable of that for me.
