I have always loved the attic scene in Little Women where Jo lovingly looks through all the treasures in Beth's box after she has passed away. And, so I was inspired to create these "memory trunks" for each of my daughters. I found the trunks on sale at Hobby Lobby (two different times) and use them to store special treasures of each life represented. I also hope to use it as a tool of limiting what we save - keeping only the most special and important treasures. And, I sincerely hope that these will be a precious treasure for them someday! So far in their trunks are one baby book in each, the outfit I brought them home from the hospital in and a few baby cards. Emily's has a piece of artwork or two but there is still LOTS of empty space. I will probably not keep these in the attic due to the changes in temperature up there. But, they are currently both in Rachel's room, though they may move around in the future.
