These items all form a little window that allows me to sort of "get to know her". I know she has a soft spot for ducks, she's good at sewing, she's a bit of an English Rose and she loved cooking. Kinda think she and my mom would've got along well together :)
I found a beautiful deer ornament (very solid, fell in love with it at first glance), and also six brand new spice jars (the latter at the perfect timing when the husband and I started buying spices to make curry pastes).
I always wonder whether she would like me if she were still alive and we got to meet...
