organizing and creating meaningful space

last night i uploaded a quick "sunset" photo right before midnight...kind of looked like a shooting star...something to wish on, focus on the future...but mainly manuel and i were working on so many projects i didn't have time to blog any more...this was one of the projects we completed...sea had this wooden box that held her wooden dolls and their magnetic clothes and it was getting too messy to put back together so we made it into a shadow box on her wall...some of the meaningful toys inside include her favorite childhood book "guess how much i love you," huckle the cat from the richard scarry series (our family's favorite), a watering can and handpainted dinosaur from two different coop preschool classes,the little green froggy my dad bought her specifically so she could pull it out of his shirt pocket when she was just under 1 years old, a little teddy bear from my childhood that was in newborn photos with both sea and story, more richard scarry figures like lowly worm, huckle cat, bananas gorilla and mr. frumble (who always loses his hat)...and finally, "marigold" the little orange "fairy" doll in the middle that story brought his sister when he was born...sea threw her on the ground and had a tantrum about not wanting her (or her brother for that matter) but later was grateful story brought her this friend (and later, that she had him, too)...

ok those are just a few connections i have with these toys on display...i'm sure sea has more and i'm glad we organized and displayed them in a prominent and meaningful way in her bedroom...

off for more productivity...updates on reunion planning later...
