Keepsakes [Ruby Tuesday]

It's funny that I found these keepsakes again after almost a decade. Moving forced me to sift through each piece of stuff I have collected all these years. These are the remnants of my Hallmark days when I kept a sample of the most problematic designs we worked on to remind myself of small victories. I also collected some of the funniest and the cutest designs.

This porcupine-in-love-with-a-cactus was my favorite, and I was thrilled when I found it at the bottom of a box. I love the text etched on the pot, "Ours is a strange and wonderful relationship".

Happy V-Day to you!
