Photos on phones, in scrapbooks and photo albums, movies, television, art on walls and in galleries and museums are all ways we preserve our memories.
Growing up in the depression and World War II, some of the best memories we have were of canning and preserving — the Mason Jars full of every beautiful example of the harvest and the hunt. The steaming kitchens, wood stoves, perspiring women, and the formica tables laden with row after row of glass jars filled with vegetables and fruit held the promise of plenty on the table during the long, cold, Black Hills winters.
I revisit those times by showing you other precious memories, such as, “Preserve October” and “Preserve Ladybugs” and other things that we need to remember.
Several other preserved memories, such as “Preserve Spring Flowers” will show up in the ever-growing Mason Jar series which you can see during the Weaverville Art Safari on Sat. & Sun., Oct. 24th and 25th. Check out our Facebook page and the official Weaverville Art Safari website. I am #4 on the map. Stop by, and enjoy something from a Mason Jar (no, not THAT!). I think you’ll like what you see and hear.
Thanks for visiting me …
