A Piece of History…

From A.Word.A.Day, Feb 10 - Recrudescence - A renewed activity after a period of dormancy.

How perfect is it, that that’s the word of the day today??  On the day I break the layout dormancy of a couple of months!!?  It feels good too, to be messing with photos and paper and glue again!

This layout centers around the photo I took of the wicker suitcase I discovered when we moved my parents from the house they’d lived in for over 50 years.  I’d never seen it before and had no idea it still even existed.  It belonged to my grandparents.  On the top of the basket someone had written, in black permanent ink, the family name, and the town, province and country they were traveling to back in 1948.  But before that, it had come with the family when they escaped from Latvia, and again in 1946, when they escaped from East Germany and over the Iron Curtain.  I’ve heard this story all my life, but to actually set eyes and hands, on a physical piece of that history….well, words fail.  Suffice it to say, it will always occupy a place of significance in my home as long as I am living.

I used bits and pieces of 2 lines of Teresa Collins’; Life Emporium and Nine & Co.  Both gorgeous lines singularly, but happily, they also play well together!
