To me, family treasures are not measured in dollars but in memories and yes, sentimental worth. (I will never be a successful minimalist.) Last night Sergio told me having these items around made him feel homey.
These used to be at his grandmother's house and now they're in mine. Homey.
Hopefully our future children will look upon these objects and spark a yearning to learn more about their Russian heritage.
Thank you Nora for sending them.
