House of Memories

House of Memories

For those of us who do assemblage, going to estate sales always brings a sense of anticipation.  Seeing the past through another’s eyes and memories, when viewing old photo albums, mysterious messages on faded postcards, vintage clothing, crystal goblets, hand embroidered cloths, antique trunks and numerous expected and unexpected things.  Everything held memories for that person or family.

This piece called “House of Memories” is created using many items that I discovered at estate sales, as well as those from my own family which allude to memories of them.
