Do you have an object that conjures up thoughts of your family? Does your object bring memories of affection, funny moments or adventures great and small?

I stumbled across the Objects with stories page at the Barbican yesterday and lost quite a few minutes clicking on the pictures, reading the associated memories and relishing the moment.

In both sets of postcards I've had printed for my weekly dispatch to my Mum there have been pictures of objects. In the first set of postcards there was an embroidery she had done, in the second set there is a school report, an album and an ornament. All things that had relevance to her and to her life, all things that could be described and shared. I hope that the things I write on them have a similar level of fascination for her and her carers.
