Wordless Wednesday: Rice Bowl

A piece of a broken heirloom. Like the rest of us, it tells a story.

    I loved your poem. It's so true, living in a disposable society, everything always has to be perfect.

  12. I like the effects of the photo- clear in the middle and fading around the sides. It gives an impression of aged beauty.

  13. What a beautiful tribute to your grandmother. Very well done. It made me cry, as I miss both of mine very much. Excellent post for WW. Have a great day. :)

  14. While the damage may reduce the value to a collector it adds character to some treasure pieces. I bought a stone egg once because it has a strange stain running through the rock. I could have had a "perfect" one but I thought it was more interesting.
