A home of memories | Blog

My Nan's house is such a special place to me and if I really think about it, it's not the house that is special to me...it's what it holds. Growing up I spent a lot of time at my Grandparents house (not the one they have now) and have very vivid memories of my time there. I remember my Brissy's study and his desk where we used to play office. I remember the rug that my nan had by the fire place that had tassels all around the edge. I remember the little bath oil balls in the shell bowl in my nans bathroom. All such small memories but ones that mean so much to me.

Recently I went to visit my Nan and I found that she still has so many of the things that she had when I was younger and that I remember and associate with her. The more I thought about it, the more I realised how small and menial these things were but how important they were to me. Take for example this mug...

My nan has pretty much the whole range of this stuff. The plates, mugs, bowels...all of it and I am sure she has had it for ages! It is just a mug for holding tea and coffee but these mugs remind me of all the chats I have had with my wonderful Nan over these mugs.

If you haven't guess already from my previous posts or social media I have a really thing about scents. Scents to me hold so many memories and the scent of my Nan is something that is so special to me.

memories, nan, grandparents, love, happiness, family, through amis eyes, blog, I can't even really put my finger on what the scent is. It's a mixture of perfume, cigarette smoke and CIF (I think...) but it's a smell that I seriously love as it reminds me of her and makes me feel happy and safe. I love it when we come home from seeing my Nan and I can still smell her in my hair and on my clothes.

It can't just be me who feels like this about stuff and scents?? Well, I suppose it could be and I could just be really weird but I'd love to know if you are the same. What special items or scents hold memories for you? Let me know in the comments.
