A big thanks to everyone who participated in the first week of the IFB Project. As you know, our first task was to post about something that has sentimental value that a family member gave you. We've selected our 12 that caught our eye and it wasn't an easy task. You all had some lovely items


The amazing thing for me about wearing something with sentimental value is the feeling I get while wearing it. It brings back a specific memory of when it was given to me and it's a beautiful thing. Perhaps everyone doesn't feel the same way I do, but I believe it's essential to cherish the smaller things in life. I'd pick something with a lot of value to me over something designer with no problem.

    As I type, I’m at my pal Lisa’s desk at the HQ of Pendleton up in Portland OR. (She’s in a meeting, I get to use her computer.) Will do my best to post this properly but I’m on a blasted PC $T%^FTE$%.
