I don't collect things because I like to have them as possessions. I like to collect things for the stories they hold. One of my favorite collections is my rosary collection. To me rosaries are things that are meant to be saved and kept safe. Here are just a few (I do mean only a small portion) of my favorite rosaries from my collection. I hope you enjoy!
|Given to me by my aunt before setting off for college for the first time. She said it would protect me.|
|My smallest and very first rosary. I got this one when I was about 11 years old. It's a baby rosary that I found in an antique store. I begged my mom for it until she got it for me.|
|Made by the nuns in the Vatican. It's my favorite token from my trip there. Instead of a cross on the end it has a book with the Lord's Prayer in Latin. It now protects my car.|
|Rescued from a yard sale several years ago. It was too beautiful to leave. This beauty now hangs in the center of my room on my fan pull.|
Do you collect stories or things? I want to know what you like to collect.
