When you don't have time to sit in the house and sort through the drawers, you bring the drawers home with you!

And the item I will treasure the most, the last thing I found while hunting through her cake-baking collection, the handwritten buttercream frosting recipe, lying there on the floor, just waiting for me to find it and keep it. I would be rich if I had a dollar for each time I called her over the years for this specific recipe. I couldn't keep track of my own when I would copy it down, so I'd call her again the next time. Now I have my own copy, and in her handwriting - the best treasure of the day!!
