Exploring the tangible requires your senses. The feeling of weight in your hands and you uncover, pass around and delicately touch each page. That specific fragrance that brings you back to a day, time or place.

Collecting memories can happen in many ways, but I started offering heirloom boxes and unbound albums for those that love the tangible. There are people who love to explore, curate and share stories and when it comes to telling your own story there is no better way. Included in many of the boxes are small glass vials, and today I’m going to share some ideas for what to store in them.

These little glass vials are just over an inch tall, and hold a small amount of treasures. Ten of them come in the Heirloom Wedding Box and three are in the Heirloom Print Box. Their purpose is to hold the smallest memories and could include the following :

  • a piece of the ribbon that wrapped your flowers
  • ground from the place you were married
  • blush that you wore on your wedding day
  • the cologne / perfume you wore (spray this on a fabric swatch + place in vial)
  • a small piece of lace from your grandmother’s wedding dress
  • sand from the beach where you honeymooned
  • beads from your mother’s wedding dress
  • a small paper inscribed with your wedding date
  • dried lavender or other flowers that were thrown at your exit
  • seeds to remember to always grow
  • a feather that you will never feel weighted
