Preparing for a Cherished Blogfest

Tomorrow starts an annual event called the Cherished Blogfest.

Do you have an item you cherish?  Would you like to share it with the world (photo optional) in 500 words or less?  Would you love knowing what your fellow bloggers cherish?

It runs July 29, 30 and 31.  You only need to post on one of those days, and it isn't too late to join in.  I am participating with...well, I am not going to tell you.  I will give you some hints, however.

It won't be about my day lilies.  (you knew I wanted to sneak in one more day lily photo).
Only the foreground.  The neat looking garden in back isn't ours, alas
It won't be about my spouse's vegetable garden.
It won't be about zinnias.  Or about you, my faithful readers.  (I would say "valued readers" but that sounds so - corporate.)  Or my houseplants. Or my piles collections of books.
Steamed clams
It won't be about my spouse's cooking.  Or, for that matter, my spouse.  Or my son.

So what physical possession do I cherish the most?  If I was decluttering, what object would I never get rid of?

You'll just have to come back tomorrow and see.

If you aren't participating, I would be curious:  what object of yours do you cherish the most, and why?


  1. I have been "downsizing" for three years now. Not on a daily basis, but at least a monthly one.
    Initially, it was to afford me the ability to leave my 6 bedroom, 6 story home for this much smaller 3 story and almost 3 bedroom place. But, I still have WAY too much stuff.

    1. I think we all have too much stuff, regardless of the dimensions of where we live. I know I do.

  2. I am going to miss the Blogfest ... I wonder what you will be writing about though... is it about your cooking then? :D

  3. I cherish my framed family pictures, especially the last photo when my husband was with us.

  4. Beautiful pictures as always!I am intrigued to see what you will share. I don't know if I could pick ONE cherished "object" - I would say my spiritual relationship with God and my relationships with my hubby and family members would be my top cherished "objects" in my life.

  5. I don't know if I can think of a thing I truly cherish. Interesting blog hop, though.

  6. i like your picture, thank you for post Sakura Beauty
