distracted. Each cupboard, drawer or shelf I empty delivers some treasure that requires perusal.
Today I came across my small collection of pens, pencils and other novelties that I have collected at conferences and repositories. I've put the pens and pencils in a little container and deposited them on a shelf where they will gather dust. I can't throw them out because they remind me of how fortunate I have been to visit so many places and attend some extraordinary events.
As I was reminiscing with these writing instruments a word to describe them and the other things I collect from conferences and repositories just popped into my head.
These are some of my Sougenirs.....now I'm must away and add the term to my Geneadictionary.
Do you collect Sougenirs?
