Here are some nature shots of my latest project, Umbreon. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a Pokemon 🙂 I used to love Pokemon when I was little. My brother and I had three of the early versions and we would hook up our Gameboys with a cord and fight each other’s Pokemon. I collected Pokemon cards not because I knew how to play, but because I thought they were cute and pretty. Umbreon was my favorite Pokemon, so I made it possibly because of nostalgia, but I think it turned out ok.
This weekend, my mom, sister, cousins, and I did the difficult task of going through my grandmother’s things and taking the things that we wanted or could use. My grandpa certainly didn’t want to keep all of it and had no emotional attachment to most of it either. She loved collecting things. I have never seen so much makeup, jewelry, handbags, clothes, and shoes before in my life. Everything she owned was beautiful and of good quality. I always admired her for her choice in things and always thought she had the nicest stuff.
It’s precious and cute, yet very nice and of good quality at the same time. It reminds me of her because she liked nice things and had a fondness for cat figurines, many of which I inherited and are now at my home. I’ll have to take a picture of them all when I get settled in my new apartment next month. They are packed away safely for now.
It was difficult going through her things and strange at the same time. Although it has to be done when someone passes away, it still feels like an invasion of privacy. I felt terrible going through her things and just taking the lovely belongings she had collected over the years. It was heartbreaking to me, but I knew she would appreciate her family having her things rather than a stranger.
I still can’t believe she’s gone. She was always such a strong woman with a funny, yet sweet personality.
Some of the things I took home with me have her scent and I hope that doesn’t fade anytime soon because she had such a lovely smell. I miss her so much.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading.
