What a perfect piece for the idea of something being so insignificant that it has no value to anyone else, but has significant value to the owner. This piece of wood trim is from a fellow student of mine at the Art Institute of Boston. I told her about the collection I was working on and she remarked that she had just the item for me. She had recently come across an old case of tools that also had this little piece of trim from when she had remodeled the kitchen of their old house...the house where she had raised her young children, the kitchen full of memories.
