Tell Me Tuesday: Week Seven

Welcome to Tell Me Tuesday.....First off the title is a bit deceiving.....it really is not about you telling me anything.... but answering a question truthfully and maybe telling yourself a little something you had not thought about.

I'd love for you to join me each week, and copy the question onto your blog and answer the question....and link back here. I am sure it will be interesting how there will be many different answers to the same question.....and hopefully give each of us something to think about as this new year progresses. My thought is so many people (including myself) are looking for some answers to various things. I have a feeling that the answers are inside needing to be jiggled loose and maybe a question posed a certain way will have a cause and effect in a good way. We will see how it goes! I have committed to this once a week for the whole year of 2012. I'd love for you to take the challenge with me!

I am keeping the rules simple...I'd love to watch this grow as the year goes on.

1. Grab the button on the sidebar if you like so others can find this new writing experience each week.

2. Once you link in, visit the person who linked in before you and leave them a comment. It would be great to visit and leave comments for as many as you can. But at least try and leave the person ahead of you in the link a comment of support.

3. Please link back to my blog and mention Tell Me Tuesday somewhere in your POST. That is it....easy.

Most of all, look at this writing experience with an open mind. Sometimes the questions will be hard...and require some thought. That is a good thing. Other times it will be easy. You can add photos, or whatever you like to your post. It is about you after all. ~ Thanks for joining me.....I hope you enjoy this each week.

Week Seven Question:

What is the most unique thing you own?


Being a person who considers themselves to own lots of "things", "junk", or "treasures" when I first read this question my first response was, "Oh....easy one."

However, that is not necessarily so. Lots of things popped into my mind but in all actuality they were not all that unique. Sure lots of these were treasures and most specifically treasures only to me, but throw in that word unique and they sorta fell short on the list. I have seriously never thought about what the most unique thing that I own might be.

But after spending a few moments thinking about this and doing a mental inventory of all my "things" I finally came to the conclusion that my most unique item I own would be the scrapbook from Cripple Creek dating back to 1913. It really is most unique and interesting and a real treasure. I am sure most of you if you have been hanging around here a while remember this book. If you are new to my blog and don't know what I am talking about, you can read about it  here and here. There are lots of pictures in the earlier post of the inside.

Not only is this book very unique, as I am sure there is only one in existence, but it took me on a journey to locate and find out what happened to the girl who owned this scrapbook. Thinking about this today, I realized I never shared the rest of the story here on my blog. If you'd like to know how the story turned out, come back here on Thursday for Vintage Thingie Thursday and read the (at least to date) last chapter of this treasure hunting experience.

Have you ever thought about what the most unique thing you own might be? What makes that particular thing unique? I bet if you stop and think about it, your answer may surprise you. Be sure to link in below and share your unique item with us.


  1. I do remember this. I can not wait to see what you found out! How fun!

  2. What a very cool book! I'm going to read the old posts about it. I'm like you I own lots of stuff but unique. I need to give this some thought!
    hugs, Linda

  3. I hope my chair is as unique as I believe it is.. I too am going back to read about your book. Blessings, Debbbie

  4. I read all the posts about this book. I can totally understand becoming attached to her! I did some light research about the people we were given when we went to the Titanic exhibit in Detroit and after having represented someone else for an hour, I felt a connection. As soon as I read my card and the title Reverend, I knew I didn't survive, but the family members I was traveling with did. It's easy to become attached to someone from the past who comes into your world. Awesome book to have!!

  5. The second link I posted is the right one. I apologize for the double link! I love your Tell Me Tuesday blog!


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
