aniam55: I could not agree more. While I love to take pics of many things, including items that really matter to me, I will always keep those objects. There are so many antique pieces that can be used for storage. There shouldn't be a need to get rid of these things. Just put them away for now and bring them out again the next time you feel the need for change. Besides, ever try to find that pic of that "beloved object". Even with todays tech advances for storage of photos, it still takes time to find it again and then you can't touch it. You can't feel that visceral connection. I will always want to have that special piece!

Aniam55, I have taken pictures of old family items that I just could not fit into my downsized home and then given them away. I made a few of the pictures into greeting type cards and they live on that way... with an old silver plated water urn (way too big to display anywhere) I kept just part of it - the drinking 'cup' - and use it as a small vase...a couple photos have ended up in the photo 'brag books' I have downsized my photo albums into. The items live on and will never be forgotten, but are simply in another form.
