Treasure Box 2: The Foil Rose

Chris made this tinfoil rose for me while we were in Alaska, where we first met. We were staying the dorms at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and Chris's dorm room did not have any blinds covering the window. As you may be aware, the sun doesn't exactly set during the summer in Alaska and sunlight all night can make it hard to sleep. So, Chris and his roommate improvised by covering the window with tinfoil instead.

By the end of the program that took us there, they removed the tinfoil as part of cleaning up and checking out. Chris decided to put it to use again by making me a flower.

He's made me many, many more flowers like this over the years, though most of them were made of napkins and didn't last long (I think if I went digging I might be able to produce a napkin rose from his Eagle Scout Court of Honor...). He liked that these flowers didn't die in the same way that real flowers do.

Today's five minute friday prompt was Family. I felt like it was good to start my Treasure Box writing with a symbol of the beginning of our family.

This is fun, it's going to take me a while to catch up on all your posts, but I really like this idea.
