Souvenir is defined two ways; as a noun it means a keepsake or memento that is a of a place or occasion. It also is a way to remember someone, perhaps someone we have lost, or someone who is away for a long period. The origin is French, which may be why graves are often marked with a plaque that says; “Souvenir”. My belle-mere (mother-in-law) recently passed away. Going through her things I found a charming old album. It wasn’t filled with post cards, or photos, but with small handwritten remembrances and colorful die-cut paper figures. This jogged my memory because I bought a large box of these at a brocante in Bergerac last year. How wonderful to use these die-cut images to make a sweet souvenir for your valentine? I have packets available for sale.
