Broken Memory by joysabin

Broken Memory

Oh crap! The aerodynamics of a dog toy (the green thingy) are difficult to judge especially when one isn't careful. I was tossing the toy over hand and it chose to fly into a glass violin bottle that belonged to my Grandmother. The bottle sat on top of a 5ft bookcase and I gave it little thought about its safety. Wrong, wrong, wrong. I am on the fence about trying to fix it.

This is for this weeks dogwood- trash.
what a shame - lovely entry for the Dogwood challenge

Well it's beautiful trash. I think you should try to fix it. Doesn't look like there are too many pieces.

As long as there are a few good sized pieces I'd try. If there are some little shards it may not be worth the effort. IMO. Does make a good picture but at a cost.

I would definitely try to fix it.

how unfortunate. it's a lovely bottle. i hope you can get it fixed.

@shannejw And I can't blame anyone but myself.

@jernst1779 I think that I should at least try. So very grateful for the fav.

@gardencat I should have been more careful, it was not worth much except to my heart.

@henrir I think that I should give it a try.

@summerfield I will be getting some super glue soon.

your poor thing. I hope there is some skilled craftsman who can fix it. Good luck.
March 23rd, 2019  
Oh gosh, what a shame. But do try to mend it.
March 23rd, 2019  
Oops, whether you fix it or not you will always have the memory of its time in your life and also its demise.
March 23rd, 2019  
It will still hold your memories even if it does end up a little damaged and patched.

Lovely trash... and nothing lasts forever! Fav

Love the colours and reflection but pity on the flask.

Such a shame about the violin bottle. (definitely try to fix it-it is stilll a treasured keepsake).

Lovely colours transferred into the relfections.

Oh dear, it's a thing, an item, an object. But, it has emotional value, memories and history. Get off that fence....... made a great shot for you though!

what a shame, but lovely colours and dof

@yrhenwr Grateful for the fav, one less thing to dust too, not that dusting happens often :):)
@yaorenliu I tried but alas, too many small pieces that I couldn't find.
@golftragic I did try but not meant to be.
@onewing I also now a different appreciation for tossing dog toys in the house.
@robz I agree memories of the heart are better than just a thing anyway.
@ingajohansson Thank you so much.
@ziggy77 I asked my sons if they had any attachment to it, which they didn't so, I am not too sad that I couldn't mend it properly. I rather let it go then hold on to a broken memory.
@30pics4jackiesdiamond I did break it a while ago, I am finally glad that I got one more memory out of it. My Grandmother would understand, she got it at a tag sale.
@haskar Shouldn't have indulged with the dog- should have gotten outside and tossed where it was better. Live and learn.
