I was born in 1975 and growing up, Star Wars was a HUGE deal – particularly for my older brother and our cousins. Okay so not really “cousins” more like 2nd cousins? The grandchildren of my grandmother’s sister (on my mom’s side). Anyway, I call my mom’s cousin my Aunt Sheryl and her children my cousins.
Anyway, my Aunt Sheryl saved every Hasbro Star Wars toy from the 70’s and 80’s (many still with their original boxes) and for years she’s been pulling them out for her grandchildren. This past weekend we went to visit her and it was the first time that my own boys were truly enamored by these family “heirlooms.”
Tim is also a big Star Wars fan and while he had some of these toys, he’s like a kid again getting to play with the ones he never had.
The image prompt for this week was “Own the Frame” and shooting with intention. I thought about coming in more so that I could keep the big bin on the right side of the frame out of it but ultimately I liked what it added to the story. The bin is empty because the toys were dumped onto the window seat. And on the lower right you can just make out the plastic carrier container for the Star Wars figures that my husband spent more than an hour organizing after Ryker was done playing with the toys.
