"In every nook, I find little things that tell me about her. She was a noticer,. . . . , like me, for all the shelves are lined with shells, bird feathers, dried sea grasses, pebbles, eggshells, and the skeleton of something that might be a bat. They're just bits that were lying on the ground, that anyone else would step over or on, but she saw they were beautiful and brought them home."
~Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, The Guernesy Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
