@World_Museum @tibetcurator @lauren_working @ERC_TIDE Slight breach of the rules (but if books count, can't see why records wouldn't...), my precious object is my favourite album. Picked it up 2nd hand in a now defunct record shop in Leeds that smelt of damp anoraks and boy's changing rooms. https://t.co/9jIKXMJNKb

Hello everyone its @tibetcurator #WMWhereNext & @lauren_working @ERC_TIDE with more to share! Last week you met @BHSAcademy students with @luckyflowerhowe Now take a look at how they (re)imagined #ChineseCeramics through poetry 😍😍😍 Film by the wonderful @bellevuefilms 1/5 https://t.co/3nveAZWBJg

Absolutely wonderful! Poetry gives a voice to museum objects: ‘Yawn! I am so bored! I’ve been stuck here for years!’ Let this thread by @World_Museum take you away. https://t.co/O2U6AmE5KP

@World_Museum Thanks for these lovely prompts you're setting twitter! I'm enjoying remembering myself and reading along with others' stories.

I found my miniature Shakespeare Romeo & Juliet book in a Save The Children charity shop cabinet. It cost £2, and I remember how I have always tried to find out more information about the little book. #ObjectMemories #WMWhereNext @World_Museum https://t.co/rNxZf8L5D5

@World_Museum @tibetcurator @lauren_working @ERC_TIDE Now that I no longer wear a wedding ring, I wear this instead. It reminds me of my grandmother, her strength and fierceness. I can turn it round to look like a wedding ring if I feel the need to protect myself (yes, this is a thing). It is a talisman, a protection. https://t.co/gxUBYjqAP8

@World_Museum @tibetcurator @lauren_working @ERC_TIDE This ring isn't intrinsically valuable but is important to me. It was given to me by my grandmother. She was given it by her grandmother. It was made from her grandmother's wedding ring and gt aunt's engagement ring. I think it's rose gold and coral. https://t.co/flEZ8s3rfg

Yet when I do consciously notice it, images of overbusy late-night trains, of a sun-lit Antwerp parish square in late September, of Leuven, all play happy memories in my head. Funny how this very common-or-garden object is so deeply nostalgic. #ObjectMemories

I still don't notice that ring often. I fiddle with it; I take it off and forget where I put it for days on end; if I were to have to give a missing person description of myself I wouldn't think of mentioning it, even though I wear it 24/7. But it's a constant and a connection.

And then I moved to Cambridge. A couple of months before that move, I had lost most of the things I cared about in a flat fire. But I still had that ring. And now it started to remind me of my time in Leuven, as one of the few physical remnants of it.

As much as a link to my home in Antwerp, it became a reminder of that first train journey, that travel to a new place/phase and a new happiness. #ObjectMemories

While I was in Leuven, I finally started to feel at ease with myself. So that ring started to also remind me of anxious little 18-year-old-me, getting on that train, a bit excited but also very frightened about what the next few years would hold. #ObjectMemories

For four years, that ring that I never meant to be anything special, that I didn't even really buy very consciously, came to mean a lot because of the moment I put it on. #ObjectMemories

But because I first put it on the night that I, for the first time, took the train to Leuven, and because it was the local parish fair about half a minute from my front door, it came to remind me of my home in Antwerp, with my parents. #ObjectMemories

I bought it at the parish fair the weekend before I started my undergraduate degree in Leuven. It was just something to even out a note and support the second hand market. I wasn't particularly attracted to it, it didn't specifically catch my attention.

This very basic and boring ring:

Over the past 14 years, this boring ring has come to remind me of significant moments and different senses of home. https://t.co/4FAiQhrH8R https://t.co/ywjFCojoT8

Taking the 'knit' literally for #ObjectMemories: I took up knitting as stress relief last year (good timing). These 3 things - the double pointed needles, circular needle, and gauge/row counter - are all from my great granny's knitting bag, and I use all of them regularly. https://t.co/y4hHH1NqYw https://t.co/DyxrHB6yCd

For @ERC_TIDE @World_Museum #ObjectMemories — a beaded Chumash necklace from a powwow I attended in California in 2018. Pictured w/ a Dutch painted tile: in a roundabout way, studying history is what brought me to see the Indigenous world that had been all around me growing up. https://t.co/GshrXAmMXI
