The journal belongs to the home. The current owners have custodianship of it and the pleasure of completing one chapter. When they leave the journal is left as a gift to the new owners. The journal’s purpose is to provide a tangible link between the current owners and those who have previously made the house their home—giving a peek into its history, and a glimpse into the stories of those who have loved the house in their turn. The journal contains chapters for each owner to complete. They contain space for - Your family name, The dates you moved in and out, Why you moved here, Improvements or changes you made to the house and garden, The thing you liked best about living here, Best memories and memorable events, Why you are leaving the house, Where you are moving to, Plenty of blank pages for photographs and keepsakes. The journal is a perfect gift for house warmings and weddings, and would be equally appreciated as a birthday or Christmas present—for someone else or yourself.
