memory



When I was little, my sister Jamie always won when we played Memory. Later, I figured out it was because we'd play on my mom's glass coffee table, and Jamie would always lay down for a cat nap or two during our playing. She was smarter than I, and it took a few years for me to figure out that she could see through the glass. It also took a few years for me to figure out how she knew when traffic lights were going to change. I thought she was brilliant. Actually, I still do.

In my adult life, I think this Maharam Memory Game from DWR would be fun to have on my coffee table with a little nod to my childhood.

Jamie's a cheater.

Ali, I'll play with you on your glass coffee table, but I think I might prefer the old memory game where we can make matches of a strawberry, a shoe, and an umbrella.

Ali- I have this memory game. The Maharam fabric rep gave them to all the designers in my office one Christmas. They own the right to some great classic patterns but I will say that the cards were a little flimsy. The original Memory Game cards were much more substantial- lucky for Jamie!

Jamie rules memory, but Ashley still rules Clue. Colonel Mustard in the library with a lead pipe.

How do they do it?
