Vintage Thingie Thursday




Didn't get my computer back yet, but figured out how to save pics on DD's computer, so here we go. This little honey came from DMIL when she moved into Assisted Living, it has a Ben Franklin Sticker on the bottom that says $1.19 on it!!!!!!!! Isn't it beautiful??? it is wooden and that is a real cameo on the front of it, inside is a locket with my Great Grandmothers photo in it and the other vintage jewelry came with the box from Grandma. It sits on the Bookshelf that my Uncle made me when I was a little girl, that is where I put alot of my oldies but goodies. :) Check out http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/2009/04/vintage-thingie-thursday-vintage.html

Beautiful. I have seen lots of pretty wooden boxes, but I can not remember seeing one with a cameo on the front. I love this one, very unique. Have a great week and Happy Easter!

I really like the box, but the necklace is really nice. And to have such a special picture already in it, well that just makes it even better.

I love wood boxes - I used to collect them years back - they are fascinating for what they are, what can be placed inside them, and what they can become!

Family treasures are the BEST treasures! Enjoy! Happy Easter

The little box is a treasure as is the locket but I really like the fact that it has Mountain Home, Idaho printed on the lid showing that it is a souvenir piece!
