Treasure box

Our family was so liberated by the cleaning of my son’s room that we have started on the dungeon basement. I can tell this is going to be a long process. We are having too much fun reminiscing while we sort. Although I did part with this treasure box, I had to take a photo first. My grandmother made this for me when I was young. It was once a sparkly gold.

And another treasure awaited us inside, all my old glasses.

Aren’t these fabulous?

I even have art hidden in my basement! 🙂

  1. oh how funny – the bionic woman! You could probably sell those on ebay! 🙂

    My husband thinks so too. I personally can’t imagine anyone wanting them since I am in purge mode, but they certainly did make me smile.

  2. LOL. I was also thinking eBay!

  3. Oh, and isn’t it neat that through this blog you could post photos of the treasure box, tell the story, and keep the memory going?

    I should start a category called Grandma’s gifts. She made me so many interesting things as I was growing up. Although they were often quite odd, never quite fashionable, I dearly loved everything she made. I look at my life and see how many similar interests we have. I just wish I had discovered that while she was still on this earth.

  4. i used to have eyeglass cases like those! haha… what fun to reminisce like that…!

  5. I LOVED THE BIONIC WOMAN! Oh yes the good old days! Why did they ever cancel that show?:-)

  6. Somewhere… I think I have the faces of the Three Wise Men. Their hair, beards… are all made of glued on pasta. Angel hair, macaroni, shells. I spray painted them gold and mounted on felt.

    I made them when I was just starting out and was too broke to buy a whole bunch of Christmas decorations. Actually it looked quite nice the first year… but it didn’t store well.

    While first starting out, I bought shiny ribbon and made bows to decorate the tree since I couldn’t afford decorations. I used them for years adding a decoration or two along with them each year. Now the tree is full of decorations and the ribbons have been discarded. I miss them.
