SPT - Something Old


SPT Challenge:
"May means *wedding month* to me. and, no, this challenge is not going to be about weddings (unless you want it to be...) this month's challenge is simply:
Tuesday, may 6 something old
Tuesday, may 13 something new
Tuesday, may 20 something borrowed
Tuesday, may 27 something blue
take it literally, take it figuratively, but by all means, make a commitment to complete all four challenges for the month of may!"

This is my something old and it fits with mother's day. I got this jewelry box from my mom when I was young and she said that I could only have it if I would take care of it. She got it from her mother and so it's now an heirloom. My mom painted it herself, so that makes it extra special. I can't remember or not if it was her mothers, but I'll have to ask my mom. Anyway, someday I'll pass it on to one of my girls!


**Edited: My mom painted the front and glued the picture to the top. She did not paint the picture on the top, but it's still so cute. She chose a good picture to put on top. Sorry, I should have said that earlier in my post.

Isn't it wonderful to have little things around us that remind us of our family.
Your jewelry box is beautiful.

That is beautiful. I love things that we can pass on to our daughters. They mean so much.

I love family heirlooms especially when they have that personal touch. The box is beautiful. I'd love to put it in my house.

So neat to have something that you can pass down that was given to you.
I love that connection with the past!

Courtney said...

That is so cool! I love heirlooms...they just keep getting better and better!

That's a really cool box! Given that I'm either highly dumb or clueless or what have you, when I first scanned over the pictures before I read the post (which I tend to do...) I first thought maybe it was a dollhouse dresser, and I thought, wow! Someone put a lot of work into making that! And that your mom painted that? That's really something to pass along to your kids!

That is cool, I really wish I would have taken better care of the things that my mom gave to me as a child for special events. Good job for keeping it and taking such good care of it.
