I placed some items in the top of the box that I have collected over the years - small mirror, gloves that were mine, shoe pin cushion, little iron pitcher, pearls, and a photo of me at 6 months. Notice the lack of hair. Didn't have much until I was 2 and then it came in curly and is still that way.
The little heart pillow has seen better days, but I love it. This was not one of my shoes, but it found it and it needed to be rescued since it was all by itself.
I remember when we wore gloves to church, especially on Easter. I saved two pairs that I wore when I was around eight or nine.
I added some vintage thread spindles and a milk jar with some of my marbles when I was little.
Although I love to paint furniture, I don't think I will be painting it anytime soon.
It is nice to look at these items and remember. Do you have any special pieces from your childhood?
