Make Mine Pink Friday ~ Secrets of Mothers Jewelry Box

I love this fridays theme. As a child I loved going through my Mothers and Grandmothers jewelry boxes. It was back in the 60's and my Mom had alot of the enamal flower pins and bright colored bangles. I was a girly girl and I could play there for hours! My Grandmother had this wooden box she used for jewelry. I think it originaly had stationery in it. It had a little lock and key and I thought that was the most awesome thing ever. On one of my visits there she gave it to me. Of course the first thing I did was lock it and loose the key! My Grandpa had to cut the lock off and I was sad, but I still loved this box and I still have it to this day. I am not sure what it is that I love about this box, but my Grandmother owning it and giving it to me was everything to me. She was one of my absolute favorite people in my life.

Join all of us at Make Mine Pink for a one day shopping event that will bring back memories of your Mothers jewelry boxes too!
