With all the talk about treasure maps and treasure ships recently, it got me thinking about my treasure and my own treasure box, it is not a very fancy box and what is inside doesn't hold much in the way of monetary value but I thought I would share some of my treasure....
|a collection of letters, postcards, photos and cards|
These are all wedding related, the cuff links my husband wore, they are pints
of Guinness! The red string was tied around our wrists in the ceremony in
Cambodia, the little bottle was a personalised wedding favour, in the
red and gold box are candles the priest gave us, we should light them in
times of trouble apparently. The bracelets were given to me by a little girl
as we went for the elephant ride she told me I looked like a princess
and the cards were messages collected my best friend from all our friends
The top is the box that contains my 'jewels' my gran who has passed
away now gave these to my when I was 21, there is a note inside
the box saying that they were purchased in 1958. I was supposed to have
received the rest of her jewellery when she died but this is all I have.
The bottom was a discovery yesterday, I forgot I had put it in this box for
safe keeping when we moved, it is an Icelandic rune carved into a blue/grey
stone and a gift from Di.
So, what do you treasure? Do you have some of your families body parts and random gifts from people you don't know?
