jewelry box with a historyJanuary 21st, 2009 in member junk
This jewelry box has a funny story. I decided I wanted to modify a jewelry box for my oldest daughter to use as a dolly wardrobe - so I combed the junkstores for one but couldn't find one that fit what I had in mind.
I mentioned to my mother what I had in mind and asked her to keep her eye out and she responded by telling me they had one just like what I wanted in the basement because my youngest sister had left it behind when she went to college and she didn't want it anymore.
I very quickly realized that it was the jewelry box that my youngest aunt gave me when I was a preteen. She was in college at the time and a boyfriend had given it to her. When they broke up, she didn't want it anymore.
It was one of those tacky brown numbers that aren't even made of good wood - but it looks nice here. I tried to decorate it so my daughter could use it as a jewelry box when she outgrew dolls, which is why the Mary Cicely Barker fairies are under the lid. My daughter decided she wanted a jewelry box so the doll clothes - well you can imagine...
