I don't have very many items in my home that I treasure. Yes, I like fun stuff, but if the house were on fire the one item I would want to make sure I grabbed is this little treasure:
It isn't perfect, but the sentimental value is priceless. I think my momma left her toddler size mark on the inside of the door. I can just imagine her in a baby doll style dress and dark ringlets.
It doesn't hold much. What I found in the drawer today is probably a bit different than what it used to hold in years past.
I didn't even realize until I took the picture how different the tin is in each door. Now that I look at it, I believe the tin on the right is the original.
Yep, it's not perfect, but it is a treasure to me.
Do you have a treasured heirloom? Do tell!
