My treasure

During my junk exodus last weekend I threw out a giant jewelry box. It was my mothers and I had it for years and years, and years and years. Mostly I kept my junk jewelry in it. It was filled with earrings with no matches, broken necklaces, stones that had fallen out of things, pendants to ugly to wear, and just random shiny things. The jewelry box itself was in shreds. It needed to go. I took everything out of it and put all of my shiny stuff in a cardboard box. I also have another jewelry box that is very small, but also filled with things I can neither wear nor bear to throw out.

I would like to buy a treasure chest for these things.  Something like this;

At least then I could continue to accumulate and have a place to put them.  Someday when a small person, maybe a grandchild, maybe a grandniece or nephew, came to my house I could let them play with my treasures. I could also keep the chest on my dresser and it would look a lot better than a cardboard box. I think it needs to be pretty big though, my life is filled with a lot of treasures.


I wanted to tell stories of my life today. I feel slightly sentimental and filled with the need for creative typing. Sadly I can think of no stories to tell!
