Open The Box

Here's a few of the things from 'The Box'... the bell still has it's dinger, donger, clapper.... whatever you want to call it. The paint is peeling from the large bauble but I think that adds to it's charm.


Do you remember the ones like these with the indented middles?...it's got beautiful frosty glitter around it. I'm surprised any have survived as they're all glass.
There will be a closer look at some of my favorites at a later date. These baubles ( and there are more) are by no means the oldest things in the box and I'm sure they will bring back a lot of memories! but you'll have to wait!

I have some like those up in the loft. When I get them down we'll have to get together and oh and ah and compare.

My mum threw out all our old glass baubles! I think quite a few of them had broken but even so...so it is lovely to see some that have survived. Thanks for sharing.
