As a young girl, my mum had this box stuffed full of old pieces of jewelry, obituary notices, odd photos and such. She kept it in my Dad's highboy, in the top drawer. I have always liked it and finally asked for it just before she died. She said it was a stationary box. I keep it out in view and this old teacup sits on top of it.
When I first decided to make a memory book , it was going to be a bound book. But then I found the idea for a boxed portfolio in Fabric Memory Books by Lesley Riley. Perfect! I am in the mood to box up memories!
